Amy’s pursuit of a Master’s in Counseling degree was born out of her love of supporting others and encouraging them on their journey. She employs a person-centered approach to counseling by meeting her clients where they are at and working with them to develop a strengths-based treatment plan.
Amy is a certified teacher with a B.A. in Early Childhood Education and a minor in Psychology who has spent over a decade working with young children and families in various capacities. Her breadth of real-life experience has deepened her awareness of the complexity of the human experience and how important it is to keep an open mind.
Amy has experience supporting those with ADHD, autism-spectrum disorder, anxiety, depression, infertility and/or unexplained infertility (including grief surrounding miscarriage), and survivors of sexual assault. She also recently completed training in A.B.A. Behavior Therapy.
A message from Amy: I believe you are valuable and needed in our world, just the way you are. All cultures hold unique strengths, and we thrive when we embrace one another. Although I live my life from a spiritual point of view, I cherish diversity of thought and belief. I am thrilled to have the opportunity to intern at YFC and learn from our wonderful staff and clinicians.
In my spare time I enjoy reading non-fiction, writing, marveling at nature, and running with my pup.
I look forward to working with you!
