About me

My name is Amy. I am a clinical psychologist. I have had an exciting career that started with treating Soldiers in the Military.

I commend you on taking the first steps toward change. Change is a journey characterized with difficulties, fear, work, and excitement all at the same time. I would be honored to go on that journey with you and can’t wait to get to know you better. Best of luck on new beginnings and remember laugher is a great way to find peace and relief in this crazy world.

Amy has been great. Connected with her on our first session after trying a few other therapists over the years. Very helpful, she is the first therapist who I feel really listened to me about some childhood and adult concerns.

Amy has helped me tremendously in the time she has been my therapist. She made me realize things I've never considered and I learned how to show compassion for myself as well as other. I recommend Amy highly. I was lost and she put me on my path to finding myself.

Written on Jan 10, 2022 after therapy with Amy for 1 year on issues concerning depression, relationship issues, family conflicts, eating disorders, sleeping disorders, self esteem, career difficulties, coaching, and adhd

I worked with Amy for about 10 months mostly on anxiety and work-related stress. She helped me identify patterns I hadn't noticed before, and taught me a number of skills to address my anxiety. She has always been responsive, positive, and very perceptive. I was really struggling when I began therapy with Amy, and she helped me find my footing again and put me back on track. I still have plenty of work to do, but Amy helped me develop the skills I needed to continue to develop during and after therapy.
