Amy is dedicated to cultivating a space where people feel genuinely heard and understood. She works to offer a comfortable space marked by empathy and acceptance, in which her clients are welcomed to voice issues and concerns. She enjoys working with youth, adolescents, adults and families and brings a gentle and empathetic presence to each client session. She understands that clients may desire to integrate spirituality into their therapy, and is willing to use her Christian faith, and other spiritual resources to guide clients through difficulty and challenge.
Amy received her Master’s degree from John Brown University with a joint focus in Community Counseling and Marriage and Family Therapy in 2005. She completed her Bachelor of Science from John Brown University in Psychology as well as an Associate of Arts degree in Cultural Studies in 2001.
