My name is Susy and I founded The Copper Vessel to help others heal and live their happiest, healthiest, most radiant life. My own life experience has 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 addiction, but in order to relieve our 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 training in Transcendental Meditation, Vipassana Meditation, Usui/Holy Fire II Reiki, Breathwork, Yoga, and 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. Today, I live in a completely different reality. I am happy, healthy, radiant, and free*!
*most of the time... I am still human!
The Copper Vessel is a healing service that integrates the modalities that helped me most on my own healing journey. I work with individuals and groups alike to share these tools and facilitate rediscovery of the inner peace, happiness, health, harmony and light that exists within us all.
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.

The Copper Vessel
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!"
"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. "
