Hello and thank you for taking the time to review my profile. My name is Amelia and I am Licensed Professional Counselor in Colorado and a National Certified Counselor with over 25 years experience working in the field of behavioral healthcare. My specialties include; but are not limited to: depression, anxiety, trauma, relational issues, grief and loss, infertility and miscarriage, as well as life struggles related to self-esteem and family of origin. I am also comfortable with spiritual exploration and believe in the power of connecting with nature and the outdoors during times of intense suffering and pain.
My hope is that you'll experience a warm, welcoming and authentic space where you'll feel deeply witnessed and heard as we work together. I strive to embody a calm and caring presence where you'll enjoy the healing powers of humor and vulnerability. I want you to feel empowered to identify and mobilize your strengths to discover and sustain resiliency and perseverance. I believe each person's healing experience is unique and specific to them. With that in mind, I tailor care by utilizing active listening, intense validation, and strengths-based approaches. I subscribe to person-centered and eclectic modalities of therapy as we build a relationship that supports restoration and recovery. I would be honored to journey with you along your path to peace.

These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Amelia Bumgarner-Young. We don't pay anyone to provide their review and they are all made voluntarily. Some people's experience receiving therapy with BetterHelp might be different.

I’m so thankful for being connected with Amelia when I joined BetterHelp. I felt fully listened to and understood. She helped me look at things from a different angle sometimes and gave practical homework suggestions for ways to help in the healing process, which is exactly what I was asking for and needed. It helped me have a good starting place when I didn’t know where to begin and now I have more healthy tools to use when things come up in my life that are triggering or stressful.

I was wary of starting therapy and was genuinely doubtful of its benefits for me. Amelia helped me realize that it wasn't what I had built up in my head and sometimes just a friendly conversation means the world. After making sure I was comfortable talking about my issues, she allowed me to discuss them at my own pace and makes sure to listen. Thank you so much!

She really makes talking about things very easy.

Written on Mar 08, 2022 after therapy with Amelia for 3 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, addictions, relationship issues, family conflicts, trauma and abuse, intimacy-related issues, eating disorders, sleeping disorders, parenting issues, self esteem, anger management, and adhd

I found Amelia to be empathetic, insightful, and easy to talk to. She gave me concrete strategies and support for dealing with a family crisis, and her suggestions about establishing boundaries and self-care truly helped me handle my anxiety. This was a short-term therapy, but I wouldn’t hesitate to request her services again. I recommend her without hesitation.
