Support for Individuals
Working with me as your Coach
Are you a woman over 50 approaching the big “what now?”
Is something calling you ~ maybe in whispers, maybe in a loud voice ~ to experiment with a whole new path as you complete the old?
Do you long for a trusted partner with expertise in women’s transitions to help you navigate your next steps?
Does a coach who blends business expertise, personal/spiritual development, and women’s issues feel like a right fit?
If you answered yes to these questions, I’m here to support you as a coaching partner.
Feeling the shift of life’s tectonic plates is an uncomfortable place to be. It’s also a prelude to the next stage; promising for what’s to come. I know; I was there in my late 50s, daunted by the question “what now?” as I completed a career I loved.
Fortunately, there are universal tools and truths available to help you find your way. My interviews with 100+ women from all walks of life unveiled the most important ones.
My role as a coach is to help you hear what you’re done with and from there, what you want to create. I help you paint an exploratory picture using a process I developed of Possibility Scenarios. From there we compose next steps and a plan for my support.
“You have an amazing gift of being a catalyst. I found myself saying things in our coaching sessions that brought new joy to me in the work I’m doing. You are gifted in allowing a person to open up and share their story. Thank you for your warmth and being an amazing mirror of reflection so I could discover what I want and begin walking that way.”

“I am blown away by what the Possibility Scenarios did for me. Your process is profound, Sue. I am clear what I don’t want anymore. The sessions were deceptively simple … how you brought me into it was perfect. I can see a way forward now. It’s lit up. I’m so inspired.”
“In all honesty, I felt like canceling the initial career/life review session as reviewing my life brought up some difficult feelings and even some shame. However, you made the process like redemption. I appreciate the elegance with which you conducted it. I am so very grateful I did it for all the possibilities your coaching has opened.”

MOST REQUESTED! 6-Month Coaching Intensive for Women over 50 Ready for Change
The Coaching Intensive is a 6-month or 12-month program with a blend of structure and customization. Based on what Sue learned in her research about women over 50 in transition, we start with a timeline review using a visual exercise Sue provides. This anchors us with where you’ve been and what you’ve done, allowing highlights and discoveries about what you’re done with and the unique through-lines of who you are. With an unrushed exploratory emphasis, Sue invites what’s emerging in your intuition and imagination for a creative, happy, full and balanced next phase. This may include beginning to flesh out a business idea with details. It may include something far more spacious, such as disengaging from structure for awhile and using the time purposefully for self-development, experimentation, spiritual growth. Sue uses a blend of coaching dialogues, writing prompts, nature assignments, and a proprietary and powerful Possibility Scenarios exercise. Once you feel delighted with your path/intentions/plan, we book regular support (and for some women: accountability) calls. Get pricing and an outline of the Coaching Intensive by simply emailing email@example.com with Coaching Intensive Details in the subject line.
1:1 Retreat with Sue
I love doing these one-with-one Retreats with women! We follow the same arc of group Retreats which normally take place over 5 days (in person) or 2 weeks (virtually) to deliver an immediate outcome. This intimate Retreat is designed to help you get through and out of the “wilderness” — a specific phase I researched that women go through when over 50 and reaching an unmistakable urge for change OR a disorienting period when a career or path feel complete but the way forward looks blank or paralyzing. Sue guides a three-part arc of activities with time in between for reflection, writing, visioning, and meditation/prayer. The 1:1 Retreat with Sue is virtual (Zoom) and timed around our schedules with a maximum timeframe of one month from start to celebration.
Coaching Tune-Ups: Post-Coaching Intensive or Post-Retreat
I am always here for clients with whom I’ve worked intimately. In fact, it’s my greatest joy to be with clients before, during, and after the personal/professional transitions we’ve worked on together. Continued support (and accountability for those who like the concept!) is an important part of sustaining the changes you’ve made. I want to make it as easy and accessible for clients to have that from me. Let Summer know what best serves you ~ from one tune-up session to a six session package. You are prioritized in my schedule, and discounted coaching fees are part of this offering.
