About Me (Suzanne)
Serving as a guide for finding the ways of YOUR path and clarifying language of Soul + Spirit, I offer skilled support and potent healing techniques.
An advocate for SACRED WELLNESS expressed as a natural healer, visioner, personal path specialist, energy shifter, Reiki teacher, Sensitive Yogi and
essential oil enthusiast. I provide soulful pause, create space for truths to
emerge, and fine-tune your ability to heal and thrive.
I am not THE teacher. Life is your teacher.
Not a guru or an expert, but a kick-ass guide.
I am highly sensitive + highly driven.
I provide value through meaningful interactions.
I am accessible, REAL and actively doing my own work.
I jibe well with other sensitive explorers.
I believe in the benefits of exploring truth in kindness.
"WARRIORS OF THE SPIRIT - fellow travelers on the spiritual path who are committed to creating a better world and using their lives as an opportunity to understand themselves in endlessly deepening ways."
~ description borrowed from Mariana Caplan in her book "Eyes Wide Open"
Who I Best Serve
You're WILLING to commit to doing the work and being the change you need.
You're open to exploration to find fresh pathways to sacred wellness.
You're more sensitive than most and likely spiritually inclined.
A bottom line truth - You NEED to do life your way.
Not everyone "gets" that or understands you.
You're ready to move forward anyway.
You're ready for YOUR more.
You're simply READY!
LIFE THROUGH MY LENS
feel the gist of my vibe through Instagram
With ten+ years as a paralegal in the corporate world before finding my soul’s work in the healing arts, I can appreciate the negative effects of stress and tension piled on by long work weeks, looming deadlines and the fast pace and high expectations of today’s work environment.
Graduating from the Southwest Institute of the Healing Arts (SWIHA) in 2001 with a massage practitioner degree led to work in a chiropractic office, where I developed the skills needed to work on clients with specific injuries or issues. From there my path led to the day spa community where an introduction to energy work occurred and my Reiki training began. In 2009, I returned to SWIHA for certifications in Transformational Life Coaching and Hypnotherapy. And in 2011, I began intensive training on a shamanic path. My apprenticeship with Spirit continues today.
I have enjoyed a lifelong connection to dream exploration, finding wisdom and guidance to illuminate my own life’s path.
As a highly sensitive person, I have navigated the full spectrum of human moods and emotions, learning to embrace the fruitfulness of darkness and light... motion and stillness. I carry understandings of profound pain, depressive cycles and the joy and fulfillment of souls set aloft.
