Find your footing ~ Forge your path
Stuck in unhelpful habit loops?
Wanting to establish new and healthy routines?
Ready to do things differently but are unsure where to start?
I work with healthcare professionals and other caregivers who have decided it's time to make a change. The issue may be mindless eating, poor sleep, lack of exercise, problematic drinking, disease management, or chronic stress. You feel stuck and haven't been able to make a long-lasting and meaningful change. Or it may just be a sense that your well-being can be improved.

WHY MENTAL FITNESS MATTERS
The Key Factor in Establishing Habits
Mental fitness is your capacity to deal with life's challenges with a positive rather than negative mindset. It has a significant impact on your health and wellbeing, performance, and relationships.
Drawing on research from neuroscience, cognitive psychology, and performance science, you'll learn techniques to improve mental fitness with several focused sessions of practice each day.
This approach to mental fitness promotes mindful awareness and attention to what matters most. It simplifies and streamlines rewiring the brain for good, allowing more time in positive emotional states like curiosity, compassion, joy, and awe. As a result, changing habits, strengthening connections, and making healthy lifestyle decisions is easier and more sustainable.

“Susan helped me to get back to exercise routine after labor. I was exhausted and sleep deprived and exercising felt like something distant. Susan helped me through it by her endless enthusiasm, encouragement, personalized quotes, and personal touch. She was flexible, creative, and celebrated every small step I managed to do. I wholeheartedly recommend her to anyone who wants to build a consistent exercise routine.”
“Susan was an absolutely great coach for setting my sleep habits straight! She checked in with me every day and gave me lots of insight into habit formation and sleep. Also, she gave me lots of little tricks - after trying a few out I can confidently say that these helped me tremendously. If you want to get better sleep, Susan is the coach for you! ”
“Susan was a great coach. She helped me establish more than just one habit - but several. She was calm and supportive. Recommend her highly!!”
“Before talking to Susan, I was sleeping sporadically throughout the day, with no bedtime whatsoever, and hitting the snooze button multiple times in the morning. With her constant encouragement and helpful suggestions, she helped me maintain better habits. I'm now going to bed at a more reasonable hour and getting out of bed on time, something that hasn't happened for me in over 10 years! Thank you Susan for all your help!”
