From a young age, Aimy has had a keen interest in humans—how they express themselves through art, how they grow as individuals, and how they achieve their goals. She grew up traveling around the country with her parents in support of her father’s artistic endeavors. Aimy herself was an artist and musician for many years, but after studying music as an undergrad in college, her interest in the human mind took her on a different route.
“I went back to school so I could take my love of helping others to the next level. My art was always focused on the mind, expanding awareness, etc. I realized that these were things I could help people with directly! I enrolled in grad school so I could focus my efforts on working more closely with individuals.”
As a therapist, Aimy’s primary goals are to help people reconnect with joy and their sense of purpose, nurture fulfilling relationships, and build self-confidence. She utilizes a variety of evidence-based techniques, as well as modern theories that emphasize the mind-body connection. Aimy’s approach to therapy is nurturing and collaborative. She finds that creating an atmosphere of trust and acceptance opens people up to explore their fears, worries, and past hurts in a compassionate, unguarded way. Also important is letting clients guide the speed and trajectory of the work, in keeping with the principle that each of us is the foremost expert on our own experience.
Aimy’s clients include trauma survivors, individuals managing a chronic illness, and people going through major life transitions, such as grief and loss. Many of her clients are high achievers—in either the professional world or outside of it—and many work in the behavioral health and non-profit fields. They often begin therapy at a place of burnout and isolation, having done more than their share of work and taken care of those around them for months or years without stopping to replenish themselves. Aimy collaborates with each client to create a personalized treatment plan focused on self-care and re-evaluating ideas related to obligation and responsibility. As anxiety, depression, trauma symptoms, and burnout diminish, clients can experience a renewed connection with the things that bring them joy, freedom in their relationships, and a positive outlook on life.
Clients often tell Aimy that she is the first therapist they have worked with who has truly “seen” them, and that her style is more efficient and effective than other approaches they have tried. Working with her has been described as a series of deep, productive conversations that free you up to compassionately examine and confront the most challenging parts of yourself. Which is just what she strives for.
Aimy is still an artist and musician. In her spare time, she loves making art and going out to see live music.
