I’m Coach Susana, and I’m committed to creating a world that works better for more of us, and for more life than just humans.

I help heal what ails us through creativity, heart and insight. I do this as a Transformational Life & Leadership Coach and Trauma-Informed Resilience Practitioner. I coach unicorns, oddballs and “onlys” to greater clarity, confidence, direction, and purpose in work and life. I’m also a writer and poet.

I’m a unicorn and oddball myself, descended from a long line of oddballs! I’m both artist and scientist, and a big picture thinker with an eye for detail. In fact, my four innate superpowers – that show up even when I’ve been living alone in the forest for a week! — are insight, empathy, humor, and problem solving.

Let's Talk!


Stress & Resilience


I can help!

If you need a life or workplace coach who is candid, kind, intuitive, funny, and comfortable talking about race, class, gender, sexual orientation or spirituality, you’re in the right place. If you seek a leadership coach who brings 30 years of rich organizational and international experience, deep compassion, a sense of humor, and a diversity and equity lens, you’re in the right place.

If you’re a coach who seeks higher excellence and deeper presence with your clients, I’ll mentor and train you to be more effective and more trauma-informed.

If you want to improve your personal resilience and reduce stress with a trauma-informed, body-focused approach, look no further. And if you crave soulful, fierce poetry or provocative, frank essays about life’s challenges and how to be better at work, I’ve got you.

Whether you yearn for greater clarity and direction in work or life, decreased stress and anxiety, or a moment of creativity and relief — you’re in the right place.
