Client Focus and Specializations
Amy is dedicated and passionate about helping individuals gain insight and understanding of their strengths, goals, and hope by working on and personalized goals and objectives. Life can be a challenge, both positive and negative. At times we may not know how to help ourselves become unstuck or how to work through life and asking for help can be difficult. As human beings, we are designed to make connections with others through shared experiences but a great appreciation of our differences. Amy works with her clients to get unstuck in unhealthy patterns that are holding them back from the life they want. Amy specializes in substance use disorders, anxiety, depression, and life transitions. She has a special interest in working with individuals with trauma, veterans, and individuals/couples struggling with sexual issues in their lives. When working with Amy you will experience a collaborative approach that is authentic, warm, non-judgmental and aims to create a safe environment for growth and change.
Amy Utilizes the following evidence-based treatment modalities:
Cognitive Behavioral Therapist (CBT)
Motivational Interviewing (MI)
Amy is a clinical social worker with a passion for serving individuals, families and communities. She believes in the power of therapy to help people heal and grow, and she is passionate about helping others find their path to wellness.
She graduated from The Ohio State University with a Master's degree in Clinical Social Work and has been working as a therapist since 2010. She is currently pursuing my doctorate in Community Care & Counseling with a focus on trauma. In her work with clients, she uses evidence-based treatment approaches to help individuals resolve issues such as anxiety, depression, grief/loss, trauma and substance use disorders.
In addition to her clinical work, her goal is to become an expert in trauma-informed care through both education and experience so that she can help others improve their understanding of trauma-related issues as well as provide them with tools for treating these conditions effectively. She wishes to do this not only for the clients she serves in therapy but to also serve other clinical mental health professionals through supervision and training.
