Susan Hough, a born healer, has been living her gift for over 35 years. She began her journey on the East Coast working with teens and families. After losing her mother, being diagnosed with breast cancer and suffering through a divorce Susan’s life began to shift. Experiencing so many challenges, Hough rededicated herself to turn them into rites of passage to deepen her journey in healing.
Studying the teachings of Sobonfu Somé, Susan felt her life shifting in a new and profound way. After reading Sobonfu’s book The Spirit of Intimacy several times, she knew they had to meet. When she met Sobonfu, they connected on a deep spiritual level and their lives became intertwined almost immediately. For 18 years, Sobonfu mentored Hough in the practice of traditional African rituals. Through these rituals, Susan was able to expand the role Spirit played in her life. She vowed to share this wisdom; creating Living Your Gifts.
As a result of sharing adventures and experiences with Sobonfu, Hough wrote,Walking With Sobonfu.
Susan has the rare perspective of having a background in traditional counseling, studying indigenous healing methods, and training as a life coach. With her diversity of education and experience, she combined her teachings to develop a coaching practice that honors spirit while integrating tradition. Susan’s approach to Spiritual Counseling focuses on living your gifts and enabling you to share them with the world. She makes it clear that to grow, we all need to bring our authentic self forward even when it’s difficult.
