Hello! Thank you for visiting my Better Help profile. My name is Amy Halter and I am a Licensed Professional Counselor licensed in the state of Pennsylvania., Tennessee, West Virginia, New Hampshire and Washington. I have been practicing as a counselor for 15 years. In addition to Better Help, I also work in a private practice setting as well. I specialize in anxiety, depression, overall life stress and relationship issues. I utilize cognitive behavior therapy and together we will focus on changing negative thoughts in order to change behaviors. I also utilize solution focused therapy in that we will focus on what is currently working in your life and we can apply it to areas in your life that you identify are not working.
Right now, I know that many people are experiencing difficult times as a result of COVID. I know that some of my response times are a little slower due to COVID and the high number of messages that I am receiving. Please be patient and I will message within 1 to 2 business days.
I am here to help you no matter what you are going thru in life. There is no issue too big or too small for us to focus on. Sometimes, just reaching out to talk to someone about your concerns is a big step. I am here to listen to you and share this journey with you. I consider myself to be very compassionate, honest and matter of fact. I will give you the time and attention that you deserve as we work together. I look forward to building a therapeutic relationship with you and I hope that you will get to know me along the way. **Please note that although I have a schedule on Better Help it is beneficial to contact me directly to schedule phone calls/video sessions or live chats as my schedule changes often. I will try my best to accommodate your request.
I look forward to talking with you soon-Amy

I benefited so much from my weekly chats with Amy. She is kind and warm, it felt like I was talking with a good friend. She has helped me so much with setting and holding boundaries with extended family, she was very much the accountability buddy. Her weekly check-ins through the chat we’re always honest and encouraging and helped me through some weeks of heavy guilt I was having. Thank you Amy so much!
Amy is exactly what I needed in this moment. A caring, compassionate listener. A voice of calm and reasoning with great perspective. Amy's desire to truly understand my needs is very evident and her delivery is gentle but straight forward. I felt comfortable with her almost immediately which makes an enormous difference in my healing journey.
Amy is a human!! She makes me feel human! She’s just what the doctor ordered! She has exceeded all of my wild expectations!! I couldn’t be happier or feel better making the decision to sign up!
Trying to find a counselor that understood me, can be very challenging. When I found Amy, I had been through a half a dozen. She gets it. She's real. She doesn't just toss out platitudes, the way some do. She has genuine insight for real issues. 10/10 recommendation
She is a great lady. I appreciate her input.
Amy halter is and amazing woman. She makes me feel safe and free to talk about what u need to.
Signing up for BetterHelp was the best decision I’ve ever made. Amy is a true gem that cares about the wellbeing of her clients! I’ve recommended her and BetterHelp to everyone I know!
Amy is a great counselor. I have enjoyed working with her for the past couple of years. Amy is attentive, and always responds in a very timely manner to my messages. She makes sure to reach out to me weekly, even if I do not have time to respond. Seeing those messages is always comforting, and reassuring that she is available if/when I need something. Amy genuinely cares for clients' well-being, and I am fortunate to be able to work with her.
I have been working with Amy for about two weeks and so far our counseling together has been great. She shares about herself and own experiences as a way to connect. I feel that she hears my experiences, concerns, thoughts, and feelings and is able to convey empathy and understanding. She spends time listening to me, organizing my thoughts and experiences, and offering some insights on ways to work towards healthier coping. I appreciate that she is very human, and builds rapport and a connection. I would recommend work with Amy to others.
Amy is king, caring, and empathtic. She listens well and is open and honest. I can not recommend her enough.
10/10 would seek mental help from.
She has been great to work with, has wonderful insights and way to help. She is always responsive and I am glad to have found this service!
In a short time, I already feel more comfortable and at ease with Amy than the counselor I was seeing prior to beginning counseling through BetterHelp. At the time of writing this review, last night I was beginning to become really anxious and panicky over being an essential employee, a new order in my state that all residents have to wear masks in businesses, and the thought of having to enforce that policy at the store I work in. Amy took time out of her day to talk with me over the phone, to verbalize my feelings and what has been going on in my mind. She has come across to me as very understanding, sympathetic and non-judgmental, and I am eager to continue working with her as time goes on.
Amy is always checking in which I love with my busy schedule. I like talking to her because it's like talking to my best friend but she has a lot more experience with my mental health needs.
Amy is absolutely amazing! So respectful and kind. She’s very loving and helpful. I’ve already had multiple people sign up for BetterHelp because it’s helped me so much.
Amy has walked me through some of the most difficult moments of my life thus far! We have worked on healthy ways to overcome the stress and anxiety. I'm so thankful to have found BetterHelp and look forward to working with Amy in the future!
I have been with Amy for a few weeks. She is caring and listens to my concerns. She has provided me some techniques for dealing with some of my issues.
Enjoying my sessions with Amy. Thank you for listening and lending good advice.
I appreciate having her to talk to and having her listen to me.
Amy is responsive and quickly got to the point; which is so appreciated. She summed up a lot of my frustration over family issues; in one paragraph. Which other therapists would have stretched over hours of in person sessions. Highly recommended.
I really appreciate Amy’s ear. She’s very responsive and very helpful.
Amy is wonderful! She offers great insights and new perspectives in our family therapy sessions. She's also patient and accommodating - she changed her schedule to meet with us outside of business hours, which was much appreciated!
Amy is kind and understanding. Helps to move in the right direction.
Excellent therapist, listens to my concerns. Always checks in when I cancel an appointment. Would definitely recommend to friends and family.
Amy is a very friendly, open, and personable counselor who has provided with me with much needed opportunities to express myself and my struggles. I wish I had more time to write about her more thoroughly, but I most certainly do not regret our time together.
Amy is terrific! I appreciate her checking in while I was going through a hard time. She just gets it, she's not judgmental, just very real and available.
