Upon completion of graduate school in 2007, Amy joined Princeton House’s Women’s Programs as a Primary Therapist where she worked extensively with women suffering from trauma, anxiety, depression, and substance abuse.
Amy’s passion to provide support to children and families compelled her to join a public school district committed to offering mental health services to students and guidance for parents. The ability to work with students in their natural school environment afforded Amy the ability to better understand children’s and teens’ day to day experiences and stressors.

A Word from Amy:
“I’ve always known from a young age that I wanted to pursue a career where I would have an impact in helping other people. Originally my plan was to study Art Therapy, but I decided to broaden my horizons and went to Columbia for the MSW program. The richness of New York City’s vibrancy and diversity really resonated with me. Early on in my social work studies, I provided therapy to children of many different backgrounds who had been exposed to domestic violence and this experience then led me to work with women to overcome their own trauma histories. I often get feedback that I bring calm to a room and I strive to be a patient, open listener. My priority is to offer support and empathy for people going through challenging times in their lives. I will meet you at whatever stage you are in to help gently guide you through and make the positive change you desire. If you are new to therapy, testing out the waters for the first time – I’m a great fit for you. I don’t have any expectations when you come in my room except for you to be 100% who you are, no matter what “state” you’re in. If you are a parent looking for a therapist for your child – I find success with children and teens that are struggling with anxiety, going through a divorce situation or having difficulty coping with other life stressors. You may be a parent who is looking for a neutral person to provide guidance on how to handle those tricky parenting moments. You may be someone who sees that their child has a lot of strength but could also benefit from outside support, like everyone does from time to time. This is a collaborative process and I invite you to be prepared to come in to participate in the journey alongside your child.”
