Susan is a licensed psychotherapist and writing coach who practices both in my office in Cupertino, California and virtually (via telephone) around the world. She is also an author and speaker.

Do you feel you could be happier and living a more creative and fulfilling life?

She maintains a psychotherapy practice with a focus on creativity and authentic happiness. I integrate the use of EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization & Reprocessing), hypnotherapy, gestalt therapy as well as writing as a part of the process of healing, growth & transformation.

Are you a writer who is stuck or a non-writer who wants or needs to be writing?

In her coaching practice she works with stuck writers to address the emotional and psychological blocks encountered in the process of writing (i.e. Writer's block, fear, or trauma related to self-expression). For reluctant, new and aspiring writers as well as veteran writers who have gotten off track, she provides structure and support in writing basics and accountability.

Are you looking for practical and straight-forward books to get started with journaling?

She has taught personal growth journal writing since 1978 and as a result, is the author of When Your Heart Speaks, Take Good Notes: The Healing Power of Writing and Writing From the Inside Out: Using a Journal for Personal Growth & Transformation.

Do you need a dynamic speaker for your group or organization?

She has been teaching and training since 1978 and am an experienced and accomplished speaker. Topics include but are not limited to:

➢ Journaling for Healing, Growth & Transformation

➢ Practical Strategies for New & Aspiring Writers

➢ Life, Creativity & the Pursuit of Happiness
