Amy Terrell LMHC and EMDR and Beyond Clinical Director holds a BA in Human Service and an M.S. in Mental Health Counseling with a Specialization in Crisis Response and Trauma Treatment.  Amy is a Therapist, Agency Consultant, and Community Educator. She is also an EMDRIA approved EMDR therapist and consultant. Amy has received ongoing special training in order to provide EMDR therapy to children and adults with complex trauma.  Amy's mental health counseling practice has a focus on the treatment of trauma, with a great deal of experience working with violent crime survivors. She has clinical knowledge in the treatment of adults, adolescents and children with complex trauma, secondary trauma, dissociative disorders as well as depression, anxiety and other mental health disorders. Additional areas of specialization include therapeutic group facilitation and professional advocacy. Amy is a member of Chi Sigma Iota, a Counseling Academic and Professional Honor Society, and is a member of The American Counseling Association.

As a Relational-Cultural EMDR therapist, my goal is to help you experience true connectedness.  We will work to uncover your true potential and lead a life that is worth celebrating.  While we cannot change difficult situations of the past, we can work to let go of survival strategies that no longer serve you well.  Together we can gain insights to better understand and resolve challenges in your life. By applying complementary therapy approaches and techniques, we will unearth long-standing behavior patterns or negative perceptions that may be holding you back from experiencing a more fulfilling and meaningful life. If you are looking for hope after trauma or you are just ready to move in a new life direction, I look forward to working with you to achieve your goals. 

EMDR Intensive Therapy is offered in 3 to 4 hour time blocks for individuals that would benefit from more therapy in a shorter time period.  This is often a great fit for mental health professionals seeking their own healing. An initial meeting is required to see if this type of therapy approach is the best fit for you.
