My Philosophy
My purpose as a therapist is to create a safe space for clients to release long held patterns of pain, tension, and dysfunction. It takes a lot of energy to be in pain. Releasing pain allows us to redirect our energy toward nurturing and enhancing the body's innate ability to self-regulate and heal.

Why I do what I do
I’ve heard those disheartening words from my doctor, “There’s nothing more I can do for you.” After I got over the initial shock, I set out on a mission to find alternative therapies. Eventually, I discovered therapeutic bodywork, and most specifically, CranioSacral Therapy. Over time, this therapy, along with diet and lifestyle changes, has helped me to overcome a host of health challenges. The changes were so profound that I felt irresistibly drawn toward becoming a therapist. It gives me joy to share the gift of wellness with others.

Susan is an amazing person. She has vast knowledge and is able to use her skills to reduce pain, tension and other body aches. She is caring, and makes sure you are comfortable throughout the process. I am looking forward to me next session.

I lost taste and smell from Covid and Susan helped bring some of it back - I still can't believe it was possible after just 1 session so I hope healing of these senses will continue even after this session.
