Mental Health Counseling & Health Realization Therapy

Just as we take care of our bodies by exercising, consuming nutritious food, and sleeping adequately, we also need to care for our minds in similar ways. Paying attention to our thinking, monitoring what we consume, and allowing regular time to quiet down are important for our mental health. Many of us go to gyms and yoga studios to keep fit and see a doctor when we have a particular concern. We can also benefit from both regular and as-needed mental health support.

Intuitive Readings

Amy's goal is to remind you about your truth. She shares information and guidance in a way that helps illuminate your path and motivate you to move forward with ease, peace, and joy. She delivers profound intuitive messages with a very “down to earth” human approach so you can understand the information and easily apply it to your life.

Past-Life Regression Therapy

A past-life regression session is a therapeutic way to identify, process, and transform unresolved issues, beliefs, blocks, or attachments.  It is a very simple process that involves going back, remembering what happened, and looking at how you processed the event at the time. If you have not finished something from a time earlier in your life, or even from a previous life, it is possible that you have brought it forward to work on now.

Rosen Method Somatic Bodywork & Self-Led Transformational Counseling

Rosen method bodywork balances the nervous system and removes blocks, limiting beliefs, emotional tension and disconnection, unconscious patterns, and pain.   A session engages emotional mindfulness in the embodied self to release stress, old emotions, and beliefs that are stored in the body. This process can create immediate, long-lasting relief from the pain that often accompanies long-held emotional tension.

Hypnotherapy releases mental and emotional blocks that prevent us from achieving joy and happiness. It is a modality that addresses stress management, anxiety, fears, phobias, weight management, smoking cessation, sleep conditions, and whatever else stands between you and the life you desire. The client and therapist create a plan of empowerment. During a hypnotherapy session you will attain a relaxed state of mind, somewhere between an alert conscious state and sleep. Together with guidance from your therapist, you will work with the subconscious mind to eliminate emotional blocks, reprogram your mind from negative to positive thinking and instill new habits by using a combination of concentration, relaxation, suggesting, and intention. This develops a path to realize your goals and to live your life with joy, freedom, purpose, and direction.
