She has post-graduate training in Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy for mood and anxiety issues at the Beck Institute for Cognitive Behavior Therapy in Pennsylvania and is a proponent of Positive Psychology, which concentrates on helping people flourish instead of focusing on mental illnesses. Sue is also a Clinical Fellow of the American Association for Marriage and Family Therapy and a Gottman Institute Seven Principles Program Leader. Sue practices mindfulness meditation and loves to cycle, run, and create art.
