Hello! My name is Amy. I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) with over 20 years of experience working with children, adolescents, and adults of all ages that have faced various life challenges in all stages of life. My passion is helping people in a way that provides them a sense of courage, empowerment, and motivation to make the changes that they want to live their best life!

What can clients expect to take away from sessions with you?

In the initial therapy session, clients can expect a welcoming and collaborative environment where we discuss confidentiality, therapeutic goals, and explore the client's background and current concerns. This session serves as an opportunity for clients to share their reasons for seeking therapy, express their expectations, and discuss potential therapeutic approaches. Together, we lay the groundwork for a trusting and supportive therapeutic relationship, ensuring that the client feels heard, understood, and comfortable moving forward. The initial session is a starting point for the collaborative journey towards growth, self-discovery, and positive change.

My treatment methods

Cognitive Behavioral (CBT)

As a mental health professional, I integrate Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) into my practice to empower individuals in understanding and reshaping their thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. CBT is an evidence-based therapeutic approach that emphasizes the connection between thoughts, emotions, and actions. In our sessions, we collaboratively explore and challenge negative thought patterns, identifying and reframing unhelpful beliefs that may contribute to emotional distress. Through practical and goal-oriented strategies, I guide clients in developing coping mechanisms and problem-solving skills. CBT fosters self-awareness, helping individuals recognize and modify maladaptive thinking patterns that may contribute to anxiety, depression, or other mental health concerns. By breaking down overwhelming challenges into manageable components, clients gain a sense of control and develop tools to navigate life's complexities more effectively. In addition to addressing current challenges, CBT equips individuals with skills that can be applied independently outside of therapy sessions, promoting long-term resilience and emotional well-being. My approach is collaborative, empathetic, and tailored to each client's unique needs, with the goal of fostering positive change and enhancing their overall mental health.

Dialectical Behavior (DBT)

In my therapeutic practice, I employ Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) to help individuals develop effective coping strategies for managing intense emotions, fostering mindfulness, and improving interpersonal relationships. DBT combines cognitive-behavioral techniques with elements of mindfulness and acceptance to address emotional dysregulation. Together, we work on building skills in distress tolerance, emotion regulation, and interpersonal effectiveness, enabling clients to navigate life's challenges with greater resilience and balance. DBT is particularly effective for individuals dealing with mood disorders, self-destructive behaviors, or difficulties in relationships, offering practical tools for lasting change and emotional well-being.

Grief Therapy

In my practice, I provide compassionate support to individuals navigating the complexities of loss. Grief therapy focuses on helping clients explore and express their emotions related to loss, offering a safe space for them to process their grief. Using various therapeutic techniques, we work together to honor and memorialize the departed, facilitating a healing journey that is unique to each individual. My approach involves guiding clients through the stages of grief, helping them find meaning, and ultimately fostering resilience in the face of loss.

Trauma Informed Care

In my therapeutic approach, I prioritize Trauma-Informed Care to create a safe and supportive environment for individuals who have experienced trauma. Trauma-Informed Care emphasizes understanding the impact of trauma on individuals' lives and tailoring interventions to promote healing. I work collaboratively with clients, acknowledging their experiences while fostering empowerment and resilience. By integrating trauma-sensitive practices, I aim to create a therapeutic alliance built on trust and compassion. This approach not only addresses the immediate effects of trauma but also supports individuals in reclaiming a sense of control, rebuilding their lives, and promoting lasting recovery.
