Amy Hayes, LCSW
I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker with over 20 years in the counseling field. Many of my clients experience stress, grief, anxiety, depression, difficult life transitions, and challenges surrounding blended families. My experience surrounds settings in both large cities and small towns with a span through a variety of cultures.
It becomes an important piece of our work together that I tailor my counseling approach to your needs and comfort level. My desire to help, support and motivate others comes from a personal history with overcoming some of life's major challenges and obstacles. Learning there is support out there, knowing that we can overcome suffering and find our inner strength, has become an important mission for me.
Cognitive behavioral, humanistic, empowering, and task oriented approaches are used widely in my practice. At times it can be simple daily challenges that become too overwhelming for us, while other times suffering from longer lasting challenges such as death and various trauma are why my clients seek support. When change is needed, whether we know what needs to be changed or not, we can take a look at what is going on around and within us. It is at this time that change can begin to occur. By taking the first step to a more healthy you, healing can begin, doors will open, growth occurs, and new life skills can be obtained. I hope to meet you and am glad you made it here.

Amy Hayes has been a great listener for me to work through some issues I’m having and checks on me when I haven’t posted anything. My talks get me thinking about the best way forward and her messages inspire me to think of how I’m going to succeed in my endeavors.
