Suzanne works with service members and their long term medical case management to help them to navigate the medical systems they're dealing with and reduce the barriers to care.

Not dependent on others validation.Learn to move out of protective patterns that your brain has patterned for you to survive. You set healthy boundaries for yourself and others.You're getting better at regulating your emotions.You're more connected to your authentic self, the truth of your story & who you are. 2 Timothy 1:7
    “For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind.”

    Isaiah 41:10
    So do not fear, for I am with you;
    do not be dismayed, for I am your God.
    I will strengthen you and help you;
    I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.
