I believe that growth and change are possible. I believe we have the ability to enrich our human experience. I am committed to helping you understand your personal story in a caring and safe therapeutic environment. Together we will examine your inner world in a non-judgmental space that we create together.
I use a psychodynamic approach to increase insight, while drawing from solution-based approaches that provide tangible coping skills for managing day to day life. This process of self-examination and increased self-understanding will help identify and overcome the roadblocks standing in the way of reaching your full potential.

Amy is super nice and makes our sessions very comfortable. She is very understanding, supportive, and of course, is a great listener. I have only had a couple sessions, but I feel like they help as much as I need them to.

Amy is the first therapist I’ve talked to and it was the best decision of my life to reach out for help. She is very understanding and I never feel judged talking to her. She’s already changed my life in such a short amount of time!
