Amie's Statement On Treatment Philosophy:
I believe that therapy is a collaborative process and that all people are capable of healing and growth. I consider myself responsible for maintaining a safe holding environment for the therapeutic process to unfold, while also providing guidance, structure, and security when necessary. My approach is foremost informed by the needs of my patients, and draws from a variety of therapeutic orientations, including psychodynamic, feminist, relational, existential, and narrative theories. I practice from a sex positive perspective, and am proud to welcome lesbian, gay, bisexual, queer, intersex, and trans* individuals into my practice as well those involved in non-traditional models of relationships, such as open relationships or polyamory. I am mindful of the effects that racism, sexism, transphobia and other forms of discrimination and intolerance have on my patients, and I am committed to working toward social justice in my therapeutic work.
