I believe that all of us have the ability to be great, but there are challenges that get in the way. My passion is to help you realize who you are and what you can accomplish despite those challenges. I want to motivate and help you to do the work you need to be a better person, spouse, partner, parent, or friend. I know that we all have things going on, my goal is to be there for you through it, good or bad. Building you up or being there through a tough time that's what therapy is for.
Connecting with my clients is very important, and I feel that laughter is something that unites all people and crosses a number of barriers. During therapy, I look for appropriate opportunities to laugh, make connections, break down barriers, then over come struggles and help you grow to stand on your own.
I have worked with individuals and families through a variety of challenging situations including marital issues, motivation, anxiety, developmental disabilities and Autism. Working through challenges is a humbling and rewarding experience. I have become passionate about my work of helping and supporting others. I look forward to supporting you in this time.

Amy has been managing the insurance, claims and billing since its start in 2017. With a hard-work ethic and resilient spirit, she enjoys the challenge of chasing after non-paid claims,  investigating denials and following-up with insurance companies (sometimes weekly); all for that sense of accomplishment when the "claim paid" notification is sent her way. She thrives on connection and helping others to succeed.

She started Sound Family Therapy Billing Solutions in February of 2021, with the mission to provide a claims and billing service for mental health therapists that allows them to focus more on their patients and less on the complex insurance matters of their practices.
