Using a special combination of shamanic healing, Jungian studies, and clinical counseling for soul retrieval, Amy helps individuals regain a sense of empowerment and personal authority as they heal from trauma, recover from addictions, and address specific issues involving relationships, depression, anxiety, grief and loss.

Amy is a therapist with a unique ability to sense and support the natural healing path of the soul. From adult women and men, couples, adults in transition, adults in recovery, and trauma survivors, to other therapists, practitioners, and mental health institutions, her practice has spanned a variety of individual and community settings over the past 30+ years. She has extensive teaching experience bridging clinical and spiritual traditions, and has given training sessions to a wide range of practitioners throughout the western United States.

Amy's unique approach and philosophy are best summarized in her own words: "Underneath the wound there is a natural and resilient soul wanting to heal and thrive. As we do the emotional and physical work, the core self naturally emerges. Gradually we learn to support a new relationship to the soul as thee experience of our life changes." It is her life's work and passion to guide souls towards this perfect state of inner health.

After receiving her M.S. in Counseling from the University of Utah, Amy began her practice. Seeking to take her clinical training further, she studied with the Foundation for Shamanic Studies, completing their three year program and Masters Class to become a Certified Shamanic Counselor, and continuing on as a faculty member until 2006. Amy has also completed a ten year Jungian Study with the Center for Transpersonal Therapies.


"After many years of therapy, I still carried a numb place deep inside I could not reach. In conversations in our sessions and healing rituals, Amy helped to discover lost parts of my soul. She guided me in retrieving my soul. This work with her was life changing." - J. Q. Santa Fe, NM

"In my work with Amy, I discovered a deep spiritual wound from childhood. By identifying survivior's guilt and my religious shame, I was finally able to put words to my belief that I do not belong here. I have been able to reclaim my authority to live in a new and meaningful way."

- G.B. Salt Lake City, Utah

"It was through a major breakdown in my life that I discovered my true nature. Working with Amy helped me change my spiritual relationship into a meaningful practice in daily life. Her words of wisdom and guidance led though the darkest night of my soul. I am able to feel and love life again." - A.C.  Philadelphia, PA
