More About Amy

A student of life, Amy has opened herself to the lessons of life experiences and the full range of emotions, which, when resisted, caused her great suffering. These lessons have laid the foundations of empathy and compassion which drive her to the calling of service to others who are struggling with the challenges that life can often present. She noticed that tiny glimmers of presence and peace came at moments when she was tuned into her body, mind, and soul on her mat in yoga class, which ultimately called her to a 200-hour registered yoga teacher training in 2017. It is through her own healing and recovery journey that she believes in the merging of western and alternative modalities to create a more balanced and holistic approach which attends to all aspects of a person. This led Amy to return to school and earn her certificate in the Center for the Application of Substance Abuse Technologies program at UNR. Amy has been working in the field of addiction treatment for approximately two years. Utilizing a client-centered approach, it is her heart’s desire to create a safe and nonjudgmental space which has the potential to allow for deep healing and transformation.
