Amy earned her Master’s degree in Texas and began her career in social services working for a local Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault Services program where she developed a passion for working with survivors. During her career, she has provided individual and group counseling to adults and youth, provided intensive case management and supportive services to families and at-risk youth, as well as managed two domestic violence shelters, a transitional living program and a program for homeless, chronically mental ill women. Amy is currently working with survivors to educate them on the impact of trauma and exploitation and helping them identify healthy vs. unhealthy influences. Through psychoeducation and the use of curriculum such as Healing Trauma, Seeking Safety, Mindfulness, and life skills journals, survivors can learn how trauma has affected various aspects of their lives and learn how to lead a safe, healthy lifestyle.
Amy is passionate about helping others discover their potential through hope, healing and support. And when she is not at CCAHT, she is spending time with her significant other and three dogs, and searching for vintage treasures.
