Life hurts sometimes, doesn't it? Maybe you feel stuck in the same old place, with the same old things bothering you. Maybe you find yourself at a "What's next?" moment in your life, either by choice or because you got hit with an unexpected change. Life is asking something of you, and you feel unprepared to meet the challenge.
Are you afraid you will always feel this way, that you will never be able to figure it out and feel better?
If you could tap into the innate wisdom within your heart and body, would you like to?
There are no simplistic answers, or you would have found them already. Yet, you CAN achieve the changes you want, with the right support.
"There are only two mistakes one can make along the road to truth; not going all the way, and not starting."
I raised five daughters and taught kindergarten for many years. When my 30 year marriage ended abruptly, I found myself staring in to the abyss of my future. "What's next?" I wondered. Fearful and shaken to my core, I sought support from others: therapy, life coaching, books, classes, workshops, retreats, massage, mindfulness, friends, family and music. I could not have done it alone. Part of my answer to "What's next?" was becoming a Certified Life Coach. A few years later, I discovered EFT, and trained as a Certified EFT Practitioner. It is my honor and privilege these days, to support others as they create lives of meaning, peace and freedom.
I hold a Master's Degree in Confluent Education from the University of California, Santa Barbara. I studied Life Coaching through the Institute for Life Coaching Training in Ohio, and am a Board Certified Coach through the Center for Credentialing and Education. I am also an Accredited Certified EFT Practitioner through EFT International.
Emotional Freedom Techniques, or "Tapping," is an easy-to-learn, gentle tool for releasing stress and difficult emotions. I guide you as you gently tap on energy points (acupuncture points) on your body, while focusing on something that bothers you. This combination of tapping and talking creates, for most people, the ability to transform and release the things that bother you. And, once you learn it, you can do it on your own, whenever you need it! Check out for more.
Choose EFT if you have specific issues you want to release or clear.
Most kids learn EFT easily, which is wonderful, because once they learn it, they have a self-help tool at their fingertips for the rest of their lives. EFT can be especially helpful for fears, worries, building confidence, and school stress. Sessions are short, just 35 minutes on Zoom, and parents or another responsible adult are invited to tap along with us. If your child is a preschooler, I can teach you how to help him/her with EFT at home.

I had the pleasure of having EFT sessions with Susan. I can't say enough about her sensitivity and thoughtfulness. It has made such a difference in my life. I was able to overcome deep barriers that I have lived with from childhood. I feel set free from them now. Which in turn gives me the ability to live live a happier life!

EFT tapping with Susan has made such a difference for me! It is a simple, easy-to-learn tool to help identify and neutralize thought patterns and emotions that may be affecting your life in negative ways. Susan made me feel comfortable and accepted and brought much wisdom and knowledge as a Life Coach to our sessions together. I have learned to listen to my body’s wisdom and have learned so much about identifying and processing my emotions. Now I feel I know how to claim my power with an ongoing practice as I learn new things about myself.

With the heaviness of this pandemic all around and unending time at home, my mind went all foggy and dull. I’ve been working on a project that I love, but was having a hard time making progress. In an individual session, Susan listened to me, named several aspects of what was up for me, and addressed them one by one. Amazingly, with the very first set of tapping and affirmations, I began to feel lighter in every way - physically, emotionally, energetically so much lighter, I was astonished! As we continued, the experience deepened and I felt the fogginess that had seemed in me or part of me, was now not me, but something separate and away. To finish, Susan had me find an image to use going forward and we worked with that – dynamic and meaningful. Now day by day, my energy does indeed continue clear. I am doing my work with more ease and having way more fun with it!

Susan helped me to find paths in my own life to take, and helped identify the tools needed to overcome the scary and fearful moments. She guided me and did not tell me what to do. She reminded me of my goodness and capabilities through acknowledgements. I have more peace of mind. I know that I am a work in progress and that I am not alone and that I have support.
