Like many of the people she serves, Susan’s career path has taken several turns and shifts. As well as turning to the online world as a coach, she’s been a counselor and psychotherapist in private practice for almost thirty years.
Susan started her education with an undergraduate degree in drawing and painting. Her creative interests have been a theme throughout her life. Her curiosity about what made some people more resilient than others led her to work as a registered nurse primarily in acute care psychiatry. Wanting to expand the opportunity she had to understand and support her client’s perspectives and well-being, she went back to university to get her master’s degree in counseling psychology. As well as her formal education, she counts as influences poets, yogis, artists, mystics, musicians, and meditators.
Susan treasures her relationships with her family, friends, and community. She practices chi kung, yoga and reiki. She is a lover of the fun of pot lucks; of mist and rain; of trees, dogs, and silence.
Susan’s book “One Choice at a Time: A Practical Guide to Well-Being” is an accessible and engaging guidebook designed to help the reader develop and maintain well-being, resourcefulness, and resilience. Step by step exercises are interwoven with compelling stories of her clients using, integrating and benefitting from the practices described. You can purchase it by contacting Susan HERE
