Susan’s sense of humor is refreshing and puts me at ease when talking to her – she is real in her approach and challenges me to not only look at situations for what they are, but also how I could make them better.

Working with Susan has helped me look at situations more willingly from different perspectives and be kinder to myself. Susan has also helped me to trust my instincts more readily. She really knows how to read between the lines, which makes her a great coach.

Susan is an intelligent and compassionate listener and is able to quickly synthesize what your goals and objectives are, leverages your strengths and helps you realize and remove your blocks so you can achieve your desired success with excellence and ease.

Susan's coaching was an enormous help to me in clarifying my career goals and developing a game plan to launch my new business. I highly recommend her to anyone looking for a superbly talented coach who is passionate, knowledgeable, and committed to your success.

I’ve worked with Susan on several occasions, including navigating personal dilemmas, health motivation, and business restructuring. Susan helped me remodel my mindset in ways that allowed me to move forward and understand what was hindering my growth.

Susan’s gift as a coach is the range of topics she can meander through without judgment. Susan helped me stay accountable so that I actually met my goals; they weren’t just an abstract idea. She has challenged me and afforded me the gift of transformation.
