Suzanne offered my partner and I, individually and jointly, safe and transformative sessions/spaces to express ourselves and communicate better. Suzanne’s experienced and insightful approach helped us to become more aware of ourselves and negative cycles, to repair rupture, and to show our appreciation and deepen our love for each other. We found Suzanne to be kind, smart, calm and nurturing, non-judgemental, caring and generous – she is 100% a person you want to have on your team.

Thank you Suzanne for sharing your expertise, support, and beautiful energy with us. We are so blessed that the universe aligned us with you. Your ability to read us, hold us in a safe space, and draw authentic emotion from us is amazing! I would very much recommend this experience.
