Amy J. Ugulini Pals is not currently accepting new clients.
Do you or your child have many strengths, but have symptoms of depression, anxiety, anger, or trauma that are keeping you or your child from reaching your full potential? Does your child struggle with challenging behaviors that negatively impact his or her life? Therapy can help you overcome these symptoms and meet your goals! I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor with experience providing therapy to children, adolescents, young adults, families, and adults. I look forward to helping you regain the strength and confidence in yourself and your ability to manage and conquer struggles you may be facing.
I also love helping children and adolescents with challenging behaviors, including those that may be present with ADHD and Oppositional Defiant Disorder. I combine a strengths and evidence-based therapy approach to provide the support and guidance needed to give you the best opportunity for success.
I am trained in Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and have extensive experience working with clients who have experienced trauma. I strive to provide services in a trauma-informed manner and love to build a strong therapeutic relationship with clients using appropriate humor as I feel it is a powerful healing tool.
