Navigating grief and trauma with practical tools and resources

Welcome to the A2Z Community...

My name is Susan and I am a mother, social worker, educator and author. After my husband died suddenly, I was propelled to act, both personally and professionally, to find practical tools and resources that would help our young son and I intentionally restore, renew, and rebuild a new life. Now, I want to share what I have learned with you.

"Susan has laid the path out for us clearly, gently, and thoroughly. She introduces us to other people like us who are doing the work. And healing. It’s all here. Your job is to say yes. Every day. Many times throughout the day. Your job is to realize you’re not a victim, no matter what you’ve lived through. And with. You’re actually a co-creator. And Susan offers you the tools necessary to co-create a glorious life."
