About

To accept life's major changes with grace and dignity can be excruciatingly difficult. And yet, it is a challenge to welcome because when approached with careful consideration, it invites self-definition and intentional living. Are psychic wounds or limiting self-beliefs holding you back? What matters most to you? The Chinese sage, Lao Tsu, said, "If you don't change direction, you will end up where you are heading." Are you happy with your direction? If not, come see me. I listen carefully and help you find your way. I am an active, fully-engaged therapist.
I work with adults striving for healthy adaptation to painful life transitions, trauma, loss, and addiction recovery. I have worked extensively with severe mental illness, dementia and caregiver support. I am certified in EMDR, practice Brief Solution Focused Therapy, CBT, MindfulnessTherapy, and Existential Therapy grounded in kindness and emotional generosity.
Between the stimulus and your response there is a space, and in that space is your power and your freedom (Frankl). Expand that space; live a deliberate life, where you know yourself and are true to what really matters to you. Therein lies the key to inner peace.

Amelie Southwood's Groups

Art for 12-Step Recovery

Create your own art book focusing on one of three therapeutic domains: your current life transition, harmonizing with caregiving, or your recovery from addiction using the 12-Step model. Each group starts with a brief talk then is followed by creative writing and applied art using paint, pencil, ink, collage materials. The group ends with a general discussion of the day's topic and participant insights gained during the session. The group atmosphere is peaceful and deeply supportive, where trust and respect rule: what is said there, what is heard there, stays there!
