Susan is like a personal trainer for the Soul.

Susan R. ( Manager, DC Nonprofit )

Susan helped me develop empathy. She coached me through multiple “truthful” (difficult) conversations with my colleagues, getting results that are beneficial for all parties.

Ben N ( IT Managing Director )

Susan is a compassionate and effective coach. I’ve worked with her for several years and the result of her coaching is transformative.

Susan has the wisdom of old age. I’m now stronger than my inner critic, and have improved my relationship with my spouse and in-laws. And with my company going through a merger, I have more direction and confidence.
