Professional statement

Amy Audet is a Licensed Independent Clinical Social Worker. She welcomes adult clients by providing individually tailored one-on-one sessions. Amy works best with those that are looking for relief from anxiety, stress and overwhelm. Her clients come to therapy to gain clarity, be more mindful in their choices and learn to radically accept themselves. Amy is focused on helping others direct their energy in useful ways, focus on what really matters to them and make choices that are aligned with their values.

Amy uses both acceptance-based and existential therapies which encourages clients to look at the “big picture” of their lives rather than just daily frustrations and challenges. This can help individuals gain perspective and feel more grounded in their everyday lives. Clients learn to sit with and understand their suffering and develop intentional ways to practice self-care. Amy has advanced training in the areas of mindfulness and movement based practices and is a registered Yoga teacher. She also has an understanding of the intersection of mental health and addictive behaviors.

Amy received her undergraduate degrees in both Psychology and Social work as well as her Masters degree in Social work while in Providence, RI. Having been through many waves of change in her own life, she is poised to help clients who are struggling with stage of life issues as well as those in a state of transition.

Amy’s private practice is currently based in Southern California. She maintains licensure in Rhode Island and California and provides services via tele-health for clients to offer increased flexibility.


Message to clients

You’re looking for a therapist. Maybe you’ve been to therapy before and maybe you haven’t. Either way, one thing is for sure- chemistry matters. You want to make sure you can show up as yourself, be honest about what is going on and get the help you need. I will be a good fit for you if you are looking for a therapist who is down to earth, who will give you time and space to figure things out and who will call you out when necessary. I like to ensure I am a good fit for the clients I work with so if you are interested in working together I encourage you to schedule a brief phone call with me so we can chat about communication style, preferences and goals.
