"You are not broken...Your life is not a problem
to be solved but a gift to be opened." 
- Wayne Muller, Legacy of the Heart
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
My hope is to help you navigate the feelings, struggle or challenges you are currently experiencing to ultimately support your growth, healing, insight, or transformation. 

  • Are you feeling tired, sick, or just "off"?
  • Have you felt lost, damaged, broken, or not like yourself?
  • Are you confused and unsure about your purpose, pathway, or life decisions?
  • Have you struggled to feel present, connected, or a part of your life, work or relationships?
  • Are you tired of suffering and feel like everything you try just doesn't work?
  • Have you been feeling stuck, immobilized, and unmotivated despite a desire to get better?
  • Are your relationships suffering or strained?
If any of these scenarios fit for you and you are ready to be supported and guided in making some changes, I may be a fit for you.

My specialty is in working on persistent blocks that keep you from being at your best and using creative means to get you well!

Message from Amy

While we all experience times where we feel broken and beaten down by the ways of life, we all also embody great resilience to overcome the struggles of life.  Feeling broken, also doesn't mean that we are broken, defective, or damaged. Everyone has the power and ability to heal within them, I am simply guiding and teaching you how to reconnect to your authentic, natural healing and restorative abilities. I am supporting you in feeling whole again.

As a counselor over the past 10 years, I have assisted people in dealing with a wide range of emotional, interpersonal, and behavioral problems, helping people improve their overall health and well-being.  I have been devoted to exploring spirituality, mind-body connections, and healing as both a professional therapist and in my personal journey of healing and recovery.  On my journey, I have discovered many methods to support my own growth that aren't simply traditional counseling practices and I recently decided to focus my work on uncovering the core limitations and blocks that keep you from being well; helping you manifest your dreams; and living up to your fullest purpose and potential. I believe everyone is worthy of reaching for and experiencing their dreams, feeling fulfilled on all levels. 

I value using various creative healing and integrative modalities to assess where you are blocked mentally, emotionally, physically or spiritually; uncovering underlying and persistent issues that have kept you from healing, growing or moving forward in your life. Many clients come to me because they have sought and used various modalities to get better, but nothing has stuck or really got to the root problem. I also certainly welcome newcomers to healing as it would be great if your first experience would help you to alleviate the root conditions!

As you seek various wellness services to help you feel better and to alleviate symptoms (which may include counseling, massage therapy, yoga, exercise, nutritional counseling, among others), sometimes what may be neglected, even unintentionally, are the root issues that are manifesting the symptoms in the first place. My approach is not in simply helping you feel better or treating symptoms – instead, it’s on tuning in to what you are experiencing in your body as a clue to emotional, mental, or spiritual distress and giving you tools to release those hidden and unresolved experiences.  Much of what we experience in our body is not simply a physical problem, it is often a manifestation of many layers of life experiences and our distorted thoughts, beliefs, sense of meaning; dissatisfaction; emotional distress; or trauma. This is the “dis-ease” and discomfort we experience in mind, emotions, and spirit that often manifests as physical “disease”.  It is possible to support the alleviation or reduction of physical symptoms (including pain, panic attacks, cravings, addictions, and compulsions) as you heal emotionally and work on experiencing fulfillment in more areas of your life. Our experience of dissatisfaction in our lives has a significant impact on our overall health.

My specialty and unique approach to sessions is focused on using energy work (reiki) with all other methods to uncover root issues; challenge you in areas where you may be resistant or holding on to negativity or defense mechanisms; release emotional, mental or physical tension; connect you with and strengthening your spiritual resources (whatever those may be personally for you); uncover your purpose and passions in life; and identify actions to take to experience fulfillment. This could involve uncovering unresolved pain, trauma, addictions, grief and loss, or any other number of unresolved issues. Sessions usually provide you with a depth of information and tools that you can use to take action toward alleviating each block that is identified, which leaves you feeling empowered and equipped to handle the problems in your life. 

What makes my sessions different from typical talk therapy is that clients often do not need to verbally process much of what is happening – they just have a physical or emotional release and sometimes give a few words to it.  That is often the kind of release and healing we are looking for in therapy anyhow– so its healthy and powerful when this happens in the more immediacy and clients report feeling lighter, supported, and safe in that experience. My services can be your sole therapy support or as an addition to counseling work you are doing with another therapist where you may feel like you are stuck – I am happy to collaborate with your current therapist on a short-term or long-term! The more support you have to get well, the better!
