About

My practice focuses on helping preteens, teens, and young adults and/or their families feel better via individual and group treatment. Seeking help and accepting guidance can be the first steps toward creating the life you want and deserve.
As a licensed clinical social worker & board certified behavior analyst, my approach to therapy blends a person's perspective with the environmental & learning components surrounding his/her life. Engaging in age appropriate independence, self sufficiency & skill building allows one's authenticity to (re)surface & shine brightly.
My approach is directive, coaching like. I enjoy working w/ individuals (&/or their loved ones) whom identify as emotionally sensitive, define own self worth by external factors, &/or relate to symptoms associated Borderline Personality Disorder. Trauma informed, child sexual abuse treatment & dialectical behavior therapy influence my treatment orientation.

Dawn Amey's Groups

Virtual-DBT group- Young Adult

Have you felt discouraged by past treatment results? Felt unable to tolerate intense emotional responses? If so, consider DBT. Uncomfortable with a 'group'? Let's talk because there are options! Dialectical Behavior Therapy is a teachable, learnable & practical approach. DBT places greater emphasis on behavioral interventions than cognitive interventions. It is directive & change oriented. DBT incorporates emotion regulation & reality testing with concepts of distress tolerance, acceptance, & mindfulness. This process involves the Dialectical philosophy in which no position is absolute. The Dialectical philosophy involves the synthesis of opposites, through understanding varying contexts & seeking a workable balance which leads to change.
