The New England Consortium on Deafblindness (NEC) has different consultants serving families for each of our five states. Sue Hollis works with children and families in the New Hampshire region!

A little about Sue’s background.

Sue holds a LICSW and is a social worker with over 30 years of Clinical Experience in an out- patient setting. Her practice has a focus on individuals with chronic health conditions, such as depression, anxiety, and addictions. She also work with families and caregivers of individuals with chronic health problems, dementia, addictions, mental-illness and developmental/intellectual challenges.

She is the mother of two beautiful children who have intellectual challenges, are medically fragile and are deaf blind. This gives her the insight and expertise to understand the challenges and stressors that are associated with being a caregiver or family experiencing their own emotional and day to day challenges. She uses the skills she has learned for her own family in her practice, skills that she feels are an important facet in the ability to work as a Family Specialist and understand the demands and emotions placed on families and care-givers. NEC is proud to have Sue on our team!

Sue also wrote a blog post on Self Care during the Holiday Season. Be sure to read it and subscribe to our newsletter to keep up with Sue and all our other consultants.
