15 years of experience

I think one of the most important parts of therapy is finding the right "fit". That relationship is key in helping grow, trust and meet any goals that you might have going into the therapeutic process. Let me give you a glimpse of who I am! I'm Amy, a LMHC, who has been in the counseling world for over 15 years and love what I get to do. I started my career in the community health sector which I learned so much and worked with diverse groups of people with an array of various needs. I have worked in school settings as well as in homes. I have been deep within the community in many of my roles along the way. I have developed many techniques along the way as not one intervention will work for everyone. Some of the modalities I use are EMDR, CBT, Motivational interviewing, solution-focused techniques as well as a combination of these. I meet people where they are, maybe having to learn how they are even feeling let alone how to cope with that feeling. Maybe we have a tool, but if no one ever took the time to teach us, then what good is that tool?

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

I am client-centered and feel that the session is your time to be able to lead the session. That does not mean that I will not step in and re-direct when needed to identify and work through some things that come up. I like to think that I am seen as a very genuine and hope that you will take away different elements after each session. One session may be coping skills another session may be an increase in self-esteem and some sessions it may just be simply that someone was able to validate and listen to you.

What treatment methods and tools do you utilize?

As mentioned above, I do utilize different tools and methods during the course of treatment. I enjoy being able to watch someone grown and change though EMDR. I also like CBT and motivational interviewing. Mindfulness is another important part of the process. I do not believe that just one of the above will be a "fix all" so we will mix it up and see what works best for you.

Explain to clients what areas you feel are your biggest strengths.

I believe that my biggest areas of strength are trauma, stress, mood disorders, life adjustments, and identity issues. I think that my biggest strength is helping each individual really find their own way and be able to love their self. In order to do this, I really spend a lot of time developing a trusting, safe and genuine environment that allows for the self growth and exploration.
