more about me:Here’s a little about me and how I got here…

I am Suzanne McColl, EMDR Psychotherapist and I work with women in leadership roles to resolve limiting beliefs, so they can feel confident and empowered to live up to their highest potential in all areas of life.


As I traversed in life through career choices and relationships, I realized a common theme that held me back; it was my limiting beliefs!  Those feelings that come up for many women, “I’m not good enough”, “not smart or interesting enough”, and “not deserving”; as it relates to establishing healthy relationships.  From a career perspective, in order to move up the ladder, I had to confront societal and cultural beliefs about being a woman and a successful leader in the business world.  After 10 years of my leadership skills not being recognized in my academic and municipal jobs, I finally took the leap and created my own path.  I founded my first company, Sound Health & Wellness, where I could exercise that leadership muscle and it’s been great.  So much so that I now run two companies where I help others conquer their limiting beliefs and follow their own dreams.  To say it was a walk in the park is misleading, but I was able to make my own transformation with the help of EMDR therapy and principles. This is why I’m such an advocate of using EMDR with others for lasting transformations.


As a Licensed Professional Counselor for the past 30 years, I have worked with many professionals to reach their highest potential.  I find myself drawn to the work with the many women who were struggling with self-doubt, Impostor Syndrome and Perfectionistic perspectives.  Helping them to transform and live more aligned lives where they get up everyday feeling confident in who they are and in their ability to  be happy and successful in their lives,brings me the most joy. Because of all the changes I witnessed in myself and my clients, I am passionate and committed to helping women take these steps and make transformational and lasting changes in their lives. EMDR works from the inside out and helps you change your story to include empowerment and satisfaction. 


In my free time, I enjoy going on long walks with my dog Charlie, swimming and biking, traveling and having thought provoking and inspiring conversations with my young adult children who I hope have fewer limiting beliefs to work on resolving. 


But I know they will have them, we all do, but getting to those core, limiting those beliefs and resolving them, allows so much more expansion in one's life.


We are all so much more than those beliefs!
