Amy is a Supervisee in Clinical Social Work for the Wise Family. She was born and raised in Arlington, VA. In her free time, she loves to grab coffee with friends, curl up with a good book, or snuggle with her cat.
Amy completed her undergraduate degree at The College of William & Mary and completed her Master’s in Social Work with a trauma certificate from Boston College. She loved the beauty of crisp New England autumns and had lots of fun exploring the city of Boston. However, she did not enjoy shoveling her car out of the snow every morning during the winter. She is thrilled to be back home in Virginia closer to family.
Throughout graduate school, Amy gained experience in outpatient children’s therapy, group therapy, and psychiatric inpatient care for adults living with mood disorders. She hopes to become certified in play therapy and trauma-focused cognitive behavioral therapy.
