Experience, Training: Irene Oudyk-Suk

I’m married to John Suk. We have 2 sons, a daughter-in-law, 2 GRANDCHILDREN! a long term foster daughter, and a foster grand-daughter. We love our family and are totally delighted when our kids come home for a while! (But while we loved parenting, we love our empty nest even more!)

Like most everyone my personal life has been affected by major stresses and family issues. I am no stranger to the particular concerns that my client couples bring to me. Feel free to ask me more about this if you wish.

When it is sought after, my clients value my spiritual depth and insight. I’ve been shaped by a Judeo-Christian worldview. Clients from differing perspectives are pleased that I’m respectful and appreciative of their approach to life and spirituality.
