She provides psychotherapy, supervision, and clinical consultation. Suzanne teaches art therapy and co-creates community-based arts projects. The exhibition Transformation By Fire at the Gardiner won the 2013 Award of Excellence in Exhibitions—a direct reflection of Suzanne’s deep commitment to working collaboratively to address social justice issues through the arts.
