I’ve had a lot of different types of therapy and therapists over the course of my life, but I’ve never met anyone like Suzanne. It usually takes some time to overcome initial barriers and become comfortable with a therapist, but I trusted her immediately. I was impressed by her ability to be attuned and by her openness and her delightful sense of humor. She is well-versed in several different therapeutic modalities and combined them easily with SE work to create an approach that was not only organic but specifically and exactly suited to me. Through working with her, I’ve been able to shift lifelong emotional energetic patterns and their accompanying physical symptoms, and the relief I feel is profound. The work I’ve done with Suzanne has helped me enormously.
I am so incredibly grateful to you, Suzanne, for helping me through the stress of Board Exams. Being able to combine counseling, body awareness, massage and practical feedback made you uniquely equipped to provide me with support in so many different ways. During a vulnerable time for me, you were knowledgeably understanding, able to help me find the lighter moments, and help me keep this challenge in perspective. Your guidance in finding my resources moment by moment prevented my last-minute "exam panic" from derailing my thorough study preparation. I passed!!
I am an artist in my mid-forties. I spent many years of my life in psychotherapy and self help, but could not seem to shake the perpetual emotional pain and anxiety which crippled my daily functioning. A friend shared books about Somatic Experiencing, and I realized I could not heal myself alone. I found Suzanne via the "Find a Practitioner" at www.traumahealing.com. Her gentle style immediately put me at ease and established a relationship of trust. I really appreciate how Suzanne is available for me when I am triggered. A phone call or visit to her office resets my attitude and empowers me to proceed with my day calmly. She reads me so well, picking up on subtle signs how my system is doing. Her supportive touch is tremendously healing as it enables me to discharge pent-up anxiety and stress. As our series of sessions continues, I am putting experiences in her office together with the lingo I learned while reading about S.E.; gaining a tangible sense of myself as a resilient container. Receiving her gentle visceral bodywork [an osteopathic approach that complements S.E.] is making me aware of my own internal anatomy, and awakening my inner health advocate. This year I got serious about attending regular [every 2 weeks] sessions. Rather than just soothing me and helping me to put out emotional fires, I have made significant progress in both my personal and professional life. I feel that Suzanne's help has empowered me with the confidence to meet with clients and to achieve artwork I never had the stamina for before. I feel very fortunate to have discovered her practice.

About me

Hi, I'm Suzanne! My Integrative Bodywork practice is here to support you.

With over 25 years experience, I'm helping clients move from overwhelm toward health.

Building on what's already working well in your own physiology, I use manual therapy, massage, and Somatic Experiencing to nudge your system back into balance.

My work can help you feel comfortable. Beyond relief of symptoms, you'll get in touch with what's most important to you.

Yes! Because when your body feels better, your mind benefits too.

So you can begin feeling like yourself again, connecting with people, and enjoying more of what you love!

You'll find the encouragement you need right here.

We're in the Claremont Village, by appointment Monday through Friday.

I started seeing Suzanne for fibromyalgia relief. Her experience and techniques have been very helpful in reducing the muscle aches. I was surprised at one session where something in my hip released. From that time several months ago, to the present, my low level depression, what I called my “Eeyore -ness,” has vanished.
Tuesday's session was highly effective on relaxing my clenched jaw muscles and I noted a release in my neck as well. I also was not sore the next day. I am still aware of having a space between my upper and lower teeth even now several days later. What a great feeling! Thanks much!
First time it's been this quiet in 7 years! With my history of lots of athletic injuries and concussions, I've struggled with sleep, tinnitis and pain forever. Sleep improved right away -- Suzanne's tips changed up my pre-sleep routine. After my third session, where we explored unwinding neck pain, I still had ringing but it was like a 0.5/10. Went back up but now is down to a 2. I hope to continue studying next term!
