I wish I could show you, when you are lonely or in darkness, the astonishing light of your own being.
— Hafiz

The first thing you might notice about Amy is her bright blue eyes. The next might be the keenness of her vision as she sorts through your tale to quickly identify the crux of the matter. With this gift of clarity, she sees into the confusion, fear, and doubt, and illuminates a path forward. With intelligence, sensitivity, and a warm, easy laugh, she systematically lifts people up and sets them on their feet. Amy will support you in identifying your many strengths and gifts, and will help you succeed in expressing them in all areas of your life. Her approach is collaborative: you as the client set goals for the unique ways in which your life can be happier and more fulfilling, while she provides guidance and perspective on your progress.

As your therapist, Amy helps you find tools to tolerate the anxiety that can come with life's changes, planned or unexpected. She is particularly skilled at working with clients experiencing questions around life's purpose, including professional direction and relationship issues. She is gifted at guiding individuals through transitions, including navigating divorce, and offers co-parenting support. Amy is adept at working with cross-cultural situations, and comfortable with clients for whom English is a second language. She herself is fluent in Spanish.
