Presentations can be designed to suit your organization's or group's interests and needs.

* Individualized Tutoring * Mentoring *

Susan is an accomplished mentor in vibrational essences, especially with animal healers. Her years of clinical supervision, lecturing experience and patient counseling in medical, university and research facilities provided her with skills to transmit information on whatever level is appropriate for the listener. She would be happy to discuss your individual needs and design a program for you to learn about essences.

  • For lay people, essences are a fabulous healing tool to become comfortable with using for oneself and one's human and animal family.
  • For professional healers, this is a great way to focus on just what you need to know about essences so you can easily and confidently incorporate them into your own professional practice.
  • Inquiries are welcome from essence novices and experienced users alike.
