What do you really want?

  • Are you going through a difficult transition and feel uncertain about what to do next?
  • Do you need clarity around a health challenge  so you can restore your natural health and well-being?
  • Does your inner critic stop you from doing what you’d really like to do?
  • Have you forgotten what it’s like to play, feel joy, and be on purpose?
  • Are you ready to fully express who you are and make a difference?


All the answers are within you! You are naturally creative and deserve to be healthy, joyful, and happy. 

It’s true, even if you don’t feel that way.

Expressive arts may be just the jump start you need, and can even help you feel better physically!  Read about research on the use of expressive arts for health issues.

“Creativity is like freedom: Once you taste it, you cannot live without it. It is a transformational force, enhancing self-esteem and self-empowerment.”  ~ Dr. Natalie Rogers Founder of Person-Centered Expressive Arts

What is Expressive Arts?

Expressive arts uses movement, sound, the visual arts, creative writing, and drama to further self-expression, insight, creativity, and higher states of consciousness. Working with expressive arts does not require being an artist (although that’s fine too)! The focus is on the process—–not the end result. This powerful work can foster emotional healing, resolve inner conflict, and reawaken your natural creativity.

  1. Hi Cherie,

    I have another program Saturday June 11th at Glen Ivy (1:30 pm) called Creating Soul Portraits which I think you would enjoy. You can go to my website for more information: http://www.SuzanTusson.com (then events). I also offer complimentary 1/2 hour phone coaching sessions. Let me know if I can support you in that way. My editor is sending me the book tomorrow for my final edits….so my book is coming along. Don’t have an exact date for completion yet though it will be in the next few months (as an E-Book) then later as a print book. I’ll keep you posted!
    Thanks for getting in touch.
    Suzan : )


  2. Hi Suzan,
    I feel so blessed to have friends, like yourself, who
    know that women are multifaceted, and often have difficulty in undersanding and identifying their life purpose. Hence the skill of a personal life coach helps to hasten the process toward self-worth and confidence.

    Your book will inspire many women to search within for their personal power and wisdom. I look forward to the completion and publishing of your book and a book signing party at my home.


  3. Dear Suzan,
    I just started reading a wonderful book; you are a living example of the author’s purpose. It is called, “Writing to Change the World” by Mary Pipher. I am in a huge life transition, sometimes I am not certain where my feet are. Your sweet story of your Aunt Birdie Mae has helped to calm me where I am restless and inspire me where I am dulled. Thank you. I look forward to reading more from you and other wise women.
