About Me

Open minded and non judgmental therapist with a safe place. Experienced with alternative lifestyles, unique situations and welcoming to all individuals. I use an eclectic approach to therapy as one size does not fit all. Counseling is a place to work toward a better and more fulfilling life, where goals are attained, communication is improved and relationships are strengthened.

I have over fourteen years experience helping professionals, parents, young adults, minorities, people involved in the criminal justice system, those with substance use issues and other addictions, and individuals experiencing trauma, natural or manmade disasters and homelessness. With a particular interest in sexual dysfunction and intimate relationship problems, I will accept you as you are, with unconditional positive regard.

Together we will work as a team partnership to establish goals and the steps to help attain those dreams.

I offer messaging, live chat or live phone sessions, typically between the hours of 5pm and 11pm central time, Monday through Friday and 12pm to 5pm on Sunday. You may expect me to respond to any messages as soon as possible each day.

I really appreciate how much time Amie puts into her responses to me and helping me through hard times. She checks in with me in a way that doesn’t hover, which I appreciate. She’s the best!

Attentive and a great listener, Amie is cheerful and positive bringing wonderful feedback and helping me understand and guide me on my emotional needs and well being. We have done different types of exercises and she has also sent me some amazing articles and videos on different issues/ideas/themes circling my life during periods of time. I appreciate how flexible she is and how we can discuss and find a time together, and she puts my needs first in all situations

I have been working with Amie for a few months now and after an initial struggle to work out a regularly scheduled session time each week, we have settled in nicely and I have really appreciated her input.
Amie is a very good listener and gives me plenty of room to talk when I need to. She asks thoughtful questions that encourage me to think and dive deeper in my journey. I never feel pressured to talk, but more compelled to share since I feeling the more she knows, the better she can help me help myself.
I also never feel judged when I share what I feel could be I formation that people could find questionable. My comfort level with her is high and I appreciate her background which includes experience with some of the issues I am facing.

Amie is very compassionate with my problems and was very professional in her guidance with my issues. She has a wide range of knowledge on her field and it showed from the beginning, since she was able to comprehend my various problems in my different aspects of life. From the first session I felt heard, seen, known and understood and acknowledged and that lifted my spirits to go on with therapy.

Written by V.A. on Dec 24, 2020 after therapy with Amie for 2 weeks on issues concerning relationship issues, family conflicts, intimacy-related issues, eating disorders, sleeping disorders, and bipolar disorder

I have been suffering from bipolar disorder for more than 15 years. I have spent three weeks so far counseling with Amie. Amie really listens and encourages you to take the next steps in your own development. The worksheets she sends provoke sincere sharing and they are very instructional. At the start she recommended I join a peer support group and I did and it was really helpful. I would recommend Amie to anyone who cares about their treatment and want an attentive and responsible therapist.

Amie, brought to light my anxiety which was something I never really thought I had but I knew there was something wrong with me in a way. Only for her calm and understanding messages of support am I able to interact more positively with my husband and family members. I love the worksheets and it's something I go to read when I've time or in an anxious situation. She really is helping me overcome situations I would have reacted negative towards.
