About Me

Sue Ciminelli is a marriage and family therapist specializing in therapy for adults, adolescents, children and families and maintains a private practice in Sacramento, California. With over twenty-five years of experience as a marriage and family therapist she works with a broad spectrum of clients.

Sue is an interactive and compassionate therapist. Her therapeutic approach is to provide support, help her clients develop a deeper understanding of themselves and the ways that they interact with the world, and to give practical feedback to help them effectively address personal life challenges. She appreciates her clients' strengths and encourages them to develop and utilize those strengths.

As a credentialed art therapist, Sue often uses art and play therapy when working with children, adolescents, and families. In collaboration with her clients, the use of art can provide insights that are often unavailable through talk therapy alone.
