Working Together

Every unique woman I work with begins with my “Emerge into Joy” program.
This systematic program, steeped in transformational adult learning theory and practice, supports over-40 women in regaining energy, time for Self, and designing a life (and career), that’s meaningful, satisfying, and fulfilling!

In ten 1:1 sessions:

  • Reveal what’s been driving you (hidden influences) and why.
  • Release (unwittingly adopted) limiting beliefs and energy-draining actions.
  • Respond differently – shifting social conditioning to self-conditioning.
  • Reorient to living and creating with joy in the lead (what matters most)!

    *For an expanded program framework overview, please see below.

While many programs focus on high-level execs, my belief is every woman is a leader.
My program benefits: Women in leadership positions, entrepreneurs, and women in life/work transition.

Take business, leadership, and life to the level
of your choosing – with much more ease!


  • Give yourself the time and attention you need to recharge and sustain yourself.
  • Banish the tendency to overcommit (say “no” without feeling guilty).
  • Gain energy for “me time” and for work and play that’s important to you.
  • Melt self-doubt and feelings of “not enough.”
  • Be more engaged and present (cease future tripping).
  • Allow possibility and curiosity to lead you instead of “putting out fires.”

Say “Goodbye” to What No Longer Serves You and


Let’s talk for 30 minutes and see if what I offer is what you need and then create a plan that works for you. 

 The Emerge into Joy Transformation Framework
Reveal – Release – Respond – Re-orient

Note: This program utilizes two learning methods for powerful transformation:
~Declarative Learning: What’s read in books, classrooms – acquiring cognitive skills (The Emerge into Joy playbook).
~Procedural Learning: Acquisition and integration of new habits via (in-session) reflection and (fieldwork) repetition.
Plus… FUN! Take back the reins of your life with laughs and releasing tears too!  

Reveal what’s getting in your way (that you’re not seeing). Gain a greater understanding of the hidden socially conditioned forces that lead women to overwhelm, over-extending, and people-pleasing. Create space for JOY to emerge by fostering mindful awareness.

Release what is no longer serving you – calm the “monkey mind” and call-in clarity. By identifying hidden beliefs, feelings that trigger overwhelm, not enough, and self-comparison, come into focus. You gain valuable insight into where your energy leaks are and how to spend your precious life energy to achieve the results (and life) you desire.

Respond differently – shifting social conditioning to self-conditioning. The grip of self-doubt, “not enough,” and self-comparison loosens; healthy energy increases, motivation returns, overwhelm dissipates, confidence expands. You make wise choices (instead of reactively moving away from problems) that support your mission, your wellbeing, and what matters most to you.

Re-orient to the wisdom of your Soul – LEAD WITH JOY (not shoulds). No longer at the mercy of the perpetual “shoulds,” reliant on outside sources for your self-worth and happiness, or lost in the whirlwind of life, you re-own your power previously given away to others. You live in the present – expanding your ability to problem solve (without reacting), delight in the little things, and focus your precious time, energy, and attention on what truly matters to you.



  • Expand capacity for accomplishment, without overwhelm.
  • Claim your inner voice, embrace authentic self-expression.
  • Communicate in ways that reflect the truth of who you are.
  • Sharpen focus and streamline your attention to “what matters most.”
  • Foster sustainable contribution to self, family, community, and society.
  • Strengthen feminine leadership – cultivate intuition compassion, trust, connection, collaboration.
  • Lead by example – Women witnessing your life and business flourishing without a cost to your wellbeing gives them permission to do the same.
  • Be a trailblazer—break the culturally accepted paradigm that women must prove themselves, push hard to accomplish it all, and people-please to fit the mold of “good girl.”
  • Embrace an unwavering devotion to the wellbeing of Self.

Time Investment
Approximately 30-45 minutes for home-study learning and discovery exercises, plus ten in-person, 60-minute pivotal reflection sessions via Zoom. Please know, the content is designed for women who are tired – it’s easy to follow and comprehend without going into overwhelm. I work with no more than eight 1:1 clients per week, allowing optimal time and energy to support you and your process. 

Introductory Session – Getting to know each other – establishing your desired program outcome.
Session 1-2: These sessions, if possible, are best to complete back to back (weekly).
Session 3-8: Can be completed weekly, or every other week, with email support in between.
**Clients often opt for an extra week and extra session, between sessions 4 and 5 (included in your package).

Once the program is completed, many clients continue on with 30-60 minute sessions to support “devotion to self” while fostering what matters most.
**All clients, including Sabbatical clients, begin with the Emerge into Joy Program. It is essential to the “quickening” of the shifts you desire.

Let’s meet, answer your questions and I’ll provide additional information based on your needs!

“After a year of a lot of loss, I started to really question where I was and what I wanted to do with my life. I knew I wanted a change as what used to fulfill me, especially my career, just wasn't anymore. Suzy's program helped me take a step back and really get in touch with what I WANTED, not what my job wanted, not what my clients wanted, not what my family wanted... but what I really wanted. Through her amazing course, I found my voice and more importantly my joy. I have honestly never been more fulfilled, happier, and clear and that alone has been the biggest and best gift.

“I needed to do SOMETHING to move my business ideas forward, and I liked a lot of what I’d read on Suzy’s blog. I went into our work together thinking I’d emerge with a business plan, or some other concrete “product.” What I got out of it was SO much more valuable! I was able to identify all the ways I limit myself, look at self-sabotaging behaviors, and explore the reasons behind my lack of confidence in my work. As a result of my work with Suzy, I have started saying NO to things (which is huge for me), and when people ask me what I do for work, I’ve stopped saying, “I’m trying to start a business” and started saying, “I have a business.” Through this program, I really recognized how important the work I’m doing is to me, and I’ve started putting myself out in the world with more confidence. I’m meeting with my first paying clients this afternoon!” [1 year later Carrie’s business is 100% solvent!]

"Within the first two sessions, Suzy helped uncover a memory that started the process of unraveling my fear of failure. Such quick change happened with gentle, light-hearted conversations; pointed questions; simple, relevant goal setting; lots of laughter, and a few releasing tears–no pushing.

I wouldn’t trust just anyone to mentor me, but Suzy has led a life that I admire. She has been through enough growing pains and bumpy roads of her own, that I trust her wisdom. She also has challenged herself to be completely true to her inner knowing.

I love how Suzy glows. I love her commitment to joy and ease. I love her strength of character. I love her unpretentious spirituality. I love the mischievous look on her face when she is ready to give me an assignment. Each week I look forward to what I can work on next.”
