About Suzie

I was thrilled to be in the second group of Facilitators trained by Seena Frost LMFT in June of 2004.  And just 9 years later there are over 1300  of us facilitating SoulCollage® world wide.

I’ve been working with my cards for over 9 years, and use them frequently for my personal enrichment.  I also use my cards for business planning, problem solving and visioning. It seems we are only beginning to realize the power of this magnificent tool.

I’ve had a unique opportunity to offer SoulCollage® for patients in the Providence Out Patient Behavioral Health Program.  In the last 9 years have lead over 100s of SoulCollage® groups totally over 1000 face to face hours. 

My psychotherapy clients have found they not only feel better but make deeper progress and have more fun using SoulCollage®.  In addition, my 4000 plus hours of training in Somatic Experiencing®, transpersonal psychology, native American spirituality and metaphysics gives you the advantage of working with an experience and skilled Trainer, with a very wide range of knowledge to share

My teaching experience includes over 10,000 hours of psycho-educational and group therapy.  I’ve taught art workshops, international trade, college level statistics as well SoulCollage® mentioned above.

Learn more about my training, education and experience.

Perhaps the best qualification however is that after 9 years of working with my own cards, my passion for SoulCollage® deepens. I delight in offering this tool to other kindred spirits. 

I hope you will join me!

What people are saying

“I feel empowered and have a clear direction after our work together.  I would pay double for this exposure and insight. . . . you now occupy a front row seat in my internal gratitude "auditorium"  --  Thank you so much for doing this work--and making it so matter of fact, devoid of shame, and FUN.   I will see you again.”                                                                                                                                       B. K.  Full Time Mother, Portland, Oregon

“Working with you stands at the top of some of the most challenging and rewarding work I have ever done.  The way you worked with me allowed me to dive deep.   You do very good depth work without getting in the way.  This is truly a gift.  I am grateful.”

                                                              C. C., web designer and photographer, Gresham Oregon

“You did an absolutely splendid job and the SoulCollage® experience was extremely helpful to me.  My card keeps "talking" to me.  I am amazed that I thought I was making a card about woundedness and weakness and it turned out to reveal and reinforce strength that I didn't know I had.   I'm gonna sink my teeth into this process.  IT IS VERY POWERFUL! (But I'm sure you already knew that!)  Thank you again.  I doubt you know how very gifted you are.  I so deeply appreciate and admire your openness and authenticity.  You are wonderful.  And you're a very, very good teacher.  PS  That may be the best workshop I've ever been to.”     

J. S., Psychotherapist, Lake Oswego, Oregon

"Amazing!  For an East Coast Skeptic, this was amazing to help on my journey of understanding myself.  I gained an understanding of a particular problem I had."      

                                                                              L. J., NIH Researcher,  Washington DC

"It's amazing I could do this [SoulCollage] at all.  At almost 86 years old, I did not expect to become so excited about learning a new way to understand my life, past and present.” 

                                                                                                   H. D.  Beaverton, Oregon

“I trust entering a group you facilitate because I know the safe experience you will create. I'm not sure exactly how you do it, but I know that you are conscious in your intention, fully present and lead by example. You build a group where we all know we are accepted and belong - it becomes "our" group.”
