LCSW - Clinical Director

During more than twenty years working with families, Sue has held positions as an outreach worker, program director, and executive director in therapeutic programs, including a child-abuse shelter and a women’s substance-abuse program.  In 2005, Sue began her work in residential treatment where she has specialized in supporting victims of trauma and abuse.

“Eva Carlston provides a powerful sense of safety for our girls while still exposing them to rich cultural, social, and learning opportunities.  It’s amazing to be a part of helping these girls not only heal, but discover a sense of passion and purpose.”

Sue’s education includes a bachelor’s degree in family and human studies, a master’s degree in social work, and clinical licensure.   Sue enjoys the wide range of cultural and outdoor activities that the Wasatch Front has to offer. One of her favorite hobbies is bird watching in the many natural habitats and migratory paths of Utah; another favorite hobby is chocolate.  “Anyone who gets to know me learns that I am a highly accomplished chocolate connoisseur!”
