Thank you for visiting my site.


Rediscover Your Natural Creativity

            Learn to Play Again

                    Express Yourself Fully

                           Listen to Your Body’s Wisdom

                                       Recharge Your Energy

                                                    Feel Your J O Y

Are you a woman 50+ longing to express your creativity? Could you use more laughter and play in your every day? What if you could lighten up and enjoy your life fully?

My primary focus is to help you rediscover your natural creativity and learn to play again. I also help you find your voice, increase your energy, and take charge of your well-being by learning to listen to, and honor, your own body. I work with women 50+ because as Dr. Christiane Northrup, M.D., and Author of The Wisdom of Menopause states, “The choices a woman makes now – from the quality of her relationships to the quality of her diet – either secure her health and well-being for the rest of her life, or put her future at risk.”

With a passion for helping women 50+ to become healthier and feel more alive, I wrote an eBook entitled, Women at P.L.A.Y! Peace, Love, and Acceptance of Yourself.  Learn to put your health and well-being FIRST. Click here for more information: Book

If you feel ready to make peace with your inner-critic so you can create; I’m here to support you. Like the butterfly you can fly high and feel so much lighter. You can learn to let go of your caterpillar struggle, take flight, and show your true colors. Be seen for who you truly are – a beautiful, fully expressed woman in her best half of life!



Deep listening for meaning is a wonderful gift to experience for funneling inner-wisdom. Suzan is masterful in facilitating space to do this. Loved the powerful magic drumming activity with Suzan.” BL, Coach

Suzan is kind, loving and patient. She took me through a process of discovery during our session. I was able to creatively get in touch with some emotions that I didn’t even know were there. I had a pain in my heel for weeks and during our session she helped me get in touch with the emotions around the pain in my heal through a creative process. I was amazed by how it worked and within a few days my pain had disappeared.

Thank you Suzan for you generous heart! Susie



  1. Hi Marsha,
    How great to hear from you and Lindsey. I’ve just written Lindsey a very long e-mail. Thank you for your kind words.
    Yes, the Gulf is such a sad situation – bigger in scope than I can even imagine. And none of us know the long term consequences. We can only continue to send positive energy there and pray for healing of the waters, the land, and the people.
    You live in a beautiful area. I recall Austin well – went on many camping trips there and also enjoyed water ‘adventures’ on Lake Travis when much younger. If I ever plan to be in Austin, I will let you know. And please do the same if you and/or Lindsey come out to San Diego.
    Blessings and Peace,
    Suzan : )


  2. Hello Suzan,
    I was so excited when I went into the Glen Ivy website and saw you we’re there today……but to my dissapointment even if I hopped in the car and drove like a mad women I wouldn’t make it in time to participate….UGH!! Are there any other upcoming dates you will be at anywhere in the Inland Empire or SD area? I’m in a crossroads in my life and I think the inspirations you deliver would really help me with the clarity I need to make my life more fulfilling. Also, when is your book coming out? I look forward to hearing from you….enjoy the energy you receive from the session today!

    Take care,


    • 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 : )


  3. 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.


  4. 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.


  5. Dear Suzan!!
    I absolutely love reading your blog!!
    It is very profound, meaningful, fun and very inspiring for me!!!!
    Blessings for your talent and beautiful big heart!!
    Hope to read the book soon!!
    Much love!!


    • Thank you from my heart to yours. Am glad you’ve been inspired! Love, Suzan 🙂


  6. I am so happy and grateful to have come across your blog and activities through All Things Nice’s blog. Thank you for sharing all you do, I look forward to reading you and learn more.


  7. Suzan:
    A sincere pleasure to read this and subscribe to your blog. When you step forward, you make the path a little wider for those, like me, who have a bit of trepidation. Thank you and thank you.
