Supervisee in Clinical Social Work
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.
“I went home and practiced what Amy taught me…and it worked!”— 8-year-old coaching client
We read through your website from start to finish and were so impressed by your extensive credentials and training but, the real reason why we want to work with you is your clear enthusiasm for children and families and the wisdom and deep love you share for both!— Mom of 12-year-old child with special needs
Amy knows how to relate to children, and make them feel comfortable . My son was shy at the beginning but Amy asked him a couple questions about what he likes and immediately found the connection to him. He happily followed her in the office (just after a 3 min of conversation) and preformed the test. He wasn’t nervous or scared and it’s bc of her ability to relate to kids.
We had a great experience and he wants to go back! Thank you very much!— Dad of 5-year-old assessment client
