Hello! My name is AmySue Hartman and I am a licensed professional counselor in the state of Wisconsin. I have worked in various capacities within human services for the past 35 years (residential, vocational, respite care, after-hours crisis and community mental health outpatient). It's not easy taking steps to help yourself. My aim is to help you feel and believe there is hope for a better tomorrow in a non-judgmental platform.
I have worked with person's who experience symptoms of anxiety, depression, PTSD, low self-esteem, OCD, personality disorders, addiction, trauma, bi-polar disorder, schizophrenia, ADHD and anger issues. My professional work has always been primarily with adults and families.
My approach is to target your strengths, exploring what you perceive as your barriers and helping guide you toward resolution. Therapy modalities used will be: Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), Strengths Based Therapy, Recovery Oriented Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Solution Focused Therapy, Motivational Therapy, Narrative Therapy, and Trauma Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. Creating positive change in your life can be accomplished through completing worksheets, practicing techniques and interventions offered to you in our sessions. Together we will move at your pace and apply strategies to help you to feel empowered to make decisions more safely and confidently.
I truly look forward to meeting with you soon!

AmySue does a great job--I haven't been very interactive, consistently, which I'm sure makes her job a little more difficult, but the material she has provided is great for me to go back and look upon.

Since working with AmySue Hartman, for a little over 2 weeks I can already see progression in my mental, and emotional help. I’ve seen my anxiety levels go down, already, and talking with her, and expressing anything is easy and rewarding.

I've only spoken with Amy a couple of times now and of those times, she has given me the tools, not only verbally, but has sent information that has been amazing in helping me with my issues.

Amy is amazing and has helped me through so much. I honestly don't know where I would be without her. Thank you so much, Amy.
