Welcome! I am Amy Powers and hold a license as a Marriage and Family Therapist (LMFT). My approach to therapy is rooted in compassion, unconditional positive regard and authenticity. I have been practicing therapy for ten years, and my background includes a combination of private practice and non-profit sector treatment. Most of the therapeutic work I do comes from a trauma-focused lens, as I am an EMDR trained therapist and utilize different approaches to address underlying trauma. Additionally, I am seasoned in other traditional talk therapy, such as, CBT, Strengths-Based, and Psychoanalytic.

It is human to experience distress when we live through trauma – single events or ongoing. I work with people who are trying to manage that distress. In addition to survivors, I also work with those impacted by other people's trauma. That group can include loved ones and professionals who manage other people’s distress. I offer relational psychotherapy to individuals and trauma-focused case consultation to professionals. I am developing a sub-specialty in working with journalists exposed to occupational chronic stress and trauma. I have an appreciation for the role of journalism. It is a privilege to work with news professionals.

Thank for your interest in my therapy practice. I’m a trauma-focused therapist who specializes in helping people heal from childhood trauma, PTSD, and psycho-emotional wounds. I see healing as a deeply personal and meaningful journey to recover our authentic wholeness and unique gifts for the world. It often involves reconnecting to and integrating split-off parts of ourselves, clearing traumatic memories, and releasing blockages and old patterns that no longer serve us. I work with a variety of healing modalities that are particularly helpful for healing trauma, including EMDR, journey work, parts work, and hypnotherapy.

“Being able to feel safe with other people is probably the single most important aspect of mental health; safe connections are fundamental to meaningful and satisfying lives.” ― Bessel A. van der Kolk. My approach to treatment helps people identify the core issues that have been avoided and pushed aside in an emotionally safe environment. Through the process of consciousness raising and self exploration, lasting changes in thought patterns are made, and overall life improvement occurs. I work with people of all ages and have a wealth of experience working with teens and young adults.

My work is driven by the deeply held belief that people get better. Every person has the ability to heal, make connections, and deserves healthy relationships. While the benefits of counseling can last for years, it shouldn't take years before experiencing the benefits. By using evidence based practices, significant change can happen rather quickly, in weeks and months. I have advanced degrees and training, and am certified in EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) and TF-CBT (Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy).
