About The Coach


Sue Ann Gonis, M.A., CPCC, PCC

My Philosophy

I know that as a coach, I am truly in my sweet spot. The universe is full of surprises, and it turns out that where sweet spots are concerned, we can have more than one. For me, the proof is the work I am doing with my clients. Not only do I witness many “ah-hah” moments and watch people transform their lives, but I also get to witness people letting go of the struggle, so that they can see what is being offered in the moment.

At different times in our journeys, if we’re paying attention and we get to play the tune we’re meant to play in the perfect key of life. Everything we’ve ever done and all we’re meant to do comes together in harmony with who we are. When that happens, we feel the truest expression of ourselves.

“One of my goals is to help you discover pieces of light to reflect what’s possible, what’s hopeful and what’s best in you. And to remind you that getting to what feels right often comes from things going wrong.”

“One of my greatest lessons has been to understand that what looks like a dark patch in the quest for success is the universe pointing you in a new direction. Anything can be a miracle, a blessing, an opportunity if you choose to see it that way.”

I believe that we have the ability to design a life where we are completely fulfilled. Often we think it is dependent on outsiders and to some extent it is, but it is much more dependent on the attitude we bring to life. It comes from true growth that stems from turning challenges into opportunities and from paying attention to our values and aligning our lives accordingly.
