Susan seeks to empower her human and her animal clients on their personal healing journeys. Essences, healing sessions, intuitive listening, and insightful guidance can help us find our way with greater awareness, fortitude, and joy. Susan offers her work to support and help guide her clients' journey, while honoring the essential truth that we are each 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 Susan's essences or services could be helpful to you or your animal, feel free to call or e-mail her for an appointment to discuss your concern.
