Do emotions feel foreign to you? Overwhelming? Were you taught to just ignore what you are feeling and power through to the next thing on your to-do list? I work with clients to embrace and understand all these things that they feel from day to day which then allows them to function at their full potential. Emotions don’t have to be intimidating or overwhelming, I would love to show you how they can become a source of strength. Hello I’m Amy, owner and therapist at Reliant Counseling, my own tele-health based counseling company. I work to empower others to unlock their full potential and embrace emotions.
With my clients I focus primarily on emotional acceptance and executive counseling often with people who are at the point of burnout in their careers which bleeds into all areas of their lives. We will work to find healthy outlets and other solutions that will allow you to focus your energy in a more efficient way and set you up for satisfaction in all areas.
My counseling style is more laid back, I want us to feel like we are just having a conversation while also developing new skills or processing through stress. I believe in treating anyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion, and I don’t believe in stigmatizing labels. My approach combines many different modalities to assist you in achieving your goals.
I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, parenting problems, career challenges, substance use addictions, and children's services/foster care involvement.
I applaud you for taking the steps to grow and work through whatever struggles you may be facing and I hope we can go on that journey together.
I look forward to working with you!

Amy has been outstanding thus far. To be fair, I have only had two sessions with her. However in that short amount of time I feel as though she has really identified my needs and her advice and conversations thus far have been very helpful and thoughtful.

She is helpful and listens to the issues you are facing. With her help, I was able to navigate a very difficult time in my life and get out the other side and that is something I will always be thankful for.

Amy is wonderful and I have full confidence in how she’s helping me navigate a very, very rough patch in life. She checks in on me and makes sure I understand that I am responsible for ME, not anyone else. I love chatting with her and knowing she is going to listen to me and give me sound feedback.

Amy truly listens to what I'm sharing. Always has great ideas of what to try and how to process particular situations. I am so glad I was paired with her! The progress I've made is amazing and gives me peace.
