My passion is offering a space for clients to process, understand, and work through traumatic experiences. I see "trauma" as a spectrum that we've all experienced at some point in our lives. My favorite aspect of providing counseling therapy is to witness the strength of the people that come to see me. The most rewarding aspect of my work is to share the tools and knowledge that I have gained with others while witnessing clients recognize strength and control they have yet to experience.

Hello, I am Amy, and my focus is on working one-on-one with adults (25yo+). I work with: The queer community, transgender, and gender non-conforming individuals, as I feel that they are not only under served, but are often poorly served. The ethically non-monogamous and the kink community. Clients with substance use issues. Those struggling to manage mental illness such as depression or anxiety. People whose issues stem from PTSD, trauma, or grief. Giving witness and presence to pain helps facilitate a space in which people can heal.
Experience has taught me that where you discover joy and passion, you also find a well to draw upon for wisdom. My focus is on calling forth your authentic self and bringing out the strengths you naturally possess. I bring an open mind to my sessions; I understand that my stories will never parallel those of every client. I have a wealth of life experience – enough to be confident that, working together, we can bring about profound personal growth. The goal is to see you not simply survive but thrive.

Over my 17-year career in mental health field I have worked in a variety of settings, from jails to crisis work to therapy in community mental health.
