Amy will work with you to build skills that strengthen your wellbeing, enhance communication, and increase your understanding of how your environment has impacted you as an individual, family member, and community member.
For many years, Amy worked with people healing from past traumatic experiences, identity-based conflict, generational trauma, and the loss of loved ones to violence. She works with adults with many different racial, gender, religious, sexual orientation identities and is passionate about working with white women who are invested in increasing their racial identity awareness and processing the ways that white supremacy shows up in their lives and work.
Amy received her Bachelor’s degree from Columbia College with a self-designed major called, “Unequally Empowered People of the United States of America” which focused on power and privilege.
