With more than 20 years in the field, and 16 of those in direct counseling work I have come to the conclusion that everyone struggles a bit from time to time. I have worked with numerous families, moving through the trials and tribulations of childhood, adolescence and young adulthood. Parenting isn't easy, and things have become even more complicated with blended family situations and technological advances. Kids have access to more information and parents have more things to worry about. Life is very fast paced and staying connected to our families, friends and loved ones can be a challenge. I've worked with kids, adults, couples and families from all backgrounds and environments, working with them as they find their way through the challenges of making ends meet, keeping the faith, believing in something greater, and adjusting to change, loss, and frustrations of life.
As a Military Spouse, step-parent, and a biological parent at Advanced Maternal Age, I can truly relate to the many toils of parenting and relationships. Though no one issue is the same, my personal and professional background gives me a unique perspective not often found in many helping professionals.
It takes bravery and humility to reach out for help, and few of us are capable of recognizing that we just don't need to do it alone. My role as a therapist is to help people find their way. I can guide you through the process and provide support as we figure out together what needs to be done to reach your goals. Sometimes, all we need is direction. Other times we need a little more than that, and I'm here to help you figure it out.

Amy has been amazing! With her, I have learned to find myself and my likes/dislikes. She has helped me grow my confidence and do things I never imagined. She keeps me centered and encourages me with all of my decisions. I couldn't have asked for a better therapist. THANK YOU, AMY!
