My name is Amy and I am a licensed professional counselor in the state of Pennsylvania. I have been in the mental health field for nearly 15 years in a variety of settings. This has given me the opportunity to assist a diverse group of people in addressing both acute and chronic mental health issues while also striving to achieve an improved satisfaction with life. While I am trained in a variety of therapeutic approaches, a person’s needs and preferences ultimately determine what will drive the collaboration. I am extensively trained in relationship issues, post traumatic stress disorder, and women’s health issues including pregnancy emotions, postpartum depression and perinatal loss. In addition to that, I also have a significant amount of experience with anxiety, depression, bipolar, grief /loss, and adjustment issues.
It can be overwhelming to experience negative emotions. Some of us only experience them for a short amount of time after a specific event occurs, while others experience their interference in life satisfaction for many years. It is my hope that I can assist you in assessing and managing the negative thoughts and emotions you might be experiencing. I believe those that I have worked with in the past would describe me as easy to talk to, having a love for humor, and liking to keep things “real.” I value creating a warm and genuine environment that you can feel comfortable in discussing some of the most difficult topics. Making this initial decision to establish a relationship with a counselor can leave you feeling vulnerable when getting ready to talk with a complete stranger. It is my goal to immediately create a comfortable working relationship. I look forward to meeting you!

I talk about BH all of the time! My therapist is absolutely amazing and the groupinars have literally changed my life as well as the rest of my family’s and every person that I share my story with. I now have a diagnosis of adult ADHD which makes COMPLETE SENSE of everything that I had suffered, hid and battled with my whole life. Excited to start my new chapter of “awareness and growth” and have the tools and compassion to help my son who also lives with it also. Thank you, thank you, THANK YOU. I am so happy to have found you. You have an absolute #1 FAN in me.

I think Amy Hausman is an excellent counselor. She has helped me so much. She is very understanding and doesn’t just say things I would want to hear to make me feel better. I like that she actually helped me work through my issues and responds fast. She’s great!
