Amy’s strengths as a clinician are working with young adults, young couples, and women who have survived traumatic events, including ongoing interpersonal trauma, and who want support to process these experiences in order to show up more fully for their lives in the present. She also really enjoys supporting individuals and couples as they are making transitions in their lives and in their relationships, preparing for marriage, growing their family, navigating pregnancy and postpartum stages, striving to better integrate their careers and family, and deepening intimacy and connection with each other. Whether you are coming for individual or couples therapy, she will help you explore and improve the important relationships in your life, believing that relationships are the very core of mental health.
She also uses Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing Therapy (EMDR) to help you heal from trauma, manage anxiety, and internalize more adaptive views. It takes courage to reach out for support. Amy creates a calm and welcoming space to help you make the changes you desire for your life. With genuineness, compassion, empathy, guidance, and humor she will support you through a process of acceptance, healing, and growth. She enjoys working with clients from diverse backgrounds and seeks to create safe spaces for all clients. Amy has 15 years of experience working with individuals, couples, families, and communities as a social worker in the Philadelphia area.
Her primary experience prior to coming to Council for Relationships has included supporting survivors of intimate partner violence, developing health and social supports in immigrant and refugee communities, leading teams in non-profit organizations, and supervising beginner social workers. At Council for Relationships she has served in numerous roles including Staff Therapist, Associate Director of Clinical Services, Community Partnerships Initiative Clinical Specialist, Grant Writer, Extern Supervisor, and Racial Equity Working Group Convener.
