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.

LPC #LPC-16813 (Expires: 2019-06-30)
Amy has offered a respectful, caring and very knowledgeable experience in therapy for me in a matter of just weeks.
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.
Amy has been really wonderful. I had a not so great experience with therapy before and she has eased my worries about it. She never pushes me too hard and always checks in with me to see how I am doing. I really appreciate her technique.
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.
Amy is amazing, she’s great at listening and really understanding how to help.
