Amy first began her work in the counseling industry in 1993 by volunteering at a local Domestic Violence Shelter. From there she went to work in a Residential Treatment Center for Troubled Youth and then continued on in her work with Children, Teens and their Families working in a myriad of settings, such as Schools, Homes, Group Homes as well as In Office. She also returned to her prior experience working with Domestic Violence as she co-facilitated a group for female victims of Domestic Violence.
Amy continued to gain experience as she branched out into the Private Practice Setting in 2004. Here she learned to incorporate her love for animals by participating in Equine Assisted Therapy Family Sessions, and often used her own dogs for Canine Assisted Therapy with select clients. It was also at this time that she began to work with a local church and donated her time to a counseling ministry where she first began to incorporate her Formal Education with her Biblical Knowledge. It was also during these years when she first began to explore Online Counseling.
In 2008 Amy joined forces with the Family Advocacy Program aboard a Marine Corps Installation and began working with Military Personnel and their families. Here she gained a wealth of experience in the Domestic Violence field, PTSD and Combat Trauma. She eventually took a leadership role in the development and implementation of the Community Counseling Center aboard the Marine Corps Installation, Camp Pendleton.
