Hi, I’m Amy
Ready to befriend your body and biology to find deep health?
I help clients address stress, cultivate wellness and create a life they love.
My approach blends strengths-based coaching with the science of self-compassion, flourishing and the mind + body connection. I’m passionate about the nervous system and see it as the foundation of all health.
I am a National Board Certified Health and Wellness Coach and Certified Safe and Sound Protocol Practitioner. My coach training is from the Functional Medicine Coaching Academy.
Reduce Stress + Enhance Resilience
I’m trained to deliver Dr. Stephen Porges’ Safe and Sound Protocol™ to clients online. It is a non-invasive intervention based on his Polyvagal theory. During sessions, clients use an app on their phones to listen to filtered music. SSP acts as an auditory vagal nerve stimulator. By creating a sense of safety in the body, clients are better able to regulate their own nervous systems. I am able to offer SSP to adults, teen and child populations.
Why I’m a Coach
It’s my own health journey that brought me to coaching. I’m no stranger to the host of frustrating and oftentimes misunderstood symptoms that come with thyroid issues, and I know firsthand the cost of burnout from unmanaged stress. After struggles with mold illness, I became an affiliate member of the International Society for Environmentally Acquired Illness (ISEA), a community of medical and environmental professionals focused on education, practice and research within Lyme, co-infections and mold illness.
An Educator and Team Player
I’m a coach and an educator. My 15 years teaching and leading in public, private and nontraditional classroom settings has given me insight into what the body and brain needs in order to learn and thrive. I have special interest and experience in supporting families with students that display sensory processing issues and challenging behaviors. I find delight in joining a family’s support team in the role of coach and/or Safe and Sound Protocol Practitioner.
A Lifelong Learner
I have a high love of learning and am always finding new ways to support clients. I have completed various trainings with practitioners and thought leaders in the world of neuroscience, our nervous systems and behavior including Dr. Arielle Schwartz, Dr. Mona Delahooke, Dr. Dan Siegel and Deb Dana, LCSW.
Working one-one-one with clients to celebrate their strengths is dear to my heart. Whether you’re looking to start a new journey toward health or wanting extra support for the path you’re already on, it’s an honor to partner with you to take small steps to deeper health and wellness.
I offer both coaching on its own as well as in conjunction with the Safe and Sound Protocol.
