Amy Halls
Marriage & Family Therapist, LMFT Verified
My name is Amy Halls and I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist (LMFT). I believe that everyone experiences pain and distress in their life, and there are times when you need someone to walk beside you and help you through that journey. I want each client to have a safe, non-judgmental and understanding environment to explore stressors, relationships, and life transitions. I use a very collaborative approach by listening to my clients, establishing their goals, and then providing insight, wisdom, techniques and skills to help them overcome and move through their difficulties.

The stress of being a woman in today’s society is significantly overlooked. We’re expected to excel in school, have full-time careers, raise a family, keep the house clean and the pantry stocked, make homecooked meals, keep up with society’s ever-changing standard of “beauty,” exercise and eat healthy, maintain a close group of friends, and have strong relationships with our partners. We do all this while battling intrusive thoughts of perfectionism, low-self worth, poor body image, and never-ending guilt. Even when we feel like we’re drowning and there’s nothing left of us to give, we continue to put other's first.

CURRENT WAITING LIST- 4-5 WEEKS. Our first priority when we meet will be to establish trust and mutual respect in the relationship so that you begin to feel comfortable and safe. Therapy can be a rewarding experience but for many people it can feel daunting and unfamiliar at first. Our initial sessions will be focused on establishing consistency, predictibility and safety. I also believe that clients are best served by helping them to understand their strengths. Together we will create goals to help you become your "best self". I prefer to utilize an eclectic approach to therapy, teaching about attachment and neuroscience.
