PhD in sport and exercise psychology from the University of North Carolina-Greensboro
Psychological approaches that inform Sue’s practice include acceptance & commitment therapy, cognitive-behavioural therapy, and evidence-based mindfulness approaches. Sue complements her clinical work with an ongoing involvement in research and education in the optimal psychological state of flow. Sue translates an in-depth understanding of flow into practical strategies to help each individual move towards their best self. A critical skill that facilitates flow (and focus) is mindfulness, and Sue enjoys teaching interested clients mindfulness-meditation skills and strategies.
In her spare time, Sue enjoys reading, good coffee, and spending time in nature; with a particular passion for the ocean, where she likes to engage in the sport of ocean swimming.
