Your Mentor While Recovering from Injury & Surgery



Isn’t it all a bit overwhelming sometimes?

  • Getting to and from appointments
  • Following doctor’s orders
  • Learning new ways to get through your day
  • Wondering, will I ever be back to normal?
  • Worrying about what comes next
  • Feeling like recovery is taking forever
  • Getting stuck in the healing process


When recovering from an injury, surgery, or both, there may be times when you need a fresh perspective and, perhaps, some extra encouragement along the way. That’s when you need the support of someone who really understands, and maybe a guiding nudge in the right direction.  It also helps to have some specific effective wellness strategies.


I want you to know that if you’re facing an upcoming surgery, recovering from an injury or illness, tired of feeling like your life has been on “pause,” or struggling with the emotional leftovers from one or more losses…

I’ve been there!  I’ve been an injury/surgery patient and have struggled with all the emotions that go along with that.  I work primarily with people who have been sidelined by an unexpected life transition such as an accidental injury, surgery, or acute illness – people who are in the midst of a season of healing and recovery.


Usually people recover quickly and life goes on. Other times, however, it takes months or even years of dealing with physical and emotional pain, limitations, doctor appointments, depending on others, and just plain wondering if things will ever be back to normal. Your support system – most often friends and family – are geared up and ready to help (at least for a while), but if the recovery process seems to drag on longer than a few months that support system tends to wear out, break down, or give up.


Countless hours of researching the psychological effects of injury have shown me that there are many powerful effects on the mind, body, and spirit when a person suffers such a sudden and unwanted life change. And, I know about this personally because I’ve had several surgeries following a serious injury, and have experienced the emotional and physical effects caused by a complicated healing process.


Through formal education, wellness and grief coach training, and personal study I’ve also learned many techniques, tools, and tips that can make the injury & surgery recovery process much less frustrating, give you the encouragement you need to keep going, and may even improve your sense of well-being in the process.  I want to share these gems with you so you can have your best possible recovery experience.  I have good news…

Clients are Saying…

"Sue was tremendously helpful for me in recovering emotionally from injury. A lifelong athlete, I felt devastated after a knee injury which prevented me from participating in my favorite activities. Sue helped me identify the deeper issues behind this loss, which was critical for my being able to address them and begin the emotional healing process. Sue is an excellent listener and was able to gently guide and encourage me along this path."
-K.S., Private Coaching Client

"Doing meditation and breathing and thinking through the end result was extremely helpful. It put me at ease and I was able to sleep through the night before and relax before I went into the operating room."
