About Me and My Work

What kinds of projects, tasks, or challenges do you typically partner with nonprofits on?
As a grief coach, I coach friends, family, and managers who want to support someone close to them who is grieving. Grief is a natural reaction to any kid of loss - whether through death, the ending of relationship, retirement or job loss, or other forms of loss.

I also provide education for nonprofit organizations who want to be increase their grief-literacy and responsiveness to staff and community members who may be grieving.

I provide training on trauma-informed practices and facilitation skills for organizations. I offer curriculum and program development services; customized training design and implementation; and meeting and retreat facilitation.
Why would someone choose to work with you?
I am an International Coaching Federation Certified Coach, a certified Grief to Gratitude coach, consultant, facilitator, educator and masters-level social worker. I bring my 20 years of experience as a social worker to my coaching practice.

As a facilitator, I bring 20 years of experience designing and delivering participatory workshops and trainings. My work is grounded in trauma-informed practices, and I strive to create intentionally designed learning spaces where learners can take risks, make mistakes, share feelings, get feedback, and continue to grow.

I work remotely so location is not an issue.

Testimonials:
"I felt supported, seen, and encouraged during my time with Susanna."
"Susanna is so easy to talk with; her warmth, presence, curiosity and deep listening were what I needed to shape my aspirations into manageable goals and to experience movement and progress. Susanna asked thought provoking questions, held me gently accountable and provided support and resources in and out of sessions to keep me on track. Susanna is such a skilled and compassionate coach! I am thrilled with the results!”
“Susanna led a beautiful, non-judgmental dialogue for our group each week. She helped us all tap into our individual stories so that we could move forward in our grief while also nurturing common threads so we didn't feel alone. It was such a wonderful, easy process and I feel so connected to the other women in our group!”
