Biography: As a Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor and registered yoga teacher, Amy views clients holistically, tailoring treatment to the individual’s needs.

Therapy begins in creating a space of acceptance and safety, where individuals can lean into self-exploration to build and restore meaningful change. Combining traditional talk therapy, mindfulness, and movement, Amy guides healing using all that is available for knowledge and insight.
