Amy is from beautiful El Paso, Texas. After high school, she pursued her passion for fashion, graduating from the University of North Texas with degrees in Fashion Merchandising and Business. It only made sense that she then move to New York City, so she accepted an internship with a premiere fashion company. Unfortunately, over the next 3 years her love for the Big Apple and fashion turned gray. Amy realized her childhood dream was not fulfilling in her adult life.
After much soul searching, she decided she could be doing more than picking the perfect shade of green for sweaters. She made the choice to get back home to Texas and begin work on her Community Counseling degree at Argosy University.
We were lucky enough to snag her after she completed her MA hours with us (yay!) Amy is now a LifeWorks senior clinician specializing in infidelity, divorce and divorce recovery, premarital counseling, codependency, and EMDR and trauma recovery, in addition to issues facing Hispanic individuals, couples and families.
Amy also works with individuals who are struggle with identity development, depression, anxiety, and borderline personality disorder.
When Amy is not working, she continues to add stamps to her passport: exploring the coral reefs in Cozumel to the Inca ruins in Machu Picchu, running with the bulls in Pamplona to exploring the canals of Amsterdam. She also does some local exploring by visiting all the local eats and restaurants. Although she has done her fair share of half marathons, she would describe herself as a person who likes her cheeseburgers who occasionally jogs.
