About Me

My name is Amy Guy and I have been doing therapy for a little over 20 years. It is an honor and privilege to be a part of peoples lives and stories. The simple act of bearing witness to what has occurred and currently is occurring in peoples lives is a gift. I love the process of therapy. I have seen over the years the healing power of therapy both as a patient and as a therapist. I use a strength based, client centered approach to therapy. I often incorporate mindfulness into my treatment and enjoy the process of working together to uncover peoples underlying strengths. I believe EVERYONE can benefit from therapy as we can always learn and grow in our relationships with ourselves and others. I own the Wellness Loft in Effingham Illinois. Feel free to check out the Wellness Loft on Facebook and thewellnesslofteffingham on Instagram to learn more about me.

Amy has been helping me for a few months now and joining betterhelp was the best decision I took this year! So convenient to have someone with such expertise and kindness with whom I can virtually chat each week, especially when you have to travel for work like me. And during a pandemic, with all the anxiety that it can produce, it's a blessing to have such a great support for my mental health :)

Amy is a wonderful counselor. She listens well and takes time to get to know you. Amy is warm, kind, encouraging and helpful. I really appreciate the help I have received from her the last several months.

She helps me take a step back and go Hmmmm.
Then be an active participant in my healing process.

First, Amy's response time rivals an EMT! Not only is she thoughtful, but also quite considerate regarding her busy schedule. Not being a big fan of therapy in general, I find myself comfortable with Amy and don't consider our sessions/conversations as a chore; rather, I am relieved to find someone to confide in to hopefully find a better coping method.

Amy was awesome. She was spot on with calming my fears.
