About

Life is not a straight road. It is sometimes smooth, sometimes rough, and hazardous more than we might wish it to be. It is at these times that we seek guidance, a helping hand to navigate the journey. As a Licensed Masters Level Clinical Social Worker with 20 years of experience in human services and 10 years clinical experience, Amariah is such a guide. A nurturer by nature, Amariah offers a modern approach to mental health caregiving that harmoniously blends mind-body practices like yoga and mindfulness with evidence-based treatment models.
Amariah is certified as both a Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT) practitioner and Child Mental Health Professional, with specialized training in Perinatal Mood and Anxiety Disorders, Trauma-Informed Yoga, Dialectical Behavior Therapy, and Mindfulness Coaching with children and adults.
Amariah's approach to healing is holistic and heart-centered. Amariah is dedicated to helping each individual discover their own path to embodying their best selves.
