Amy Brant

(MSE, LSC, LMFT)

About Me

As a Marriage and Family Therapist, I believe that each family unit is unique. When positive growth or change is made by one member of the family, each member benefits.
I started my career in 1998 as a teacher for students with special needs and as a public school guidance counselor. In 2011, I decided to earn my LMFT degree as it was becoming more clear that our families and past experiences strongly shape decisions we make and behaviors we choose as adults.

My therapeutic approach varies as to what you need. Some people benefit from Solution-Focused, brief-type therapy, while others may need a more collaborative, educational approach. I offer EMDR for trauma/PTSD and Prepare-Enrich curriculum for couples' needs. I will be a supportive, empathetic listener and will take time to craft my services around your individual needs, whether that is working through events in your past or planning a healthy future. My goal is to empower you to become the best YOU!

Amy is great, she is able to talk to my head in such a kind and helpful way. I am able to work though things much more quickly with her! Totally worth the investment.

After going to a psychologist for a few months and being unhappy with the help I was receiving I wanted to try an online therapy platform. Amy is the only therapist I’ve worked with on BetterHelp but even after 2 phone sessions I feel better understood and supported than I did in months of therapy with my past individual!

Amy is very insightful and kind. She also has experience of being an actual mom, and understanding about family life.

Amy is a great, confident counselor that listens fully. She keeps track of so many things while getting down to the core issues. She is great via text and video and will serve you well whenever you are in need. She’s come through for me when I needed her in emergency situations and is someone you can trust.

Amy’s a big confidence booster, I feel vast improvement in my lively hood. Some days will be tough through her conversations, but just know it’s to your benefit. I feel nothing but comfortable and that I’m finally being listened to and understood.

I have spoken with Amy twice over the phone and multiple times through the forum. She was great from the start and I look forward to our sessions. I look forward to continuing to work with Amy.

Amy is a wonderful kind and understanding person with a passion and love for her work. She knows how to pinpoint and help with a variety of issues and is always there when needed. Her encouragement to participate and talk openly about the issues is second to none

Amy listens like an old friend, really digs in and finds the root cause of the issue, and gives lots of options to address whatever the problem or feeling may be. Not only that, she can adjust quickly and efficiently when new problems arise or things change.

Amy gives me a sense of calm when my world feels chaotic. Feeling an overwhelming sense of grief and anger everyday was starting to ruin parts of my life and she helped me realize there’s light and there’s ways to handle things so I don’t lose myself! I’m so happy I found her!
