Sue L. Hritz, M.Ed., RN, LPC, PHN, CHT

I am a Public Health RN and professional counselor with 20+ years of experience in field of nursing and counseling and nearly 10 years in academia. I worked in OB/GYN/Nursery/NICU/Med-Surgical units, and as a Discharge Planner in a CA hospital, but for 15 years worked in the home care field as a case manager in a variety of teams and as a team leader. I have always had interests in mental/behavioral health and natural ways to promote health and wellness overall.

My journey with integrative health practices began with my first class at SFSU in holistic nursing where I was introduced to various world complementary health practices. I developed a course in 2009 that has enabled me to share my expertise and knowledge of over 30 years of practicing Complementary Integrative Health Practices with students.
