Amy Faust

(MFCT, LPC)

About Me

With more than 20 years in the field, and 16 of those in direct counseling work I have come to the conclusion that everyone struggles a bit from time to time. I have worked with numerous families, moving through the trials and tribulations of childhood, adolescence and young adulthood. Parenting isn't easy, and things have become even more complicated with blended family situations and technological advances. Kids have access to more information and parents have more things to worry about. Life is very fast paced and staying connected to our families, friends and loved ones can be a challenge. I've worked with kids, adults, couples and families from all backgrounds and environments, working with them as they find their way through the challenges of making ends meet, keeping the faith, believing in something greater, and adjusting to change, loss, and frustrations of life.

As a Military Spouse, step-parent, and a biological parent at Advanced Maternal Age, I can truly relate to the many toils of parenting and relationships. Though no one issue is the same, my personal and professional background gives me a unique perspective not often found in many helping professionals.

It takes bravery and humility to reach out for help, and few of us are capable of recognizing that we just don't need to do it alone. My role as a therapist is to help people find their way. I can guide you through the process and provide support as we figure out together what needs to be done to reach your goals. Sometimes, all we need is direction. Other times we need a little more than that, and I'm here to help you figure it out.

Written by K.A. on Mar 26, 2021 after counseling with Amy for 2 weeks

Amy is very friendly and knowledgeable! I feel very comfortable talking with her, although she puts no pressure on me to talk about issues before I am ready. She offers many options for treatment and provides information and time before committing to any specific path. She is also very transparent about why certain things may be happening in your brain and goes about explaining them very clearly.

Amy is very helpful and supportive. I feel that I can freely share any thoughts with her. She is not only supportive regarding my experiences, but she is able to point me to resources and offer help and advice on building my own support system.

Amy Faust is a wonderful counselor. She's very patient, and understanding. Very professional, but not so much to be off putting.

Written by A.M. on Jan 04, 2019 after counseling with Amy for 1 month

Amy is absolutely AMAZING! She takes time to listen to you and asks you questions in order to help sort things out. She offers well put together advice that feels very comforting, but also through and to the point - not generic advice at all. She helps you find different ways to approach things that may be stressing you and help you find a way through it. Amy is warm, friendly and funny... I felt very comfortable talking to her right away. I highly recommend Amy to anyone who needs some great advice and someone who will truly listen to you and wants to help. Thank you, Amy!

Written by S.A. on Nov 26, 2018 after counseling with Amy for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, addictions, relationship issues, family conflicts, intimacy-related issues, sleeping disorders, self esteem, and career difficulties

Amy has been very nice and filled with information. I’m a learner, in the sense that if I don’t know about something it scares me and she caught on to that quickly and taught me in depth about a lot of the issues I’ve been having.

Written by J.E. on Nov 23, 2018 after counseling with Amy for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, and stress, anxiety

I appreciate the time and effort she has taken. I would have rated her higher, but we are still very new to the patient-doctor relationship. I feel that she has been very helpful so far, and I hope to continue a while with her as my counselor.
