About Life Coach Sue

     Please reach out to me for more details on how coaching and/or hypnotherapy can help you design positive changes in your life!

I am an Intuitively Guided Life Coach and Transpersonal Hypnotherapist.  For as long as I can recall, I have had an intuitive ability and was naturally "life coaching" before it was even referred to as life coaching.  Once I began doing Life Coaching as a business, a client described me as being an Intuitive Life Wholeness Facilitator, so that is the "title" I have chosen to maintain over the years.  It fully encompasses the spirit-given gifts I bring into the world. Raised in the Midwest, where I still have family ties and reasons to visit, I always felt a tug to move to where the weather was warm more often than not!  Now living in Arizona, with my husband, and after being blindsided with some health issues that eventually sidelined me from the job I held, I've been blessed with opportunity to begin my own business.  I hold a degree in Healthcare Administration, but felt an inner guidance to learn and develop a more holistic approach for my life path.  I did a lot of research and finally returned to school to obtain a degree in Mind-Body Transformational Psychology, through Southwest Institute of Healing Arts, and found I was able to move into what has now become my second career; however, it is really a life path that I am honoring, more than a career.  The degree program helped me reconnect with my enjoyment of helping others, remember my love of writing, and opened doorways to the freedom to authentically BE me!  

I come from a heart-centric place in the guidance I offer and often bring to the sessions an artistic, creative, and humorous flair. Being a lifetime student in the art of living with a curious mind, I continue to learn all I can about spirituality and how I can best serve humankind.  I am proud of the personal relationship I have with God, Jesus, and Angels, guiding and inspiring me to share the Spirit-guided gifts bestowed upon me.  Yet, I am also very aware that there are other spiritual beliefs and I come to each session with an open mind and understanding heart.  I know that people can only be met at the level where they currently are in their own life, so what I am here to do is simply help plant seeds of change in the areas of a person’s life they wish to see change in, and this is done through Life Coaching or Hypnotherapy sessions, and even through Toe Readings!  

With training and experience as a Mind-Body Wellness Practitioner, I offer virtual (distance) sessions in Life Coaching, Transpersonal Hypnotherapy, Holistic Nutrition Coaching, Toe Reading, and Angel/Spiritually-aligned Intuitive Oracle Card Readings, to clients all over the country, and in the Phoenix, Arizona area I can set up "in-person" sessions.  I am also an Ordained Minster (Wedding Officiant/Life Celebrant) and an Inspirational Writer and Speaker, with a firm belief that there is a beautiful dance of synchronicity between the various aligned Mind-Body-Spirit Healing Arts modalities, such as Life CoachingHypnotherapy, and more. These modalities, alone or combined, have the ability to assist people in making a firm connection, or a re-connection, to their own life and discovering the true healing power within. 

We all have our stories, and you may be wondering how it came about that I finally stepped forward as an Intuitive Life Wholeness Facilitator (or as I also say a Spiritually-Guided Life Coach).  I have always believed in holistic methodology and in being a helper to others, but it's not like I woke up one day and said “oh today I think this is what I will be”.  No, it was a path, often crooked, many times pushing me down and taking me in directions that I never dreamed of going.  As often as I was knocked down, I got back up and ventured onward.  I knew my soul had a purpose here on earth and I was going to meet my destiny, once and for all.  Part of my story began, at the very young age of four (4), when I had a Near Death Experience (NDE) and a second NDE in my late teen years.  The first NDE impacted my life path most because it provided me with the gift of resilience and of being able to focus on what was happening around me, at the present moments.  At that very young age, I discovered I had the Spirit-given gift of Intuition.  When I was young, those Near Death Experiences were not as widely understood as they are now, so while it was agreed that "something" had happened to me during the time I was admitted into the hospital, was given last rites, and then woke up in that hospital bed, I was told it would be best not to talk about it because other people might think I had lost my mind.  I wanted to talk about it but instead kept it inside and became a painfully introverted child.  It was in that silence I developed the gift of listening and observing which soon became my normal way of being (or showing up) in the world.  Although, there were many times throughout my life I was made to feel that there was something wrong with me because there was so much focus on how quiet I was, I was simply taking in, and reflecting, on all the sights and sounds of the world around me. This reflection serves me well in the intuitive modalities I now offer. I learned compassion and acceptance that we are all part of the human race, yet we are also very different in what we bring forth in the world. As I got older I had a realization that we are all born into this world with unique gifts to share and, somehow, someway, events in our life will eventually place us on the path we are meant to walk.  It took me years to finally "show up" and brings my gifts forth into the world. 

Through a series of set-backs due to health and career/job choices, I felt a strong inner guidance to go on a trek to find my true life purpose. One such purpose I discovered was Life Coaching; however, I had no idea that I had already been doing this for years!  I was that child/teen/adult that others would seek out when they needed to talk things over, and very often I ended up asking them to think about the situation in some other manner, thus I was doing Life Coaching for most of my life (and I had no idea I was naturally doing this).  I also have had several different people, throughout my life, tell me that my voice was relaxing and that I should consider doing something "career-wise" that used my voice.  Now I am!  

With extensive training received from Southwest Institute of Healing Arts, I knew I was finally able to turn my passion for helping others into a Life Coaching / Hypnotherapy practice.  Along with my underlying belief that our bodies have the innate ability to heal from the inside out, if we could only provide our bodies with the nutrition that is right for each of us, I also offer Holistic Nutrition Coaching as part of my practice. There may be times where I will suggest the use of essential oils as a way to bring in the healing aromatherapy energy or we might end up discussing how to incorporate in flower essences for the ongoing healing energy we need to all be aware of in our own personal lives.  In our society today, many people tend to feel broken or fragmented, as if they are missing key elements of something more in their life.  This is where Life Coaching, Hypnotherapy, Holistic Nutrition Coaching, and even Toe Reading, can be the right path to bringing answers to the surface. When a person is able to bring together the combination of their health, work, relationship(s), and spirituality, they then have the ability to finally feel a sense of being whole.

As I have matured, I have learned how to harness my gift of Intuition and found that there were ways I could put it to good use in the world. Through my education at Southwest Institute of Healing Arts, I learned how to show up as a compassionate Intuitive Life Wholeness Facilitator with a passion fully engaged in teaching others about optimal wholeness and well-being.  My coaching approach is very soul-centric and intuitively-guided, and I am dedicated to helping others learn how they can "BE Soul-amazing and learn to listen to their inner guidance". Pulling from a Treasure Trove of Life Coaching tools, a variety of Hypnotherapy scripts, utilizing key elements from "The Hero's Journey" (a journey that we are all on, by the way), using metaphors, my sense of Intuition, and compassionate humor, I have been able to help many people find ways they can ‘Create the Path, Purpose, Blueprint, Art, and Soul of their own life.  

What is keeping you from allowing yourself the opportunity to recognize, re-define and re-discover your true potential? Contact me so we can have a conversation about how you can live your life on purpose!

Each of these modalities can be done in a virtual (distance) setting so you can live anywhere in the country and still receive sessions from me. Designed from an intuitively guided, soul-centric level, life coaching and/or hypnotherapy sessions help bring clarity to you and your goals. I’ve been on the other side of change and am proof that, given the right tools to work with, allowing the right people to assist you, and being willing to make the investment in your own person growth, positive changes can (and will) take place in life.  Namaste!
