Amy Dibos

(LCSW-C)

About Me

I am a certified licensed clinical social worker with a masters degree from the University of Texas at Austin. I am married and the mother of three twenty something children. I have worked in agency settings and private practice for over 34 years. I have been in private practice providing individual psychotherapy with adolescents and adults, couples counseling and family therapy for 17 years. I use a variety of techniques in therapy, trying to find what will work best for you. These techniques are likely to include dialogue, interpretation, cognitive reframing, awareness and self monitoring exercises, relaxation techniques, mindfulness work and journal writing. Approaching feelings or thoughts that you may have tried to avoid for a long time or recent painful experiences can be painful and scary and my goal is to provide you a confidential, supportive and non judgmental space for you to explore these feelings and life experiences.

My areas of specialization and expertise include individual therapy for both men and women, couples and family therapy. I have extensive experience working with a cognitive behavioral approach for anxiety and depression, adjustment, transition and relationship issues. In addition I have experience working with survivors of trauma, abuse and victimization. My private practice is currently located in a college town and I have had years of experience working with college age students transitioning to the college environment as well as the transition to the next stage of their adult lives.

It would be my pleasure and honor to support you at this time in your life. I look forward to getting to know you and working with you.

Amy

Amy is amazing.

Written by K.A. on Oct 03, 2017 after counseling with Amy for 5 months stress, anxiety, trauma and abuse, grief, and intimacy-related

Amy is an excellent clinician. She offers a variety of techniques, unique for each individual, depending on their needs. Very responsive, on daily basis. She has helped me through some very difficult times and i'm thankful to have found her and her expertise, compassion, and also sense of humor. It is clearly evident she enjoys what she does and does it because she enjoys - and is good at it :-)

I really love Amy! She is very responsive... way more than I would have ever expected any counselor to be. At first I was kind of nervous about writing all the time, but she really encouraged me to write in the space between live sessions. I have been to therapy before, and I find it extremely helpful to be able to stay in touch with the therapist = between appointments. This is especially true because often when I would go into therapy, I struggled to remember what were "highs and lows" of that week.

Amy always has great advice and is concerned about my wellbeing. She listens and responds promptly. She makes it easy to share my life's problems, concerns and accomplishments.

Amy is very thoughtful and insightful. She has a great balance of providing feedback/advice while still letting you figure some things out on your own.

Written by S.Y on Feb 28, 2017 after counseling with Amy for 4 weeks depression, stress, anxiety, eating, self esteem, and career

Amy has been such a great help so far. She always replies quickly and addresses all of my concerns and questions. I can definitely tell she takes time to actually read my messages and crafts thoughtful answers. She's also gone above and beyond what I expected and shared some very helpful Ted Talks and worksheets with me. I would recommend Amy to anyone!

Amy is amazing. Simple as that.

Written by J.E on Dec 08, 2016 after counseling with Amy for 3 weeks stress, anxiety, self esteem, and career

I wanted to write another testimonial for Amy Dibos to add to what I said before. It's clear to me that she really reads my messages and thinks about them. Then, she responds with substantive thoughts and suggestions. She doesn't simply react to what I say and ask questions. Rather, she gives me something to think about or consider, something to try out, or explore. I really find that useful. She doesn't just listen (which is hugely important by itself), but she also responds with substance. Thanks to BetterHelp for having counselors like Amy available!

Amy is a phenomenal counselor! She gives me great feedback and even checks on me when I don't respond in a few days. It feels great to know that she's thinking of me and not just waiting on me to come to her.
