My Approach to Helping

In her clinical practice, Amy Kreins, PhD, delivers cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) and other evidence-based treatments to adult, seniors, and teens with a wide range of emotional, behavioral, and adjustment problems, such as anxiety, stress, depression, and relationship problems.

She tries to build on an individual's strengths and individualize therapy to each person's need. She believes that psychotherapy can help individuals most effectively use their resources to increase self-understanding, to improve decision-making, to solve problems, and to create paths to the lives they want. She also uses mindfulness training to help her clients live in the moment. Her approach is compassionate and nonjudgmental.
