About Amy

Amy is a Somatic Trauma Recovery Specialist (TCTSY-F, SEP), offering one on one sessions and group facilitation. Amy’s work is informed by trauma and attachment theory and delivered through a trauma sensitive and anti-oppressive lens focusing on parallel personal agency within a safe relationship.  TCTSY is an evidenced based trauma treatment modality that acknowledges that complex trauma occurs in relationship and is therefore renegotiated through safety in relationship. Through a process of deep listening and attunement, Amy emphasizes power sharing, choice making, present moment awareness and taking effective action.  Somatic Experiencing facilitates the completion of self-protective motor responses and the release of thwarted survival energy bound in the body,  addressing the root cause of trauma symptoms. This is approached by gently guiding clients to develop increasing tolerance for difficult bodily sensations and suppressed emotions.  Amy is versed in IFS (Internal Family Systems) and TIST (Trauma Informed Stabilization Treatment) and uses parts work as a way of healing the fragmented self. By offering different modalities including embodied boundaries and table/touch work, clients are able to be met wherever they may be in their trauma recovery process. To learn more about what treatment may be useful to your recovery, you are welcome to schedule a free consultation.
