Often people struggle to understand why they seem to be getting into the same relationships over and over again. As a therapist for over twenty years, I have helped people move through their doubts and fears about relationships to lead richer, more full lives.


I enjoy helping people realize their own dreams and embrace themselves fully. This process has helped expand my practice from therapy to relationship coaching, specializing in working with singles and divorced men and women.

Each of us has our own inner wisdom which coaching can help us understand and acknowledge—being our own needs in relation to others and how to best take care of ourselves. I take people from where they are to where they want to go and ultimately connect them to their own heart’s desire. I help people through a holistic mind/body and spirit framework which helps facilitate growth easily and playfully. Through this process we can create the kind of relationships we want and have always dreamed of.
My Story

I became interested in relationship coaching after my thirteen-year marriage ended, and I found myself in the dating scene—this time with two small children. It was a daunting task to begin anew and believe that I would find happiness.


Through my own inner journey, I found that when I focused on understanding my deep desires—what I wanted and needed for myself—and was open to finding my true passions and joys in life, everything else fell into place.


After I divorced, I started dancing and found that it brought me a feeling of great joy. It was good for my physical and emotional body. I was having a great time enjoying my new “singleness” when I met a great man who is now my husband. When we are centered within ourselves and enjoying life, the most amazing things happen. Often times it doesn’t look like what we thought it would—it is often much better!


As a relationship coach, I will help you embrace your own unique gifts and talents and feel confident to share these with the world. I look forward to working with you to find your own heart’s desire!

I have worked with Sue De Santo and I am so grateful for her expertise, wisdom, guidance, and encouragement. Through her Relationship Coaching Program, Sue expertly led me through exercises and discussions to explore who I was, my past relationship experience and most importantly where I wanted to go and what kind of relationship I was looking for. I feel like I have blossomed under her supervision which has allowed me to become the person I want to be and to find the healthy, enriching and satisfying relationship that I wanted and deserved. She encouraged me to partake of the “dating buffet” and I did and got great results and had a lot of fun doing it. Thank you Sue!

After participating in Sue’s three month program, I’m clearer on my relationship requirements and feel better equipped to connect deeply with others. Thought provoking exercises and her patient guidance made this experience better than other books and programs I’ve tried in the past!

I highly recommend Sue DeSanto as a compassionate and supportive relationship coach. She is intuitive, knowledgeable and effectively uses the emotional freedom techniques to clear old patterns and beliefs. She is a great thought partner to work with as you explore your relationship to dating as well as while you begin a relationship and work through the inherent uncertainties and questions that process brings up. She has a great sense of humor to bring lightness to the work. And she is generous in sharing her experiences in ways that may inform your own.

Susan is kind and compassionate and helped me get at the heart of what has been holding me back from finding the relationship I want and need. I appreciate all she’s done so far and look forward to continuing my journey with her coaching and guidance.
