Amy Freede

(MSSA, LCSW, LISW-S)

About Me

I graduated from Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland, Ohio with a Master of Science in Social Administration. I am currently a licensed clinical social worker in both Ohio and Indiana. I have worked as a therapist for the last eight years. My approach is person-centered and trauma informed, drawing from cognitive behavioral and dialectical behavioral techniques with an emphasis on mindfulness and self care.

If you are going through a big life transition or simply feel like you are floating lately and need to find yourself again, I can help you to get in touch with yourself and reach your full potential. I have found that it works best to tailor interventions to the individual I am working with, to draw on your strengths and interests in order to help you achieve your goals. I believe in tapping into what recharges us on a daily basis and believe in the healing power of nature, spirituality, exercise, and social connection. Whatever you are struggling with right now, know that you are not alone and that it is so amazing that you are reaching out for help. I look forward to working with you.

Reviews

Written by E.M. on Nov 03, 2019 after counseling with Amy for 2 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, family conflicts, trauma and abuse, intimacy-related issues, self esteem, bipolar disorder, coping with life changes, coaching, and adhd

The reason I wanted to start counseling was something that I can’t talk about with anyone else, because I would be judged, probably almost as harshly as I judge myself for it. Amy has never made me feel judged or looked down on in any way. She makes me feel respected and helps me understand that my feelings are valid even though I sometimes don’t like how I process them. She has been helping me piece through a lot of confusing things, offering useful perspectives, asking difficult questions, and helping me to see aspects of my situation that I have missed on my own. I would highly recommend Amy to any incoming patients.

Amy is a wonderful person and is very caring. She is patient with me and actively listens to me, which means a lot when you open up about personal things.
