Are you struggling with relationship issues? Do you find yourself overwhelmed and wish to create balance? Does it feel like you’re barely keeping your head above water as you try to navigate a transition in your life? I am here to support you!
I love working with clients on issues related to healthy relationships, boundary-setting, self-esteem, coping with life changes, managing anxiety, and reducing stress. Additionally, I am a certified domestic violence/sexual assault counselor.
My approach to therapy is warm, nurturing, and nonjudgmental. I believe that a trusting relationship between client and therapist is at the heart of successful counseling. I practice from a strengths-based, empowerment perspective and truly believe that you have everything in you necessary to live a satisfying life, but that sometimes those things are just hard to access and that’s where I come in! I enjoy helping clients discover coping strategies and tools that make sense for their unique situations and needs as everyone differs in what works for them.
Together, we can define goals for our work to get you where you’d like to be while creating positive, lasting changes in your life. Also, I really think that a bit of humor is absolutely necessary to deal with this crazy and sometimes overwhelming thing called “life”… I’m looking forward to meeting you!
Psychotherapy – online!
I provide individual counseling for Massachusetts and North Carolina residents as well as international clients through phone or secure video platform. You can use your mobile phone, tablet, or computer and access treatment from anywhere! I utilize modalities such as CBT, narrative therapy, strengths-based perspective, and more. I also offer supplemental messaging through HIPAA-compliant/encrypted email in case you’d like to connect between sessions or prefer writing out your thoughts.

Supervision for Clinicians
I enjoy supervising new (and seasoned!) clinicians who are in need of hours for licensure or would just like to grow in the field and expand their clinical skills. My supervision style has been described as supportive and nurturing by past supervisees. I’d love to help you reach your professional goals while building self-confidence and insight! I am able to meet at a variety of locations around the Boston/Cambridge area or can work with you through video conferencing as well.

I have had a great experience and have made a lot of progress in a short space of time. Amie is a really good counselor. Her responses are clear and insightful showing that she has taken the time to fully listen to what you said and reflect on it. She is a good communicator and is obviously a caring person. She has helped me to see things more clearly and pointed out things that had previously been invisible. -J.A.

I am very fussy about who I entrust with my counseling. There is such a fine balance between them feeling too distant and closed off, only summarizing, or taking over and saying too much. Amie strikes this balance perfectly, ensuring that you feel connected to her as a real person whilst allowing your story and issues to lead the sessions. I highly recommend her as an excellent counselor. -R.U.
I enjoy talking to Amie a lot. She is very personable and has helped me a lot already with keeping me accountable with my goals but also helping me stay kind to myself. -A.L.
