Amy is a wonderful therapist and has changed my quality of life in a short time. She has provided me tools that I didn’t even know I needed. I have an undergraduate degree in psychology so I always felt like I knew tips and tricks to improve my well being. Well, when you have a therapist like Amy, it is like having someone who gives you a key that unlock a whole new box of answers. She truly is amazing, a great listener, and so kind. When I talk to her, I feel like I’m talking to a friend.

Helps me get to the true root of my problems, taking things a few steps deeper than previous therapy work. I'm confident in her ability to guide me through the process of understanding certain behaviors, re-aligning the parts of me that do not serve me in their current roles, and learning to navigate extreme life stressors. I'm also confident the results will be long-lasting.
