About Me

I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in North Carolina with 5 years of clinical experience. I have worked with various clients to include: adults, elementary, middle, and high school aged students. I have also worked in several settings/areas of social work such as: private mental health agencies, child protective services, hospital, group homes and public schools. I currently work with Veterans who experience: depression, anxiety, post-traumatic stress, various medical and psychosocial concerns as well as military sexual trauma. My areas of focus include: depression, anxiety, attention deficit disorder, attention deficit hyperactive disorder, medical/terminal illnesses, parenting concerns, anger management, relational issues, career/financial stressors and abuse/neglect/dependency/ foster care.
I am very compassionate, energetic, and highly motivated to assist my clients with making positive changes to reach their desired goals. I utilize several therapeutic interventions and therapy modalities, as I understand what works for one individual may not work for the next. I am a strong believer that we all are unique and special in our own ways. We all have strengths and weaknesses that set us apart from others. I utilize therapeutic interventions derived from: cognitive behavioral therapy, motivational interviewing, solution focused and self-centered therapy. My goal is to empower my clients to be successful, achieve their goals, and make progress in their specific area of concern.
I am excited and commend you for acknowledging the importance of having support, guidance, and assistance with navigating life. I look forward to developing a therapeutic relationship with you and serving to empower you along this journey. You only get one life to live let's work together and make it the best!

Reviews

These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Amy Locklear. We don’t pay anyone to provide their review and they are all made voluntarily. Some people's experience receiving therapy with BetterHelp might be different.

Amy is definately a good person to have discussions with. She's very easy to talk to and offers a lot of suggestions. I would recommend her to any of my friends. She also has a great sense of humor and is able to put a positive light on any situation.

I’m so thankful for Amy’s counsel. She is patient with me and asks leading questions to help both she and myself understand my mental needs. She is kind and experienced and helps me set goals to become better. So glad that I have someone else in my corner to help me improve myself both for my sake and the sake of others in my life.

Written by A.L. on Nov 24, 2020 after therapy with Amy for 3 weeks on issues concerning stress, anxiety, relationship issues, family conflicts, intimacy-related issues, eating disorders, sleeping disorders, parenting issues, self esteem, and anger management

Amy is such an awesome counselor! From the moment we had our first live session I felt very at ease with her. She has a calming spirit and never makes me feel like she is judging me. Amy is encouraging and celebrates even the smallest milestones. I’d recommend her to anyone I know.

Work with me!
