Clinical Social Work Intern
Amy was born and raised in Reno and attended graduate school at Tulane University in New Orleans to study social work before returning home to Northern Nevada. She believes that all people have the capacity to grow and heal throughout the life cycle and that we learn and adapt through our relationships with others. Amy has experience working in schools and skilled nursing facilities; she also has lived experience in various industries prior to pursuing a career as a therapist and can relate to the demands and stresses of navigating our complex world. She frequently draws upon CBT, ACT, DBT, parts work, mindfulness, expressive arts, and bibliotherapy to help clients develop new ways of coping and make sense of their experience. Outside of work Amy enjoys time with her partner and her pets as well as being outside in the garden, reading, hiking, and pursuing creative projects.
