About Amy

Amy is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker offering psychotherapy, consultation, and training throughout the Chicagoland area. She completed her Master of Social Work and clinical training at Loyola University of Chicago, where she specialized in work with individuals and families working through chronic and terminal illness, aging, life transitions, grief and loss. She has worked with individuals and families in a variety of settings, including community agencies, home hospice and palliative care, and long term care. Additionally, she has worked as a Field Consultant and Graduate Student Instructor at The University of Chicago, The School of Social Service Administration.

Amy has more than 13 years of clinical experience providing support to individuals and families impacted by grief and loss, caring for ill and aging family members, working through life-stage transitions, experiencing depression and anxiety, coping with chronic and life-limiting illnesses, and moving through the journey of dementia.

Amy’s practice approach is collaborative and strengths-based. She strives to create a safe, and open space for sharing, and approaches the therapeutic relationship with warmth and authenticity. Each person’s story is unique, and Amy works together with clients to identify the strategies and approaches that will bring them the most benefit and comfort. Her approach is grounded in relational, family systems, psycho-dynamic, and narrative theories. Some of the most common techniques she utilizes include mindfulness exercises, cognitive-behavioral tools, creative arts approaches, narrative therapy, and humor to facilitate exploration together. Additionally, her work often involves exploring grief, loss, healing and resilience as part of the journey through life’s transitions.
