"I didn't know who I was. I hadn't heard my true self. How can I stand up for myself if I don't really know who I am? Now I have my voice back." Donna, Albuquerque, New Mexico “You changed my life/blew the cap off a dormant volcano. The woman truly has a way to open a stone without cracking it.” Ondewewe, Santa Fe, New Mexico “My voice has found its feet!” Alice, Albuquerque, New Mexico “I am now finally free to allow the song of my life to emerge. I may not be a great singer, but I am a song. My life is a song.” Joy, Albuquerque, New Mexico “Susan has a deep, gentle, yet strong ability to listen and connect and a rare ability for support, one only found with the best of healers. We met during my darkest hour – I was struggling with a complete breakdown of my health. The sessions were tailored for what I could neurologically and emotionally integrate. No goal was unworthy or insignificant. It gave me something to live for during a dark and difficult time. It is significant that we worked by phone almost exclusively for five years. Her ability to hear and feel me, to listen, transcended the distance. As I see my growth over these years in my ability to listen to my stillness, my sound, to all the “scary” places in me, I can feel the influence of our sessions. Making peace with all my sounds brings joy and I find that it frees my song." Susi, California "Thank you, Susan for mentoring me. A whole new life has evolved to balance my 40 years of nursing with more alive ideas and dreams. The vocal toning and sounding reawakens the creative, joyful, trusting little girl in me who was shut down. And I find "more of me" daily as I teach and learn about music/singing with others and as I volunteer at the bedsides of the dying with the thresholdchoir.org here in NYC." Ruth, Yonkers, NY
