Susan Cook – Coaching to connection


You need to hear yourself talking.
You need to be heard
or have support to feel, think, understand, or know for sure.


You need help sorting out pieces of your life that need to be put together in a different way or have a missing piece added.


You need your inner fire lit again to face the things you find difficult to accept or do.

As I listen and stoke your fire, I will guide you through a process that allows you to navigate yourself through your transitions.

Susan Cook Personal Coaching in Oregon, US

I have been listening, supporting, and “stoking “ as consultant, coach, and counseling therapist since I was 22 years old having completed a 2-year Master of Counseling degree. 

Since then, I have accumulated a lifetime of experience facilitating people in a variety of settings: initially, working in private counseling practice, running women’s empowerment groups, and then as a consultant in public schools, helping teachers unleash their creativity in supporting their students to become more self-aware and empowered learners.

Additionally, I have spent years working with sales and educational businesses; training and coaching teams of people to stay motivated and learn the interpersonal tools to help them serve others more effectively. 

Now, at Coaching to Connection, I facilitate workshops for empowering women as well as mid-life transition & retirement workshops with coach Sandrina Weller.

My main craft, and special gift, is tapping into my clients’ underlying needs and unseen narrative that needs to be brought to light. This is like chipping away at a rock to find the gem within that we all possess and deserve to reveal in order to live empowered and authentic lives. And, this only occurs when there is sufficient mental and emotional safety for undertaking this experience.

I am passionate about being with people through the sometimes challenging, murky, or lonely times that require someone to bear witness and lend a seasoned hand. I want to join you there.

I would love to guide you to yourself in your personal place of power. Although this can be a challenging process of awakening, the transitions are as easy as taking one small step at a time.

Together, let's discover and add more of whatever is needed for enriching your life!
