A key part of Amy’s therapeutic practice is to normalize what you are going through by relating your experience to her personal life, where she indicates that she has experienced something similar to what you have in order to make you feel less isolated. While this is not an approach that works for me as someone who prefers to have a therapist who asks questions that lead me to pull on my own experiences to address what I am navigating, if you are someone who is looking to have this form of therapeutic relationship Amy is very friendly and non-judge mental.
She’s great! I really like her and feel comfortable talking to her.
