About me

I am a Licensed Clinical Mental Health Counselor with over 20 years of experience working as a mental health therapist and life coach. I have worked with Clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, anger, self-esteem related issues, PTSD (childhood, domestic violence, physical trauma, emotional trauma, sexual assault, MST, and Combat trauma), relationship issues, parenting problems, career challenges, OCD and ADHD. I have also helped many people with geriatric/elder transitional related issues.

My counseling style is warm and interactive. I believe in treating everyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion, and I don't believe in stigmatizing labels. My approach combines cognitive-behavioral, humanistic, psychodynamic, strength based, and solution-focused therapies. . I will tailor our dialogue and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs based on your personal goals.

It takes courage to seek for a more fulfilling and happier life and to take the first steps towards a change. If you are ready to take that step I am here to support and empower you.

I look forward to working with you!

Im so glad I was paired either Amy. The few months I had with her were such a delight. She's the sweetest person and best of all she listens without judgement. She is patient and truly wants to help you get better.

Amy was the first therapist I was matched with, and I’m so glad I didn’t need to venture to find another. She has unquestionable expertise and a sense of humor. I’d recommend her to anyone!
