Amy believes that therapy is not only the process of learning about yourSelf in relation with others, but therapy is about CHANGE--taking action and finding solutions to live your life more fully. Amy’s style is direct, yet supportive. She uses a strength based approach, with the belief that each person has inside themselves the wisdom they need to heal. Therapy is the process of bringing that wisdom to life.
