If you are ready to create positive change in your life, you have come to the right place.
If you have been waiting for a sign, this is it.

My name is Susy and I have been through the darkness of addiction and anxiety. I am here today because I found my way back to the light. I founded The Copper Vessel to help you do the same, so that you can heal and live your happiest, healthiest, most radiant life.

My own life experience taught me that real healing is a holistic path that begins with a journey to the Self. We can take away the manifestations of our addictions, but in order to heal anxiety and dis-ease, we must choose to re-connect with the light within. 

My background includes a degree in East Asian Studies and Religious Studies from the University of Virginia as well as certifications as a Usui/Holy Fire II Reiki Master, Yoga Instructor (RYT 200 and KYT in-progress), training in Transcendental Meditation, Vipassana Meditation, Breathwork, and, of course, the Art of Sound Healing.

For years, addiction, anxiety, dis-ease, depression, an unhealthy body, and an unhappy mind were my reality. I was miserable. I couldn’t get out of my own way to makes the changes I knew I needed to get better. Through Sound Healing, Reiki, Yoga and Meditation, I was able to get and stay sober, reconnect with my authentic self, and build a healthy, happy, radiant life. With guidance and support, I believe that this is possible for you too.

At The Copper Vessel, you will find a healing experience that integrates the various modalities that helped me most on my own healing journey synthesized into a uniquely transformative experience customized just for you. I work with people who are fed up with being stuck in the same old cycles and want to get back to feeling light, whole, and embodied in their power. I help people to heal and re-open their hearts to a new understanding of self-love. I offer you tools to integrate into your daily life and create change that lasts a lifetime. The goal is to feel happy, free, and empowered to live a life that makes you feel truly fulfilled. When that happens, the anxiety/depression/dis-ease tends to disappear in a real and lasting way! 

Gandhi famously said that “Happiness is when what you think, what you say, and what you do are in harmony.” I believe that we all have the capacity to overcome the obstacles of our past and that true healing is possible when we make space to create harmony in our lives. It is my mission to offer you grounded, informed, loving, and authentic guidance toward health, happiness, and inner peace.

Your journey to healing is your own, but you do not have to walk the path alone.
Together, we can heal through harmony.

Sat Nam,

Healing Through Harmony



“Susy is other worldly, possibly of the angelic realm. Her presence, words and intentions coupled with the sounds of the crystal bowls are powerful enough to rocket you into another dimension. When I am suffering from anxiety and depression, Susy's sound baths are one of the most profound ways to relax and recalibrate my body and mind. I am in awe at the impact each session has on me and it keeps me coming back for more.”

"I experienced my first sound bath with Copper Vessel guided by Susy. It was an absolutely incredible experience and exactly what I needed that day. I was having an extremely stressful day and after settling in and beginning the relaxation journey I quickly felt relief. I then reached a level of relaxation I had never experienced. The benefits were sustained over the next few days through the rejuvenation I felt. Susy's method and guidance were unparalleled. Copper Vessel is a mind blowing experience that is a must for people new to sound baths or to someone who has had one before!"
-Evan H.

"I have taken a number of sound baths with Susy recently - and, highly recommend her as truly a leader in the art of sound meditation. Susy takes you on a relaxing, rejuvenating and spiritual journey through a guided meditation. The words and mantras Susy vocalizes stay with you long after the practice ends. Compassion, understanding, and love embody the essence of Susy's spirit. I would recommend a sound bath for anyone who wants to help alleviate pain, improve their spiritual practice, is battling an addiction or just wants to do something loving for one's self. I sing Susy's highest praises as one of her devout students. "
