Susan seeks to empower her clients on their personal healing journeys, and to support people in empowering their animals on their journeys. Essences, energy work, intuitive listening and guidance can help us find our way with greater insight, awareness, discernment, fortitude and joy. Susan offers these tools to support and help guide her clients' process, but in truth each of us is our own healer, and we heal from within.

Free, no-obligation 15 minute introductory discussions are available for potential clients. If you're undecided about whether essences or telepathic communication could be helpful to you or your animal, feel free to call or e-mail Susan for an appointment to discuss your concern.
