Walking Alongside You

Hello, I'm Amy and I'm so glad you're here! My passion is to help you feel more connected to yourself and the people you love and the world around you. Perhaps you are going through a rough patch and could use support and guidance, or perhaps you’ve struggled for many years and would like to see things differently, live things differently and are ready to “do therapy.” You are not broken. We each of us are inherently whole and in response to internalized messages and expected roles, or difficult situations and difficult histories, ill health, extreme stressors or trauma, our lives can feel broken. My warm and compassionate approach is focused on you as the expert of your own life, experience, and story. As a neurodivergent (ADHD) and neurodiverse-affirming therapist, I draw upon collaborative, evidence-based therapy practices to help you find balance and meaning, help you to identify and build on your strengths, while providing the support needed to get you there. Whatever you choose to work on together, I'd be honored to walk alongside you in your journey. I have worked 14 years in social services, and been a service user myself, so I understand the difficulty of navigating systems of care. I also know the healing power of therapy. Meeting with me is whatever you are needing at the time, which can change over time! Deeper therapeutic sessions when a situation becomes intense, weekly check-in calls, or touching down every few months for a refresher. Jump in for a first session anytime you're ready. Need to talk with soon? Just click "Request Appointment" for a time that works, up to an hour before we meet. Together we'll discuss your needs and what I have to offer -I can answer your questions, help you brainstorm a problem, scour the internet for a resource specific to your particular concern at the moment, or just plain old vent with a safe, neutral person. Use the time with me to talk about anything. * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * "Grief can be the garden of compassion.

I have an entirely paperless practice, everything can be done through the secure client portal. Offering telehealth and in-person sessions. I am licensed to practice in Oregon (L8049), Maine (#LC22205), and Vermont (LICSW Interim Telehealth License 089.0134936TELE) Please note: I work with individual adults and do not offer couples' or family counseling. I am unable to provide therapy to people who are experiencing active suicidal or homicidal ideation, people who have been hospitalized for mental health concerns within the past year, or people who are experiencing substance use disorders, trauma (DID), or eating disorders. These require specialized training and are outside of my scope of practice.
