About me

You have taken the courageous first step to feeling better! I am so grateful you are here. BetterHelp is for individuals, 18 years and older. My name is Amy Bichsel Pacheco Piña and I am a Master's Level Clinical Social Worker (LSCSW) and a Certified Advanced Grief Counseling Specialist (CAGCS).
I graduated from the University of Nebraska-Omaha in 2008 and began working in a community mental health center with individual who were struggling with an array of concerns like depression, anxiety, trauma, PTSD, adjustment, addiction, just to name a few.

My therapy approach is client centered in that I do have ideas of how we can begin to work together to help you feel better, but I meet you where you are. I strongly believe that our thoughts impact our feelings/behaviors and ultimately our actions. Sometimes it is easy to identify and sometimes these are more deeply rooted which sometimes can create symptoms and issues in areas of your life that are important to you and those you love. But don't worry, I am going to walk with you every step of the way. We will figure this out together.
I am originally from Nebraska and am a mom to a busy 9 year old and two rambunctious dogs! I enjoy reading, meditation, learning new things, and walking outdoors.

Written on Dec 01, 2022 after therapy with Amy for 7 months on issues concerning stress, anxiety, relationship issues, anger management, and bipolar disorder

I am so thankful for Amy, she gives me an unconditionally supportive listening ear through my ups and down as a college student. Since meeting with Amy my anxiety and coping mechanisms for panic attacks are in the best place they have ever been. Amy is always flexible with me and is such a light in my crazy busy weeks as a student. It is so awesome to be able to contact her via chat throughout the week for support as well.

Written on Oct 26, 2022 after therapy with Amy for 5 months on issues concerning stress, anxiety, relationship issues, family conflicts, and anger management

Amy was my first and only therapist match on BetterHelp. She has been a bright spot in a very challenging season for me. I really appreciate her constantly holding space for me to process my moment, knowing just when to interject a question that helps me reflect further, an encouragement, a bit of technical insight from the professional field or let me take the lead and decide when I’ve explored a topic sufficiently for that session. She really is the perfect match for me. Thanks, Amy!!

Written on Aug 11, 2022 after therapy with Amy for 3 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, family conflicts, parenting issues, self esteem, anger management, and career difficulties

Amy is so down to Earth and helpful. She is very understanding and so easy to talk to.

I would recommend Amy to anyone. She’s such a good listener. I’ve been in therapy a month now and the methods and ways she’s helped me in such a short time has been amazing. I told her my goals for therapy and she’s doing that plus more. I can’t wait to work with her long term and see how I’m doing in a year. I’m really glad I chose her to be my therapist and if you’re considering her don’t think twice she’s the one for you too.

Written on May 03, 2022 after therapy with Amy for 2 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, grief, self esteem, and anger management

Amy has been completely amazing in helping me dealing with one of the hardest seasons I've had to go through. We talked about everything from grief of suddenly losing a family member, to new jobs, to money stressors, to parenting guilt, to past traumas, and so much more. I felt completely heard and supported. She is compassionate, down to earth, and reaffirming, and gave great, easy-to-implement strategies for when I feel overwhelmed.

She is amazing. She’s such a good listener, and is patient with me when strategies to help aren’t as useful as they could be. I would 10/10 recommend her.
