Testimonials

I first found out about Susan through a Stress Workshop I partook in about a year ago. I was inspired by her in this class for her demeanor and overall openness. She is an energy healer and that also spoke to me because Energy is Everything! I have had other therapists in the past whom I have appreciated working with, however, Susan is different. I very much enjoy her approach to healing through meditation practice, talk therapy, and a final chakra healing after every session. She spends time and gets to know you like a great friend. I highly recommend her to every person. If you are ready to discover your true authenticity and calling - Susan is your advocate! Thank You Susan for your time and energy.

I started with Susan looking for some assistance in dealing with my grief from my husband’s death over two years ago. I’ve had a lot of loss in my life and I was also aware of a lot of baggage that I carried from my childhood. Susan has helped me to work through issues that I was aware of and had been working on all my life, AND, issues that I wasn’t even aware of. Between her kindness, compassion, guidance, and the energy work, I am feeling so much better! I am happier, lighter, and at peace – a place I haven’t been in a very long time. She has been a tremendous help in adjusting to this new chapter of my life without my husband. I finally feel like I am moving forward again.

After just a handful of sessions with Susan, I have made more breakthroughs, uncovered more core beliefs, and gained more understanding of habits and thought patterns helping me to reclaim my power, and heal. I have found working with Susan for two months more insightful and helpful than working with a “traditional therapist” for over a year. Susan’s honest, yet gentle, intuitive approach creates an incredibly safe environment where I can feel safe and allow myself to be vulnerable. With her guidance, and reminders to stay open and use love as my compass, I am learning to heal all the parts of me that need to be healed so that I can live my most authentic, happy life. I am incredibly grateful for being led to Susan -- working with her feels like the warm blanket the little girl in me has been searching a lifetime for. Thank you Susan for your loving kindness! I will be eternally grateful!

I highly recommend Susan to anyone who is trying to sort through life's difficulties, but is struggling to do it on his/her own. I never thought of myself as someone who would be comfortable seeing a counselor, but Susan has an incredible warmth and kindness that made it easy for me to relax and open up. She is spot on when it comes to her intuitive abilities and has helped me understand both myself and those closest to me on a very deep level. Susan truly cares about her clients and has so much love to give. She takes the time to ask quality questions and gain a wholesome understanding before discussing possible resolutions. Susan was also eager to provide me with books, audios, and true stories to help me navigate through my struggles. Whether your problem is big or small, she wants to help you, and never imposes harsh judgement. I am grateful for the greater perspective and growth I've gained through working with her. Susan Duesbery is a true and gifted healer. Anyone would be lucky to work with her.

- Jackie 

I have personally sought help from Susan Duesbery and can attest that she can see through my words and physical representations to find the truth about my struggles. Her way of knowing is deeper and more relevant than any counselor I have ever met. She gave me concrete, attainable solutions that work!  She allows us to record our sessions, so I listen again and again to remember her astute revelations and her core teachings. As a creativity coach, I find that many of my clients have emotional/energetic blocks that need clearing before they can start receiving creative energy and finding their authentic voice.  I have referred several clients to her and I only hear RAVE REVIEWS!  Thank you for your warmth, kindness, and insight, Susan! As I told Susan before: she is the beautiful smooth stone that when dropped in the pond of our universe sends ripples of love everywhere. LOVE YOU, SUSAN!

Susan Duesbery is a remarkably gifted counselor and energy therapist, who is guiding me through a personal health crisis. She is exceptionally insightful, supportive and compassionate. Her strong sense of intuition and ability to read my energy field accurately set her apart from other therapists. She is able to zero in on the root causes of my problems and to help me quickly remove thought patterns that are no longer serving me. In addition, she offers sound strategies to help me release any unnecessary or harmful ideas about myself. These strategies are not difficult to do, so I can also practice them at home. Within a short time after I started seeing her, I began to feel more empowered and in control of my life. I am so thankful that I have found such an outstanding therapist in Susan. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her (and have) to anyone looking for support or guidance.

I can’t say enough wonderful things about Susan.  She came into my life at such a fitting time and her unwavering advice, support, empathy and kindness has transformed the person that I am in so many positive ways.  She has set up both a physical and vibrational environment where I feel I can be honest and true without being judged.  I feel safe and empowered to talk about the most difficult subjects, which is a rare and special thing to find in this world.  Moreover, she is so in tune with both me and those around me.  Her insight is one of the things I value most about our sessions, and it has really helped heal my relationship with both myself and my loved ones.  Not only is she truly so intuitive, but her work is obviously meaningful to her in ways that transcend a “job.”  She has reliably been there for me so many times that go above and beyond what is expected of her, which makes me feel loved and valued as a human on a sometimes very difficult (but also beautiful and joyful) journey.  Overall, Susan has helped me to become more MYSELF, which is the most genuinely freeing and delightful feeling that I wish for every person on this earth.  If you are considering a session with Susan, my guess is that it is for a (good) reason and I encourage you to go for it.  I don’t doubt for a second that she will illuminate so much and help you on your own journey to whatever wonderful places await you.

From outward appearances I had it all but I knew something was missing in my life and I couldn’t figure out what. I had a meditation and yoga practice, a good marriage, happy and healthy children and a fulfilling job but again, something was missing. Through my work with Susan not only have I figured out what was “missing” but have gained insight into why I am who I am. Talking with Susan is like having a conversation with a dear old friend. The tools and knowledge I have gained from Susan have improved every aspect of my life. It is obvious that Susan loves what she does and everything she does comes directly from her heart. 

– Lori 

Susan's intuition, deep insight and vast knowledge have allowed me to get "unstuck" so I can continue to move forward with more clarity and to work deeper to uncover and heal limiting core beliefs.  She has been a gentle, compassionate, wise, honest and bold healing Presence in my life.  I have deep gratitude for Susan and the impact she's had on my life over the years.  It's clear to me that to be able to be present for others in this capacity, she's done her own work and can get in the trenches with those that are ready to heal and move forward in a new and empowered way.  I highly recommend working with Susan.

Susan is very compassionate. You can truly feel her warmth and light. When working with Susan I always feel comfortable to say what I am really feeling knowing I will not be judged. She has helped me understand the value of self love. I had never been to an intuitive counselor before and was amazed at what she could see without me telling her. I always leave her office feeling lighter and more clear about my path.

- Jen 

I first met Susan at a workshop at the Dominican Center at Marywood. Her calm presence and compassion were immediately evident. I have been working with her as an intuitive counselor for almost a year and have benefited from her wisdom and insight. Through addressing core stories learned from past experiences, we have journeyed together toward healing and whole mind and body wellness.

- Ginger 

I was referred to Susan, by a dear friend, about 2 years ago.  I couldn’t be more thankful for the connection. Susan has changed my life in so many positive ways through intuitive counseling, guided imagery, energy therapy, and yoga practices.  Each session brings a new sense of balance and understanding to my life. I have grown so much with her guidance and have found a new peace within myself.  Her energy is amazing to be around and she offers a safe space to be yourself!

Before I met with Susan for an intuitive counseling and energy therapy session, I had no idea what to expect. I decided to do it primarily because she is a wonderful yoga instructor. The timing seemed right as it’s been a year of profound change for me, first losing my husband and now planning to retire. During the process, the insights Susan shared resonated deeply with me. Almost immediately, I felt a shift on every level—physical, emotional and spiritual—as if I had come into focus after being “blurry” for years. I have gained a quiet trust in my own intuition and am much more comfortable in speaking my truth. The sore throat that has plagued me on and off for a very long time—and which I thought was either a digestive or sinus problem—has disappeared. Best of all, I once again have access to a huge part of my personality—everything that makes me a woman—that had been totally closed off for a decade or more. I feel energized and powerfully creative—and sexy! 

– Jan 

Susan is a conversational wizard and has been a great human to work with. She is helping me explore my grief, anger, energy, and strengths to move toward healing and finding balance in my life. It is hard work, but has been a wonderful learning experience.

- Kayla 

Working with Susan was very affirming and helpful to me. It revealed certain areas in my life that I needed to pay more attention to, and how they were affecting me. So often our response to difficult situations is, “I can muscle through this” or, “it’s not that big of a deal”, while not really understanding how this mindset can undermine our personal well-being in the long run. The energy work brought this to the forefront for me, so that I could work on being more conscious of these patterns, and hopefully choose better responses. It’s a work in progress, but working with Susan was a catalyst for growth. 

– Hillary 

I was blessed to have worked with Susan at a time in my life when I was seeking clarity on so many levels. Her ability to accurately read, feel and explain my energy with such unmistaken precision was truly right on and life changing. The awareness and awakening to this practice was very empowering and her ability to bring clarity and cleansing was amazing.

– MaryJoe

Susan Duesbery has discovered beautiful and authentic ways to impart wisdom that strengthens our resolve to continue  on our own journey. She exemplifies authenticity and people gravitate to her because of this.  Susan stirs the goodness within us and gently provides us with knowledge that help develop our own practices. Her facilitated experiences guide us on our path to find the source of where all good originates.  We are blessed to know Susan, thankful for her gifts, and are transformed by her approach. 

- Margarita Solis-Deal, Director of Dominican Center at Marywood.

After the retreat, I feel calmer and feel that I can work on my inner self and be able to make progress by making small changes in place of not being enough and trying to force big changes that I am unable to sustain all at once. The content was perfect for me.  I am so glad I came. I was so grateful that I had so much free time to allow what we learned and discussed to sink in.  I tend to take in too much at one time and then it just sits there. I enjoyed Susan’s style, very soft, yet inspiring.  I found her to be knowledgeable, encouraging and kind. I would highly recommend this retreat to anyone that wants to grow from the inside out. 

– Teresa

I thought the weekend was fantastic – exactly what I needed! Time for fellowship, thinking, examining personal beliefs, personal growth, time for good food, rest and retreat. It really was a perfect balance for me as a platform to offer myself self-compassion and work through some issues in my life and beliefs about myself and being enough. The Inn was marvelous! Susan was open, gentle, thoughtful, supportive, welcoming, honest, creative, and helpful.

- Aimee

I participated in one of Susan's guided imagery workshops a few years ago.  Susan is a beloved yoga teacher who shared her own vulnerability which helped me to trust her quickly. Her gentle, kind spirit and authentic willingness to help others heal drew me to the experience. She created a safe environment for people to work on whatever issues they might not even know consciously. Through her skill in guided imagery, and her angelic-like voice I connected gently with hurts that needed healing. I remember tears trickling softly down my face as we ended but feeling more whole, more integrated in body and soul than I had for a very long time. She is a gifted healer in many modalities, this is but one. 

-Cindy Beele-Bates

Susan's lunch and learn presentation, "Letting Go of Stress" combined just the right mix of life experience, self awareness, science, humor, and meditation practice. After speaking about the effects stress has on our bodies, Susan taught attendees several meditation techniques, which we practiced during the lunch and learn session. After meditating, I went on to have one of the most positive and productive afternoons I've had in a long time!

- Sandra Mitchell, Marketing Manager, Bizz Stream

Susan's presentation to our law firm staff on managing stress successfully was very practical, experiential and well-received. Just what we needed for a shot in the arm to help all of us to remember how to relax throughout the course of a full work day.

- Brian Pachta, Plachta, Murphy & Associates, P.C. 

Susan presented a program to the Grand Rapids Dental Hygienists’ Society a few years back entitled, “Letting Go of Your Stress and Helping Your Patients Manage Pain”. She did an amazing job teaching us various techniques such as; guided imagery and yogic breathing. The seminar was a rewarding experience. I personally have attended several of Susan’s other wellness programs and have recommended them to my friends and colleagues. Susan has a gift and I am thrilled she is willing to share. 

- Cheryl Bentley, Michigan Dental Hygiene Association 

Susan was a speaker at our Gastroenterology Nursing conference. Her insight on mindfulness and and how it can positively affect our every day life was valuable for us nurses both as self care, and to share with our patients. Susan guided us through a short meditation/mindfulness practice. I use this teaching to help my anxious patients through a stressful procedure. Thank you so much!!
