Read what other moms are saying about Susan’s life-changing Autism Mom’s Self-Care Workshop™!
During the Workshop, I felt a little tiny spark of ‘I matter!’ I could cry just thinking about it. I get caught up in ‘I have to do this, I have to do that…’ and I lose myself. Being with Susan gave me this little spark of ‘I can think differently. I can take care of myself!’ The exercises also made me ask myself, ‘What do I want? And what are the obstacles?’ Susan leads with such brilliance. She got me thinking, and then got me to believe that I could do it. I felt empowered, with a feeling of ‘I matter.’ I also realized I’m not alone, that I’m part of a group of moms who are all dealing with similar things. This group understands what I’m feeling. Because to be honest, not all moms go through what you do as a mother when your child has issues or a diagnosis. Susan is all-embracing and understanding, and she has all the experience in the world—she’s phenomenally knowledgeable. We go to the ends of the earth to support our children, don’t we? How brilliant that Susan shows us how turn it around and look at what we can do to help ourselves, to feel stronger and be so much happier. Sally Wagter, London, UK
Going into the Workshop, I really needed help with setting boundaries and saying ‘no’ to certain things so I could take care of myself better. That’s an area where I need to grow because the stronger I am, the clearer I am, the more rested and nourished I am—the more I can help my kids. Through Susan’s coaching during the Workshop, I reached my goals, and today I am saying ‘no’ to more things that are encroaching on my self-care. And it’s extending into how I take care of my kids! For example, I’m setting boundaries now on things like their diet. Before the Workshop, I was letting a lot of things slide. Erin Acevedo, Ipswich, MA
The Body Garden Exercise showed me how dry my perception of my body-life sometimes is. We Autism Moms usually bring ourselves to the point where we exhaust our bodies and minds until we get tired and weak. But I learned in Susan’s workshop that it does not have to go this way. My body, mind, and soul are also important, and the more I give to myself, the more my kids will also benefit. Thank you, Susan! Nat Garbinada, Zagreb, Croatia
Hear Susan’s story…
Let me tell you my story...
It is October 2007, and my almost-five-year-old son has just received an autism diagnosis.
I am devastated. Tortured by my fears, I lie awake nights, obsessing about my son's future, and the future of our family. I blame myself for not knowing how to help him. I judge my own child for behaviors he cannot control. Ashamed of our situation, I become isolated and lonely. Other mothers don't understand. Even my own parents don't understand. I feel overwhelmed, lost, and hopeless.[Flash forward...]
It is October 2015. My son, now 12, is recovering from autism.
How did this happen?
Over the past eight years, I followed a unique roadmap to recovery for my child, that unlocked the door holding our family back from the life we were meant to have. Now I plan to share everything I have learned—with you.
||Susan’s workshop on Brain-Boosting, Kid-Friendly Foods was informative and interesting. From soaking grains to healthy desserts - which my kids loved, by the way - Susan offered a variety of healthy recipes for parents to try. Her lecture on lifestyle changes was also full of pearls. Susan is a veritable encyclopedia of holistic information for families!|| Sophia Senderovich, New York
||Susan gave me exactly the vitamins and minerals I needed and I got rid of my virus in one day! She is very knowledgeable, and I feel very grateful to have her as a resource.|| Etel Duarte, New York
||Susan is definitely a gift in this world and so many people can benefit from her knowledge!|| Alison Giardina, Gio's Gluten Free, New Jersey
||Susan has helped me tremendously with my gut issues. For years I was bloated, thinking that it was normal to walk around like that - imagine my surprise when Susan told me it wasn't! Since taking Susan's advice and listening to her wisdom, I haven't been bloated in over 8 months. I'd recommend her to anyone!|| Dominic Kelly, South Carolina
||Susan is smart, highly knowledgable, skilled, grounded and wise. I have multiple food allergies and a history of candida and inflammation and sought Susan's help because of her unique expertise and vast experience. Whether you are an adult looking to heal your body and gut or the parent of a child— I can't recommend Susan highly enough!|| Amy McCord, Anchorage, AK
When my son was diagnosed with autism at age 5, I was in so much pain that I just disconnected from myself. I knew I had some anger, but what I didn’t realize was just how angry I was that my son had autism. Then I started hanging around with some autism moms who were...read more
Yesterday morning should have been perfect. I had it all organized, down to the minute. I planned to get a walk-in blowout right after I dropped off the kids, to get myself prepped for shooting some video. It could actually work if we were on schedule. If we could...read more

Moments like this make it all worthwhile. This morning at breakfast, my 11-year-old, Alina, said, “Mom, I had a bad dream. I dreamt that I failed my Taekwondo test on Wednesday. I felt terrible.” I replied, “Oh, that sounds so upsetting, sweetheart. Why don’t you talk...read more
