About me

Hello! I am a Clinical Social Worker (LISW-S) in Ohio that has worked in the field for 15 years supporting people who are facing crisis and stressful life events. In addition to obtaining a Master of Social Work in 2008, I have certificates in Domestic Violence Counseling, Child Abuse and Recovery, Specialized Mental Health (working with persons with severe mental illness) & Equine Assisted Psychotherapy. I often treat anxiety and depression caused by trauma, relationship problems, and work/life stressors. I work with my clients to create an open and safe environment where thoughts and feelings can be shared without fear of judgment. Taking the first step to sign up for therapy can take courage and I am proud of you for getting started!

These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Ami Wallace-Benning. 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.

Ami does a fantastic job at listening to a lot of information and then summarizing the key important pieces and feeding it back in a way that helps me digest and process it. She offers a supportive and welcoming environment for me to work on my issues. Thank you for your help Ami!
