About Sue


As a Licensed Marriage Family Therapist, I specialize in Individual, Family, and Couples Therapy with a practice in North San Diego County. Blending my MFT and Speech- Language Pathology careers, I bring many years experience to the client-therapist relationship. My work in a variety of settings has included crisis and counseling centers, private practice, schools, and home-health. With my personal experience of a long-term marriage and raising three children, I understand that both joys and challenges are part of living a wholehearted life. My own personal therapy, Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy, and body-based mindfulness practice have influenced my work and ability to be present to my client's needs.
