Hello, my name is Amy Flores and I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker, currently licensed in Tennessee. For the last 5 years, I have been helping children, adolescents, and families in a therapeutic position, but I have 10 years of experience working with behavior and social/emotional challenges. I do utilize a strengths-based, client-centered, or a solution-focused approach, but I incorporate other interventions, to facilitate desired goals and provide opportunities for healing and/or support (Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavior Therapy, mindfulness, music therapy, etc.). I have experience with anxiety, depression, trauma, abuse, ADHD, behavioral and Couples/family challenges.
I appreciate this step you are making and I take this search for support very seriously. I believe we all have unique strengths, but sometimes life challenges our belief in ourselves and we doubt our capabilities. I am here to help you recognize those strengths again and help you get to the path you have been wanting. You have already done the first step and I would be honored to help with the next steps.
If given the opportunity, I feel we can build a trusting rapport, which would provide you with an environment and a new hope that can help you accomplish your therapeutic goals.
I look forward to working with you.

I’ve only had 2 sessions with Amy and I already love her! Therapy was something I didn’t want to pursue before due to being afraid of having to finally open up about past events and Amy makes that incredibly easy and is a very comforting person. I leave our sessions already feeling like I can better understand and deal with a specific event we talked about.

Amy is very compassionate. I like that she asks questions, it lets me know she is listening. I’ve only been seeing her twice but she’s already helped me feel better. I couldn’t recommend her more.
