 B.A.

Associate Therapist

Meet  Amy Vorstadt!

 

Hi there, I’m Amy. Typically, this is the part where I tell you my qualifications for practicing psychotherapy. Although I do have some letters behind my name, and a few more coming in the future, that’s not what makes me qualified to do what I do. My life experiences are the reasons why I am here today.  

 

My passion for psychotherapy began before I could understand what therapy even was. As a child who experienced a great deal of trauma and who constantly felt misunderstood, I progressed into my teenage years and my adulthood only to find myself struggling more. Anxiety, low self-esteem, perfectionism, displaced anger, insecurity…all of it. 

One day, I made a choice. I decided I didn’t want to live in a constant state of fight or flight. I made the decision to begin therapy, which helped me change my life. I started by building a strong connection with my therapist, who provided me with a safe space to express myself, feel understood, and make changes that could be applied to all aspects of my life. It’s with grit and self-grace that I changed my life. Perseverance to change my mindset while realizing that self-compassion is equally important. 

 

I typically work with individuals 12 years and older who struggle with childhood trauma, anxiety, anger, low self-esteem, insecurity, mood disorders, obsessive-compulsive thoughts, and depression using various modalities of psychotherapy tailored to each of my clients’ individual needs. 

 

Much like my life experiences have led me to where I am today, yours have led you here. If you think we’d be a good fit, I’d love the opportunity to support and empower you through your own journey.
