Amy is absolutely wonderful and a joy to talk to. I spent the last two months talking to her, working through specific issues from work to family and relationships and feel like I’ve had breakthroughs in every aspect whether during our sessions or after.

This was my first time going to therapy and I am very lucky to have been paired with her. She is kind and patient, understood my needs without jumping to conclusions and I appreciated my time with her very much. Thank you!!

Amy is a wonderful, responsive, supportive individual and I really enjoy our sessions. She is helping me add to my "tool kit" so that I can handle the challenges that lie ahead.

Thank you so much, Amy!

I feel very lucky to have found Amy. I’ve sought out therapy many times in my life and she’s already up there with my favorites. She creates a very welcoming and safe environment, and I feel that all of her feedback is consistently on point and that she does an amazing job of helping you set goals and move forward step by step through your healing process. 10/10 would recommend her to anyone.

In the short amount of time I have spoken to Amy I have come away with a clearer, more positive mindset. I can go into these sessions sceptical about what I am going to get out of it but they can be excellent and I recommend to anyone who's on the fence to just try it.
