Amy Morantes

(LCSW)

About Me

I am a licensed clinical social worker with 20 years of experience working with people of all ages. I have worked with clients who are experiencing a variety of concerns including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, struggles with parenting, adjustment and career challenges and grief and loss. I also have experience working with people who have experienced trauma and abuse.
My counseling style is strengths based and client centered. I believe in treating everyone with respect and compassion. My approach combines cognitive-behavioral therapy, solution-focused therapy and task-centered therapy. Because we are interrelated and interdependent, I believe it’s also important to look at the systems that affect our lives. I assist clients to develop goals and put into action a means to meet those goals
Seeking therapy is a courageous step towards leading a happier and more fulfilling life. It takes strength to show vulnerability. It has always been my honor to have the trust of a client as they begin to see their own strength and resiliency and to feel empowered.
I look forward to working with you.

Written by P.A. on Nov 15, 2020 after counseling with Amy for 2 months on issues concerning stress, anxiety, relationship issues, trauma and abuse, grief, and career difficulties

My counselor Amy is awesome. She is very down to earth and non judgmental. Whenever I talk to her she gives me words of wisdom for my situation even if it is just one sentence in the time we have for a session or in messages during the week. I always have a tool to use until the next time we speak along with the others she has given. She checks in on me to see how things are going or just to impart an encouraging word. Amy understands where I am coming from in my opinion. I wish I could give her a hug after every session that is how awesome she is to me! This is my first time ever talking with a counselor and it has been an awesome experience!!! I was so hesitant to do it online and over the phone because I didnt know if I would have a good experience but I am glad I did. I am so thankful to be matched with Amy!! I hope that others will use this service it helps especially with everything going on right now on top of just trying to live life!! For me getting matched with Amy was the icing on the cake!!!

Amy has been wonderful in helping me through my anxiety and helping me regain my self confidence again. There is much to be said about after the first session feeling more like yourself then you have in a long time and she really helped with that.

Amy has helped me so much. I was able to open up about my feelings to her which I don’t do often. She offers information about what I go through and different ways of dealing with it. I would recommend her 100%.
