My Approach to Helping
Amelia chose to pursue a career in counseling because she wants to give others a safe place to be heard, experience their feelings, and find healing. She has always had a love for people and a desire to help others find clarity about their emotional and mental health. She believes the counseling relationship has the power to create lasting change. Amelia appreciates an insight-oriented approach to counseling. This approach seeks to help individuals understand some of our underlying motivations concerning why we “act” the way we do. The counseling modalities she uses are Psychodynamic therapy, Emotion- Focused Therapy, and Attachment theory. Amelia also uses yoga and mindfulness in her practice.
