In addition to my Counseling and Psychotherapy practice; Sue Waldman facilitates inspirational workshops with the emphasis on Transformation!
With transformation as the emphasis of my work, I have designed a
number of successful personal and professional programs that assist
clients and organizations in transition. I provide consultative expertise
to various types of businesses needing to develop their professional
practices. I have been hired by companies such as the Department of
Tourism to help counsel and coach employees who were being downsized from their employment. I enjoy being a source of inspiration and hope at these very delicate times of our lives. I have worked as a Business Mentor Coach for iPEC, (Institute for Professional Excellence in Coaching) where I have trained and mentored newly certified coaches and guided them to utilizing effective start-up business-building techniques. I help small business owners, entrepreneurs, private practitioners to build their businesses, obtain clients and customers and increase their
referral resources through The Women's Meetup, Wellness Networking Group, Mastermind Circles, Meetups and my Living, Loving & Learning series .
Some of the courses that I have designed and executed are:
Living, Loving and Learning, New Beginnings, Sweet Inspiration!, Awaken the Goddess Within, Loving the Life You Live!, Excuse Me - Your Life Is Waiting, Leap Forward, Reinvent Your Life from the Inside Out, The Law of Attraction Teleclass, Awaken Your Potential, Live the Life of Your Dreams, The New You - Look & Feel Fabulous! , Love ~ Being A Woman, Journaling to Self-Discovery, Transitions, Possibilities, Choices, Inspired Living, 'Relax in Verona, Motherless Daughters, and Fatherless Daughters.
I have conducted (2) Rest & Relax ~ Sun & Sea Retreats for Women during the summer of 2008 and 2018 at Barnegat Light, New Jersey.
For my colleagues in counseling and coaching, like the NJ Counseling Association, I developed and conducted Awaken Your Potential motivational lecture. In my role as an educator, I have the distinction of being an Adjunct Professor of psychology and counseling for five universities: Montclair State University, Fairleigh Dickinson University, William Paterson University, Bloomfield College and Berkley College in New Jersey.
In 2004, I founded the Wellness Networking Group. This organization is a community of healing industry professionals who serve humanity through their professional work. I conceived of the idea to promote a spirit of cooperation vs. competition in the health and wellness industry as a way of uniting professionals around a cooperative, supportive community dynamic. I have hosted over 100 workshops for the local community. I passionately enjoy the process of hiring speakers, co-creating workshops and organizing meetings. Throughout the year, I host numerous personal growth workshops facilitated by local practitioners as well as myself.
The Wellness Networking Group has provided a win-win environment for members, speakers and attendees to cross-promote their businesses, share resources, provide referrals and uplift the professional community in an inspirational way. As a result helping 100's of entrepreneurs, I created my own PR and Networking company up until 2015. I helped business owners with marketing material, branding, promoting, advertising and networking. I invest all of my efforts into helping you create, grow and execute your own business.
In 2018, I founded Pink Light, LLC, a worldwide online Psychotherapy and Life Coaching business to help those who can not make it to the office. Professional counseling and coaching that is convenient to your schedule via Telephone, Zoom or Skype and via private messaging. I conduct a online support sisterhood, called the Suzanne Rose Sisterhood to help provide guidance, inspiration and support for Women on the spiritual path.
I incorporate my career as a psychotherapist with empowerment coaching to truly make a difference in my client's lives. I have created a variety of groups, workshops, networking meetings, tele-seminars, retreats and other programs that guide individuals and professional groups with increasing their success potential through counseling and coaching. I support my clients to connect with their higher self to achieve their set-forth goals. Using alternative methods such as: biblio-therapy, journal writing, guided imagery, meditation, art, sacred ritual, nutrition, herbs, exercise and energy healing ~ I draw upon the wisdom of all my professional disciplines. I believe my greatest talent is my fresh approach to solutions that combines traditional methodology with insight, intuition and innovation. I try to help my clients in a caring, holistic way ~ sometimes collaborating with other healing practitioners and using complimentary modalities, such as, yoga, meditation, naturopathic medicine, chiropractic services, acupuncture and massage, aromatherapy and energy healing/reiki and prayer.
My passion is guiding my clients to take care of themselves. I help Women to connect with their divine feminine energy ~ receptivity, softness, and love and help them integrate it with their masculine energy of action. I enjoy working with Men who are on a spiritual path and help them access and connect with spirited heart living. I try to help both men and women see that their vulnerability is their greatest strength in order to live an authentic, value aligned life.
I specialize in working with individuals and couples who are experiencing relationship problems as well as those who are coping with break-ups, separation and divorce prevention or recovery. My clinical focus is on Life Transitions, grief and overcoming depression, anxiety, self- esteem issues and loss (death, loss of job - health - home/office - romantic relationship, etc). I also provide stress management coaching, Meditation classes and Reiki/Energy Healing.
My primary interest is your well being. You are valued as my priority. I am punctual, reliable and dependable in order for you to feel safe and secure to express yourself and grow.
My goal for you is to become peacefully happy from within - to realize your unlimited potential, to increase your ability to function harmoniously in the world, to improve the quality of all your relationships, and to do what YOU want to do when you tune into your innermost sense of self and purpose. My philosophy is that every obstacle is an opportunity to grow and learn. There are simply no mistakes in life. Together, we work to help you: discover your life path, find greater meaning and purpose, live
pro-actively, based on choices you make consciously rather than reactively, and gain greater understanding of yourself in relation to the world and your place in it. Techniques are co-created and evolve from your needs, strengths and interests.
Utilizing the most effective aspects of counseling, coaching, consulting, and mentoring, I form a powerful alliance with clients to help them focus on what they want in their personal and professional lives. I believe every individual has the answers within and it is my task to help them access their wisdom through a variety of empowering techniques. My style is gentle, empathic and motivating. I care deeply for people, my work and my life. I try very hard to "walk my talk" and live an authentic life. Many clients report feeling inspired after sessions with a positive attitude. I establish a professional, supportive relationship where a client can be himself/herself, say what s/he feels, fantasizes, fears, aspires to. My strength is my genuineness - my ability to develop deep a caring, trusting relationship.
My greatest gift is my ability to listen without judgment.
I guide clients to find their own inner resources and passions in order to achieve maximum potential. Together, we examine self-defeating thoughts, transcend self-destructive behaviors, learn new ways to manage disruptive feelings and work on discovering joy & intimacy in life. Most importantly, I coach and counsel clients to better self-awareness, personal fulfillment, and self-worth. Ultimately, our work together will help you love who you are and the life you are living. You will feel free and happy you are alive.
I believe the power of love overrules everything. It resides within all of us.
The more we connect to this love, the more balanced and powerful we will be and, subsequently, the more abundant our lives will be. I believe, each and every day is a new beginning and
"Anything is Possible!"
