When asked what she’s awesome at helping clients with, Amy replied, “If you were to ask my clients this question, they would tell say that I have a calming presence that provides a safe space from them to share their stories…But since you are asking me, I would say that I believe strongly in the power of a therapeutic alliance. My clients know that I will support them unconditionally, but, when necessary, I will challenge them in order to assist in achieving their goals. I also believe in the power of laughter and incorporate humor when I can as I have been known to have a quick wit.”
