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.

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 great and teaching me to remember myself in which I often forget. She’s been great.
Amy is professional and follows up with me. I appreciate her and her kindness and thoughtfulness. She helps me a lot.
I’m very appreciative of Ms. Amy Morantes’ experience in counseling. Right from the start Ms. Amy Morantes has been a great help!
Amy Morantes is great and shes helping me alot.
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.
I absolutely love Amy, she is so understanding and sweet. She helped me tackle things in a way I hadn’t thought of before.
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%.
I appreciate her compassion and advice!
Amy has been great about listening to me and helping me understand what I can do to better understand myself. She is easy to talk to and truly wants to help.
Amy is the best! Her expertise and her passion for helping people is evident. She really knows how to listen and make me feel heard. Her advice has been and is invaluable. I wish I didn’t wait as long as I did to get help and support.
