Susan Ortolano, M.A.,PCC,CMRC

Once upon a time, Susan Ortolano was a little girl dreaming about love, weddings, white picket fences, and the handsome guy on the white horse. After years of bad relationships, a failed marriage, and devastating heartbreak, she discovered the real reason she hadn’t found true love. After much personal growth work, she finally met and is happily married to the love of her life. Her personal experiences, and a devastating illness inspired her to transition from a multiple award-winning high school teacher to a Credentialed Intuitive Relationship Coach and Educator. Susan has a B.A. from UCLA, and an M.A. in Spiritual Psychology, among other credentials and certifications.

Susan skillfully combines finely tuned clairvoyant skills with her coach training and education background to teach singles and couples how to master the art of successful relationships through private coaching and virtual classes. She also trains other coaches for two international coaching schools, and recently became a published author.

Personally, Susan admits to being an obsessed Twilight Saga fan, a sucker for a good story through her love for books, TV, and movies, and a total Facebook junkie. She loves humor, witty banter, and has a passion for helping others. She also loves to study spirituality, astrology, intuition, and is a proud Auntie and Godmother. Susan resides in Southern California with her husband Rick and truly believes that everyone deserves their own happily ever after.
