I work with you to identify how you want your life to look and feel like and then to address any blocks you might have to having the life you desire. I want to help you achieve your desired therapy goals as quickly as possible while giving you as much time as you need. 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, energy psychology methods and other types of therapy that might be helpful depending on your preferences and problems. I am also a certified life coach.
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.
I have a bachelor's degree in social science, a master's degree in counseling psychology, seven years (ABD) in a doctoral program for counseling psychology, and I transferred to a PhD program in psychology specializing in consciousness, spirituality, and integrative health.

Amy's no-nonsense but compassionate approach to my therapy falls perfectly in line with my needs
I really like the way she presents information.
Amy is the best <3
Amy is the most down to earth, practical but still empathetic counselor I have been to. Even when I am unsure of the direction the conversation might be going, she knows the right questions to ask to get to the root of the issue I am trying to resolve. Her suggested therapies for my treatment have been spot on so far. I am very grateful for her and will continue to recommend her to anyone who is searching for this type of counseling.
Working with Amy is fantastic. She is helping me deal with a lot of changes that have happened in my life recently. Prior to working with her, I was feeling really stagnant and was struggling to get back to living my life and accomplishing goals. Since I’ve started working with her, I’ve been able to tackle a number of projects. She is also teaching me skills and tools so I will be able to be efficient and effective. This seriously has been life changing. I strongly recommend working with Amy. She is professional, helpful, nonjudgmental and realistic.
She challenges me to really be affective in making changes towards my personal goals and happiness.
She sent very useful resources in two formats to help formulate a plan for personal improvement. I have not been as communicative and I appreciate that she had checked in and that there’s effort to have someone who wants to help, if that makes any sense. Mental illness is such a bear. This makes it easier to parse when you just can’t handle being around people much.
So far she’s been fantastic and I really appreciate her validating my feelings and experiences. Thank you!
Amy is wonderful.
Right from the start I was impressed with Amy's professionalism, how seriously she took her work and how effective she was even when we were just texting. Things have been going well since I decided to get help and would definitely recommend this course of action for anyone trying to better their life.
Honestly she’s absolutely fantastic! She’s real and truly cares.
Messaging with Amy has been really helpful. I appreciate how quickly and thoughtfully she responds to my messages. I’ve felt more assured knowing that I can text her if something has happened.
Amy not only listens but reframes things in a clear and helpful way. She's also willing to provide you the resources you ask for--and even developed a video series to help me! I've had several counselors over my life and she's the best by leaps and bounds!!
I feel that she really knows the right questions to ask and I think she’s really patient and wonderful. I would recommend her to anyone wanting help in any of her specialties
Amy is an amazingly compassionate person, who shows exceptional skill as a therapist. She listens, identifies what's happening, and gives easily-understood and easily-implemented approaches to things. I came into therapy with a little hesitance and a lot of confusion, and within a short period gained a lot more insight into my situation, my feelings, and a lot more control over how I was responding to challenging circumstances. It was an awesome experience.
Amy is always very responsive and thought in her responses. I feel like she really listens to what I have to say, and can ask questions that bring the conversation to a deeper level. I would highly recommend Amy as a counselor.
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.
Amy is a great, she is clear. Realistic and provides you with thought provoking questions that allow you to dig deeper into what could be causing your issues.
Amy is amazing. I appreciate how she listens to me and I trust her expertise.
She seems very sharp, responsive, great communication, and gets to the heart of what you need.
She is a reliable source when my emotions are not stable.
Amy provides awesome insights!
She's open minded and timely in her responses. It's early but so far I'm glad I did this.
