About Me

Hello! My name is Amy and I live and work in Seattle, WA. I have been working in the mental health field since 2008. I have a bachelor's degree in social science, a master's degree in counseling psychology, and seven years of doctoral level education in counseling psychology. I've had specialized training in trauma disorders, including complex trauma, substance use disorders and addictions, eating disorders, and couples therapy. I am a state certified substance abuse professional and a nationally certified master addictions counselor. I also hold a certified clinical trauma professional credential and I am a state-approved clinical supervisor. I work with people to help them find solutions to whatever they decide their problems are. There is no judgment about where you've been or where you're at now and we will work together to help you figure out what your goals are and how to achieve them. I teach mindfulness skills to clients and skills to help them learn how to take control of their emotions so that their emotions are no longer controlling them. I use dialectical behavior therapy, cognitive behavior therapy, EMDR therapy, and other types of therapy that might be helpful depending on your preferences and problems. I am also a life coach and have received training from iPEC, one of the largest ICF-accredited coach training schools in the world. For anyone who resides outside of Washington State, I can provide coaching services from a therapeutic perspective.

I got my start working in residential treatment with counseling and providing case management for people who have severe and persistent mental illness. From there, I moved to an outpatient community mental health agency, where I worked for five years as a therapist specializing in helping people who have co-occurring disorders (one or more mental health disorders and a substance use disorder and/or addiction). While working in community mental health, I started my private practice and did both until September 2016, when I went full time in private practice. My coaching practice is online and I facilitate a personal growth and development group.

Please note that I will respond to all messages within 24 hours. You are welcome to schedule a 30 minute live session (phone, chat, or video) in any open time slot I have available at any time.

Amy Plumb was a great mental help professional and she responded quickly to my messages with compassion and information to help me better understand some of the things I was going through and try to provide me with strategies for dealing with those things.

She's open minded and timely in her responses. It's early but so far I'm glad I did this.
