Introduction: I have lovingly & joyfully collaborated with people to change their lives, since 1987. My greatest strength is in quickly forming strong alliances with people, to help them change thoughts and behaviors which are keeping them from being healthy in body, mind, or spirit. I have worked in homeless shelters, treatment centers, schools, group homes, hospitals, offices, and the homes of many families. I believe the most radical thing we can do is take exquisite care of ourselves. I genuinely believe in meeting people where they are and that includes financially. I have a truly sliding scale practice and will negotiate my fee based on what you feel you can comfortably afford. I believe that liberation comes from the relationships we form with people. ​I have a Master's in Counseling Psychology & Drama Therapy from California Institute of Integral Studies, where I have also taught in the Community Mental Health program. I have a deep understanding of the harmful effects of trauma and am passionate about the liberation of all humanity.

Trinidad E.

Sue was our family therapist. We can’t speak of her highly enough. She is patient, compassionate, creative, honest, and professional. She supported my son when he was going through a difficult time in life and, in turn, helped me as well. We would not be as whole as we are now without her services. I can’t recommend her enough!
Sue Ferrer's reply
I am so grateful for your review of my services, Trinidad! Thank you for letting other families know that I'm trustworthy.

Sue is a positive, genuine, intuitive and empathetic soul. Her enthusiasm is infectious. She has a beautiful way of helping one navigate through challenges and moving them into a more calm, peaceful and hopeful space. Sue is a great listener and is very supportive. She believes in your ability to thrive regardless of your circumstances. She will help nurture parts of you that you didn’t think needed them. She offers different perspectives and resources to get you to where you want to be. I highly recommend Sue for her coaching services. She is a gem and has made a big difference in my life!

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    I have a truly sliding scale practice. I ask people what they can comfortably afford to pay. I tell people whether or not I can afford to be paid that amount. So far, I haven't had to turn anyone away for lack of funds.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    First, I like to get to know you. Then, I like to get to know what you are wanting coaching to address. If I believe I can help you collaboratively to improve your situation, I will invite you to another session.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I have an MA in Counseling Psychology with an emphasis in Drama Therapy from California Institute of Integral Studies. I have additional training in Motivational Interviewing, Crisis Intervention, and Marriage & Family Counseling.
