Amy Green

(LPCC, LMFT)

About Me

It's important to me that you have an idea of who I am as a human being first... then as a therapist. I am 40 years young. I have been with my husband since I was 20... and no, it wasn't always easy and yes, we did go to counseling, many times! I have a 18 year old daughter, who is by far one of my favorite people. I also have a 8 year old son whom is a gift as he keeps me active and young at heart. I also have many furry four legged children including six horses and two dogs. I love the arts and find nature to be the most beautiful canvas of all. I am strong willed and can be stubborn. I am also caring, giving and passionate about life. I am a lifelong learner and I am always discovering how I can be a better human being.

So, now you probably want to know what makes me qualified to help you. So, here it goes... I am a Licensed Marriage Family Therapist in the state of California and Oregon. I've been in private practice for 10 years and have been in the counseling field for 15 years. I am also an educator as I've taught at the University for over 10 years. I have been trained in a variety of therapeutic approaches including CBT, DBT, Trauma-Focused CBT, CPT, Attachment-Focused Dyadic Developmental, Brainspotting, Art Therapy, Play Therapy and Equine Assisted Psychotherapy.

I have worked with most ages and specialty areas throughout my career and I feel each person was a gift. In discovering my truth, I've also learned who I am meant to work with. I am specially gifted in working with those who have experienced loss, trauma, relationship distress, codependency, difficulty with self-esteem and low self-worth, intimacy challenges, feeling lost or unsure of where they belong within relationships and in life. I enjoy helping others to grow and learn who they can become.

My theoretical orientation is humanistic and psychodynamic... what that means is I believe who we are now is rooted in who we have been, and who we can become is rooted in our truth. I believe we can create a life full of joy. I believe we have to discover our selves, make sense and heal from our past, and learn how to move forward into the light. I believe we can do this within a genuine, caring and connected therapeutic relationship.

Written by N.A. on Jan 12, 2021 after counseling with Amy for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, addictions, self esteem, and anger management

Amy is great! We got off to a difficult start, but once we settled into the work she has been nothing short of wonderful. She gives great insight into what is going on and has nifty 'assignments' that really help you to dig deep at your feelings and brings things up to be dealt with. I am very glad to have Amy as my counselor!

Amy has been a patient, understanding, and supportive counselor. She responds quickly, thoughtfully, and respectfully.

Amy really seems interested in what is going on. I know I am not always clear with what I say I am not much of a writer but she seems to really understand my confusion.

Amy is wonderful. She really understands my concerns and thoughts. She provides thoughtful, helpful feedback that really resonates with me. I think I will really be able to grow a lot with her.

Any Green is amazing! She is very flexible with how often I’m willing to talk, which makes me more comfortable. Being on a set schedule doesn’t work for me. I need someone to talk to when I need it, not when they need it and she is amazing with that. There’s no rush to answer any of her questions, or respond. I like that it’s all on my terms. I would totally recommend her.

Amy has been the only counselor that has actually listened to me, and understood what I need help with. Her kindness is amazing and she takes the time to get to know me, she makes me feel like a priority. I highly recommend her to anyone seeking help.

Any Green has been very kind to me throughout the process. I’m new to this and she’s been patient with me. I feel so safe with her and she’s made me open up to things I didn’t want to go back to. She’s a great listener and an amazing counselor.

I really appreciate Amy's patience and responsiveness. I haven't been consistent in replying because of my schedule and she always checks in with me. I really appreciate that she thinks of me. I am confident that our session will be a good one. Thank you Amy!

She listens and allows me to think beyond my regular self. She responds often and quickly but with well said thoughts for me to reflect upon.

After my husband went into law enforcement, I was having difficulty with my anxiety. After starting my sessions with Amy, my anxiety is a lot more manageable now and she is an amazing listening! Thank you so much for all your help, Amy! 10/10 recommend!

Amy is very thoughtful and intentional with her questions and advice. She makes me feel like I can talk to her about anything and she will offer wise counsel. Even when I have had busy weeks she checks up on me to make sure I’m ok. I highly recommend her as a counselor on BetterHelp.

Written by E.R. on Sep 12, 2018 after counseling with Amy for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, and self esteem

Amy has been the most incredible addition to my life. I'm so full of gratitude for her and the help she's giving me.

She listens to my concerns, she lets me ramble and she responds to me with depth and empathy. I feel seen and heard when we're talking and almost immediately after we started counseling, I felt a weigh lifted off my shoulders. She's warm and kind and I know that she truly cares about me and my well-being. I will be sticking with Amy for as long as I can!

Written by J.O. on Sep 07, 2018 after counseling with Amy for 2 weeks on issues concerning stress, anxiety, family, and self esteem

She is super understanding, patient, and really pleasant to talk to. I can talk to her openly about things without worrying about her judging me.

Written by L.E. on Nov 19, 2017 after counseling with Amy for 2 months on issues concerning grief

I felt an instant connection with Amy... it immediately felt very comfortable when we began communicating several months ago. She seemed to always know exactly how I was feeling, which enabled me to share my most intimate feelings. Within a month of communicating I knew she was helping, and felt an amazing bond. Over the last several months Amy has helped me move forward in so many ways... I highly recommend working with Amy to help process your grief.

Amy was very understanding. She used tools and worksheets to get to know me better. She seemed to be very invested and interested in my dreams, journey and development.
