Professional statement

Amy Bruce is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker located in New York, NY. Amy is passionate about helping clients who experience depression, including as a result of grief or trauma. Many of Amy’s clients feel overwhelmed with feelings of sadness, loneliness, disconnection from loved ones, frustration, or a lack of motivation. Other clients find themselves experiencing panic attacks that leave them unable to participate in daily life.

Amy helps these clients by providing them with a warm, nonjudgmental space to talk about their feelings. Her approach to therapy is psychodynamic, meaning that she helps clients make connections between what happens in their lives and their innermost beliefs, desires, and wants. She places heavy emphasis on having a quality therapeutic relationship based on trust and mutual regard. Her main goal is to help clients learn how to accept themselves and to practice self-care.

Amy earned a Master’s degree in Social Work from the University of Texas at Austin. She has a certification from the Metropolitan Institute for Training Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy. Her style is collaborative, patient, and kind. She helps clients to break out of negative emotional cycles and to move forward with their lives.

Message to clients

My hope for my clients is that they feel seen, understood and accepted for exactly who they are. I believe in the power of relationships to effect change, and that a warm and empathic relationship with me as your therapist will give you the support you need to work toward the life you want and deserve.
