Hello! I am a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, with 19 years of experience counseling individual teens and adults. I have trained and practiced extensively as a cognitive-behavioral therapist, and I also have a passion for mindfulness-based approaches for greater well-being. As a recovering worrier and formerly fierce self-critic, I find great peace and joy in Eastern and Western spiritual wisdom. This has helped to free me from thoughts and behaviors that weighed me down for many years. I enjoy sharing these perspectives/practices with others.
In counseling, I encourage people to tune into/trust their intuition; practice more self-compassion; release themselves from the burden of certain beliefs; and find meaning and opportunity in challenging experiences. I offer a holistic, compassionate, and collaborative approach to counseling.
I have a passion and specialty in assisting people who are experiencing anxiety and those who wish to be more loving towards themselves.
I also enjoy helping individuals who are seeking deeper contentment or meaning in their lives - and those who are navigating life changes, such as serious illness, parenthood, and end-of-life for oneself or a loved one.
Most of my clinical experience has been counseling teens and adults in outpatient settings (group and private practice). I have also worked in intensive outpatient programs, providing cognitive-behavioral and mindfulness therapy to those experiencing depression and/or anxiety. In addition, I am trained in a dream interpretation model developed at the University of Maryland, for those interested in using their dreams to better understand and enhance their waking lives.
My other personal/professional interests include astrology, yoga, energy healing, singing, minimalism, travel, and walks in nature.
Thank you for viewing my site. It will be a joy to connect with and assist you!

These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Amy Torn. We don’t pay anyone to provide their review and they are all made voluntarily. Some people's experience receiving therapy with BetterHelp might be different.
Amy has provided me much need guidance and tools to help me navigate the loss of a parent, raising young children and blending families. I look
forward to our sessions each and every time.
Amy Torn is wonderful! This is my first time and therapy and she has made me feel so comfortable to open up, she gives great feedback, and is very responsive. Highly recommended.
love her! she’s amazing
In the short time I have worked with Amy, she has made me feel seen, heard, and honored. I could quickly tell how much she cares about her patients. I was hesitant to try therapy, but I feel grateful to have been paired with such a thoughtful, patient, and professional therapist.
Amy had been wonderful! She is so kind and understanding, and has some really wonderful tips and insights. I have already recommended her to several people!
Amy is an amazing support. I had to switch therapists because I moved to another state and I was very scared for not finding someone. Little did I know that I was going to cross paths with Amy. She is an excellent listener, very kind and caring. I feel she truly cares about what I share with her and she takes the time to check in with me. She shares different approaches to the same issues I face which helps me see the situation through many different lenses and thus I can reach to a solution easier. I totally recommend her!
She is a great listener and offers great advice to help me control my anxiety/depression. She’s so easy to talk to and I feel she genuinely cares about my well being. She checks in often and is available often. BetterHelp did a great job at matching me with Amy!
Only a few sessions in with Amy but I’m so appreciative of her listening, understanding and how she presents solutions or ideas. Excited to keep meeting with her.
The counselor is an expert in her field. She’s an amazing listener, nonjudgmental, caring and relatable. She responds great to diversity.
