About Me

Congratulations on having the courage to embrace change, the insight to recognize you deserve a different experience, and the motivation to put effort into getting a different result. Buckle up, hang on, and enjoy the ride as I guide you out of your comfort zone.
Asking for help is a sign of strength and courage, if you are ready to make changes to get a different result I would be honored to be your guide. My name is Amy Harger and I am a licensed mental health counselor in the state of Indiana. I am a judgement free, solution focused therapist ready to help anyone who is seeking a different experience and ready for change. While validating that all change is hard, there must also be acceptance that in order to get a different result you must do something differently. I am certified in Motivational Interviewing, CBT, ACT, Mindfulness and REBT and tend to use a mixture of these modalities tailored to each individual person based on need.
I am also a certified Suicide Prevention trainer and very comfortable with discussing suicidal ideation along with assessing risk level to refer to different level of treatment if warranted.
My personal goal is to provide tools to allow people to help themselves in reducing suffering in order to enjoy a more peaceful quality of life based in resiliency to overcome the stressors life throws at us.

Amy has helped me so much. Together, we tackle issues around OCD, anxiety, and beyond. She is a great listener, compassionate but also funny, and so insightful. She is also great about recommending resources: books, articles, meditations, and exercises.

Amy is a great therapist. She makes you feel seen and really listens. She recalls details you forget you shared and is always so friendly. She gives great advice and is always understanding.

Amy has a way of making me feel very comfortable talking to her while still being able to offer help and advice. I feel like I am talking to a professional and a confidant at the same time. It’s very reassuring and feels safe and easy.
