WHICH CONTEXT WORKS FOR YOU?
I was raised in a small North Carolina town by parents who taught me the value of unconditional love, communication and a deep faith. Through 10 years in advertising, 27 years of teaching and coaching children and adults, and re-tooling myself in graduate school while raising a precious family of my own, I am thrilled to unpack my experiences and my training to empower and equip others.

What People Are Saying
Susan has that rare combination of extraordinary empathy paired with the ability to help move clients forward with a gentle nudge. She is very skilled at finding the source of her clients’ challenges and helping them to see another path that will help them grow in the direction of self-actualization. I believe coaching is an art as much as it is a science. Susan’s natural gift for connecting with people and her broad education bring both art and science to her work.”SB
Susan’s guidance has been instrumental in helping my son thrive in school. She has given him advice on how to work with classmates, how to resolve conflicts and how to tame those emotions that sometimes boil over. She has talked our whole family through a difficult move. Giving advice on how to best handle things as parents and also assisting our kids on expressing their feelings and concerns about moving to a new house. Her strengths involve helping children stay calm, processing their emotions (even when they’re too young to identify what they’re feeling), and working together to find solutions to different challenges. Always reassuring and uplifting, I’m glad to have Susan as a resource to help me and my children navigate the river of life.”KF
Susan’s insightful coaching helped me move through a difficult time with more confidence, and gave me a greater ability to discern how to take care of myself while being a primary caregiver.”KA
