About me

I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and have been in practice since 2003. My specialties include working with adults and couples challenged by life changes, family or marital conflict, infertility, grief, anxiety and work difficulty.

I believe in creating a safe space to talk through complicated situations. I think bouncing things off someone neutral to a situation can allow us to work through many things. Perspective matters. How we see things impacts our response. I want to support you while challenging your perspective to ensure you are making healthy decisions you feel confident and proud about.

Therapy is part of who I am but it isn’t all. I know my experiences outside a therapy practice guide me to being a well rounded confidant.

I have been working with Amy for over 3 years now -She has been a pillar of stability for me. Through working with her, I have been able to take control of my life and learn ways to better manage my emotions and deal with stressors. I recommend Amy to anyone who is struggling with self-worth, relationship issues, depression or anxiety. She has been immensely helpful in these areas for me. She has also helped me set appropriate boundaries with my family. I am forever grateful for Amy’s presence in my life.
