Hi, I'm Amy! Therapy is a space to confront what is not working while supporting your strengths. I work with adults and teens who are looking to improve their wellness, manage emotions, develop self-esteem, improve communication, and cope with stress. Together, we will help you respond rather than react. I am also a Certified Perinatal Mental Health Therapist (PMH-C) and have a particular interest in working with clients facing fertility challenges, pregnancy, childbirth, postpartum, and infant parenthood. Overall, my goal is for therapy to provide a place where you feel understood and capable.
I draw upon CBT, DBT, EMDR, and Psychodynamic interventions combined with mind-body awareness to develop a holistic approach to well-being. Throughout therapy, we work together to uncover core beliefs, explore different perspectives, and commit to changing behaviors. My role is to help you understand thoughts, manage feelings, and improve self-compassion.
You deserve to develop skills that will help you cope with life. Therapy is hard work and also very rewarding. It can be intimidating to start therapy and tell a stranger your thoughts and feelings. Developing a rapport together is the first priority. I look forward to getting to know you.

I work with clients who are learning to manage anxiety, depression, and stress related to life transitions, work, and family/relationships in order to address overall wellness. Sessions focus on you as a whole person, current stressors, and goals. Most clients experience symptoms relief early on with the ability to sustain improvement and manage symptoms. I also work with perinatal clients.

Amy is an excellent therapist and confidant. She is an avid listener, empath, and treats each of her clients with quality care. Amy is highly skilled and I couldn't recommend her more. I feel lucky to have had Amy as a supervisor and as a colleague.

I use Cognitive Behavioral Therapy in my practice. During initial sessions, we will get to know each other, understand what brought you to therapy, and discuss goals/expectations of therapy. We will focus on recognizing emotional shifts in order to identify thoughts causing these and learn coping skills to change and/or tolerate these moments. I'll help you learn to respond rather than react.
