Hi there! I’m Amy.
I help clients regulate their stress response more consistently and independently so they can feel, think and connect better.
I work with clients in two ways. First, with stress and wellness coaching I help clients work with their stress response instead of against it. From here, they have greater capacity to reach health and wellness goals of all types. Second, as a Safe and Sound Protocol (SSP) Practitioner, I am certified to offer Dr. Stephen Porges’ non-invasive intervention based on his polyvagal theory. The SSP uses filtered music through an app on your phone.
My certification is from the Functional Medicine Coaching Academy whose training is offered in partnership with the Institute for Functional Medicine. I have a Specialization in Positive Psychology from the University of Pennsylvania. Additionally, I’m in the process of obtaining the gold standard for health coaches: the National Board Certification credential (NBC-HWC), offered in collaboration with the National Board of Medical Examiners.
As your coach, I’m your partner as you climb mountains of wellness. You plan the trek. You take the steps. I help you navigate obstacles, watch your footing, and remind you of your tools for the journey. I’m not the track coach with the whistle yelling at you to run faster or the teacher giving you a health report card. I’m your ally in taking small steps to deep health.
I get to help you unlock motivation, to dream, and to ask “What if?” My favorite thing is celebrating those unique strengths of yours. I believe the beautiful traits at the core of who you are form the bridge you cross to get from a ho-hum here, to a heart-singing there.
