Registered Professional Counsellor Trained in Psychotherapy
Amy began her journey into the therapeutic process in 1986 while studying Dance Therapy at York University. She graduated with an Honours B.A. and went on to pursue other interests in fashion and retail, but always held close the possibility of further exploring and applying the counseling knowledge she had gained at college.
Whilst working and raising two children, Amy developed support programs, including clothing drives and health and wellness counseling, to empower women in shelters to get back on their feet and reconnect with the world. Then in 2010, her world changed when she was presented with one of life’s challenges. Over the next two years, she became the caregiver of a close family member struggling with cancer. During these difficult years she recognized in her a passion for helping those in a time of crisis and also an intuitive skill to guide them through their journey to recovery. This led her to return to school and to continue what she had started 15 years before. At the Transformational Arts College, where she studied psychotherapy, she was given the tools to adapt her own life lessons and apply it to her own practice in an experiential learning setting. Her successful internship program following graduation quickly developed into a fast- growing private practice.
Amy brings to her practice a client centered mindfulness approach that creates a safe, nurturing and supportive environment for her clients to grow and transform in their own life journey.
