Hi, I'm Amy!
I’m a therapist who didn’t intend to be a therapist.
This career path wasn’t even on my radar (well, except for one letter I wrote to myself in the 8th grade, apparently). I started my first job out of college in property management, and quickly found myself drained by the rigid enforcement of rules with little room for compassion and understanding. I found my way to a career exploration group, took a strengths assessment, and came back with “empathy” as a top strength. It’s no joke when I say that I actually googled “what kind of jobs can you do with empathy”.
Fast forward a few steps, and here we are.
I love that my career allows me to walk alongside clients in a part of their life’s journey. I believe in the connectedness of humans. We all struggle. We all hurt. We all experience joys, too! I see your experiences as unique to you, and yet also connected in our humanity. I’ve seen it take a lot of weight off of clients when they begin to experience that what they are feeling in the moment is quite normal to feel. I appreciate watching clients build their self-compassionate voice and see themselves as enough, exactly as they are. You are enough, exactly as you are. I felt some of you all say “ick” to that one – it’s okay, we can get there! That said, we can accept that we are enough AND still want change. I enjoy journeying with clients through their growth in self-insight and personal changes, too.
Here’s my professional resume.
I received my Bachelor of Arts degree in Corporate Communications and Spanish from Lycoming College in Williamsport, PA. I completed my Master’s of Science in Counseling at Shippensburg University. I’m a Licensed Professional Counselor (PC015641) and am a National Certified Counselor (NCC# 644977). Since completing my graduate education, I have worked in a partial hospitalization program, school-based therapy, college counseling, and private practice.
It’s human nature to be curious.
“What’s my therapist like outside of work?”: I enjoy taking lots of walks with my dog, kayaking and paddleboarding, hiking, skiing, some days I like running (and some days I hate running), combat fitness classes, dancing around my living room, spending time with my family and friends, and most recently, taking classes in ballroom & latin dancing. I’m often excited by trying out new hobbies, particularly ones that keep me in motion.
