Prior to becoming a therapist Amy worked in a correctional setting for adult males and female inmates. After working with the families affected by incarceration and trauma Amy decided to focus more on family therapy and mental health. Amy has primarily worked with children and adolescents affected by trauma, autism spectrum disorders, depression, anxiety, and grief and loss. She has had experience working directly with child protection and providing in-home therapy services as well as offering supervision to new mental health clinicians.
Amy has received extensive training in Experiential Play therapy with founder Dr. Byron Norton as well as parent/child Filial Play therapy. Amy has experience working with children as young as 18 months and enjoys working to help support families in times of need.
