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.

REVIEWS for my Bodywork services

by Kari on Sep 15
I love how Susan creates a very safe and nonjudgmental space during her sessions. It’s really amazing how she can find an issue that I didn’t even realize I had, which then allows everything else to correct itself. I am a physical therapist and I have been going to Susan for almost 4 years now, and have also brought my son to be treated. She is incredibly knowledgable in what she does.

Susan has a wonderful touch, sensitivity. Very professional and caring.

Susan really knows her stuff. I sought her help after getting whiplash and a concussion from an auto accident. I feel much better after just a few sessions with her and look forward to continuing to partner with Susan to experience less pain and more health!

We have been so blessed to find Susan to care for our daughter. She has been seeing Susan since she was about 1 years old (roughly a year now). She has helped her tremendously in working through physical and emotional releases to improve her overall well-being. Thank you so much for everything! We love Ms. Susan. :)

Susan was very professional, talked me through what she was doing, and answered all of my questions. I couldn’t believe how much better I felt after one visit!

I experienced a major shift after the temporal bones were balanced! Welcome to my new life! I feel unstuck emotionally as well. Also, I feel deeply touched in the depths of my nervous system in a wonderfully healing way. Thank you, dear Susan! This is extraordinary work!

My first experience was wonderful ! Susan was so sweet and sincere! Even though I'm experiencing minor relief 3rd day out, I know it takes more than one visit to feel good results.
