"The revelations Susan helped me uncover have been completely life changing. In her most gentle way, she helped me realize I have been a victim, and that I did not need to be. I now feel I can approach my work in a more empowered, level-headed way. This has totally boosted my confidence. I’m very excited about the opportunities that have started to appear because of this self assurance I now possess."
