What Hosts are Saying
Kind words and praise.
Susan is Amazing
I am so glad that we scheduled a private group class with you. It was well worth the travel. You are so patient, so passionate, and so knowledgeable! The class far exceeded our expectations. The girls and I look forward to practicing and will keep you posted of our progress. I highly recommend this course if you want to learn how to use your intuition to connect with animals. If you have any doubt about what you can accomplish from this class, don’t. Susan is amazing! A very big THANK YOU!!!Mia L.
Susan has been giving readings and workshops at our Center for several years now and we have received wonderful feedback from both clients and students. She shares her knowledge and insights with love and compassion and is a delight to be around. Several students from her Animal Communications class still comment on how wonderful the course was every time they come by the Center. Susan has become a member of our Center’s family and we look forward to continuing to work with her for many years to come.Yvette McGuire
