About Me

I am a licensed professional clinical counselor with a wide range of experience and expertise. I welcome clients who are struggling with relationships, anxiety, depression, life adjustments and transitions, grief, and recovery-related issues. Sessions are very much client-led, meaning that you determine the goals and the direction of our sessions. I believe that clients usually hold the solutions to their identified problems; they simply need help to recognize behavior patterns or themes in their lives in order to take the necessary steps for growth, change, and improved lives. That's my role: to assist with an outside perspective in order to challenge and modify beliefs and thought patterns for improved outcomes.
I believe that all individuals have the ability to grow and change. This belief is the foundation from which I encourage my clients to process, explore, and make lasting changes in order to live their best lives. The truth is, we're all just doing the best we know to do; the challenge is to embrace new perspectives and approaches as we strive to do better.
I have several years of experience working with adults and families in outpatient, inpatient, and residential settings. I utilize a strengths-based approach with an emphasis in CBT/REBT, Hope Focused counseling, recovery-related counseling and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy. I have a special interest in personality and adjustment disorders.

She’s very warm and open and accepting. You can trust that she won’t shocked or judgemental about the bigger issues. She always focuses on what steps you can take to live a more positive life.

Amy's been great. I have nothing to complain about. She's more responsive than I am so hopefully that's not too frustrating. I appreciate her help

Amy is very intuitive. Feel like I can open up to her warts and all. Wish I could video converse with her. Strongly feel she has insight into my situation. She instills a lot of confidence in me and I trust her judgment. She is greatly appreciated.
