Amy F. Hanson-Akins is not currently accepting new clients.
Welcome and thank you for visiting my page. I have a passion for helping those who are feeling overwhelmed and stuck in worry, fear and negative beliefs and behaviors to find ways to heal and thrive in all areas of life. I believe in YOU, and your capacity to heal, grow and change! My goal is to create a safe and authentic environment that promotes a strong and healthy therapeutic alliance that creates the container for deep work and sustained healing. I give you tools and skills to quickly feel relief and freedom over thoughts, feelings and behaviors that are no longer working for you.
My education, training and being present with client's in their healing has strengthened my belief in the ability for all of us to change and heal. I work with those with anxiety, OCD, eating disorders, body image disturbance and depression to quickly alleviate symptoms and become clear on a plan to create your big life and how to get there.
I invite you to reach out to discuss how I can partner with you to develop a deeper knowledge of yourself and your situation, identify and learn how to change patterns, behaviors, heal unresolved negative experiences that are keeping you stuck and repeating the same patterns. I thank you for the opportunity to hear from you!
