Amy’s approach is to create a safe and nurturing environment where patients feel comfortable exploring themselves, increasing self-awareness and building on their strengths, to find healthier coping skills and develop a greater sense of self-efficacy. Then, depending on the patient’s needs, goals and circumstances, various therapeutic techniques are used to create an integrative approach that is empathic and solution-focused. The goal is for patients to feel empowered to use the strategies and insight developed in therapy to address their needs and overcome their challenges.
Amy is a Certified School Social Worker.
