I practice Emotion Focus Couples Therapy (EFT). It is an Evidence Based Practice therapy with a 76% success rate with couples who complete their treatment plan. I collaborate with distressed couples and (individuals) whose relationships are "stuck" or are affected by the echoes of trauma. EFT focuses on how, couples experience their relationship and how they link together their emotional experience and express those emotions together as a couple. Emotions are the experience-the dance between adult lovers.
EFT is systemic because it looks at the whole relationship and the patterns the relationship present, and how couples get "stuck" in a cycle of negative emotion. The EFT therapist can help partners shift and change the music of the dance, which creates a more positive bonding pattern. I also treat Substance Use Disorder (SUD) and Personality Disorders (PD)
Equally, I counsel individuals in relationships with SUD's and PD's and the anxiety and depression created because them. I also treat individuals suffering with grief, loss, and those on their personal adventure after experiencing a death, divorce, job loss or the harm from losing an intimate relationship.
Everyone has a different threshold for uncomfortable experiences, thoughts, and feelings. It is because of her belief of these varying thresholds that Amy enters every therapeutic relationship and session with an abundance of curiosity. Amy prioritizes joining with her clients and collaboratively discovering new perspectives, possibilities, and methods that allow her clients to create a way of life for themselves that feels “better.”
Amy earned her undergraduate degree in Psychology from Florida International University and directly after, she earned her Masters of Science in Marriage and Family Therapy from Nova Southeastern University with a specialization in Medical Family Therapy. She has extensive experience working with child and adolescent trauma, grief, and family/couple relationships. Due to her personal experience with infertility, she is passionate about offering a very specialized approach to couples and individuals struggling to expand their families.
Amy works with a relaxed but focused approach and believes that there are endless ways for different people to feel better and address their struggles. She strongly believes her primary purpose as a therapist is to assist her clients in the discovery of their own solutions.
