Hi, I’m Amy.
Embarking on a journey towards better mental health can be a transformative experience, and I would be honored to walk this path with you. With a fervent passion for supporting those grappling with depression and anxiety, I am deeply committed to helping individuals discover the resilient core that often lies dormant within them. While the ‘glass half full’ outlook might seem elusive at times, I truly believe that with consistent effort, anyone can cultivate this positive perspective.
My own journey as a mother of four has instilled in me a profound appreciation for the myriad challenges that both parents and children encounter in daily life. Striking the right balance while addressing the diverse needs and expectations of each family member is a delicate dance. It is this equilibrium that I view as being critical not only for fostering harmony within the family unit but also for the continued personal growth and fulfillment of each individual. Drawing from these experiences, I offer insights and strategies that are grounded in reality, aiming to nurture a sustainable balance for all family members.
I am proud to be an alumnus of the Phyllis and Harvey Sandler School of Social Work at Florida Atlantic University. My academic and professional journey has allowed me to serve a wide spectrum of individuals, from children and adolescents to adults. I hold the conviction that a strong, trusting therapeutic relationship forms the bedrock for any meaningful progress towards mental and emotional well-being. Over the years, I have also developed a particular fondness for working with the elderly and those with special needs. Their unique challenges and stories have enriched my practice, teaching me lessons in resilience, patience, and empathy.
But my commitment to wellness isn’t just limited to the mental and emotional spheres. I am a staunch advocate for the intertwined nature of physical and mental health. I firmly believe that nurturing our bodies can have profound benefits for our minds. This philosophy isn’t just something I preach; it’s a principle I live by. To maintain my own equilibrium, I prioritize physical activity in my daily routine. Whether it’s pushing my limits with high-intensity interval training sessions, soaking in the tranquility of nature during outdoor excursions, or challenging myself at the local rock climbing facility, these activities not only keep me fit but also provide a sanctuary for my mental rejuvenation.
To sum it up, my approach is holistic, considering every facet of an individual’s well-being. If you’re looking to cultivate a ‘glass half full’ mentality, find balance amidst life’s whirlwinds, or simply need a supportive space to navigate your challenges, I am here to assist and guide. Let’s embark on this journey towards a more balanced, fulfilled, and enriched life together.
