Sue Knight Deutsch
Sue Knight Deutsch is an inspirational speaker, workshop facilitator, ICF certified coach, cantor, and author of “The Healing Hand: 5 discussions to have with the dying who are living”. Originally trained as a psychiatric social worker, she later studied music, was ordained and trained in hospice care. Sue served for sixteen years as the spiritual leader and chaplain of an assisted living facility, where she counseled those who were at the end of life, and their families, and supported those families after loss. She married Michael in 1977. Despite having three children, she had four miscarriages and a stillbirth. With all her loss, professional training, and sitting at the bedside of those who were dying, it was the experience of losing her husband to cancer in 2009 that deepened her calling. Sue teaches workshops on how to be present for those who are ill, as well as grief and transformation workshops. In addition, she serves clients in her coaching practice to move toward joy.
