Welcome to Take Flight!

Thank you for visiting my site.

      Embrace Change.

           Show up and Be Seen.

                     Speak up and Feel Heard.

                           Listen to Your Body’s Wisdom.

                                      Recharge Your Energy.

                              Become Your own  Advocate.

                           HEAL, Be Well, and Take Flight!


Are you a woman 50+ who would like to improve your health and overall well-being? Would you like to play more, stress less, and feel more at peace?

If you are ready to come out of your “cocoon” and take flight; I am happy to guide you through the process. By learning to listen to your body, you can  discover the core of what you need to heal. You also become your own advocate by speaking up and feeling heard in your key relationships. Like the butterfly you show your true colors, and be seen for who you really are.

My passion is to help you gain another level of inner-resourcefulness through working with me. Practice daily self-care as a way of life and re-energize. Our bodies are all we have to express our lives through. We need to take exceptional care of them so we can live well. Our lives are at stake and the quality in which we live – matters!

I’m here for you.  Let me know how I can help. I’d be honored to partner with you on your healing journey.

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

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




  1. 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.


  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. 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.


  4. 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.



    • You are so welcome Shari. I look forward to sharing my blog entries with you. “A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.” Chinese Proverb
      Keep on stepping – you are on your way!


  5. Hi Susan,
    I was so happy when Lindsey “found” you this morning. I remember you fondly and am glad that you have fulfilled your promise.

    We live in Austin, TX, the blue part of Texas. Your life is an inspiration.

    Plaquemines can’t catch a break. The Gulf disaster is breaking my heart. I don’t know that it will ever be the same but hope that I am wrong. Unfortunately nothing works even after Katrina.
    All my best,


    • 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 : )


  6. 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 : )
