Amy L. Campos, MS

I am passionate about my work as an integrative holistic psychotherapist because it allows me the opportunity to help many incredible, resilient people reach their fullest potential. I am a firm believer that we are all capable of achieving incredible things in order to live our heart’s desires. Often we get stuck and can no longer hear the truth that is within us. Therapy done in a trustworthy, caring, and safe environment can open the door to an opportunity for self-exploration and help us hear our truth. In therapy, your job is to tell your story that includes all the wonderfulness of you as well as your pain and fear. My role as your therapist is to listen, help teach you new skills, and challenge you to see new ways to live your life, and most importantly to help you believe in yourself. I believe that we all need someone to talk with who will really listen and accept us as we are, without judgment. Compassion, understanding, and trust are important in the therapeutic process. I strive to create a safe and nurturing atmosphere in which individuals can be supported in their efforts to change and grow as well as become reconnected to their strengths and dreams.

My greatest reward as a therapist is helping my clients explore ways to make the changes in their lives that will allow them to look forward to the future with hope. I address the whole person and utilize modalities of treatment that fit the individual needs of clients. Through my professional counseling experiences, I have come to understand that people don't want to “dwell in the past,” but they often will want to make sense of their life story. Finding meaning in the life they've been given often in turn can free them of the past. People's core beliefs and values are prime movers and sources of energy in their lives. Helping my clients identify and integrate these central meanings into the counseling process provides the direction and sustainability needed to grow in fulfilling ways.

I have over 20 years of experience working within the Human Services field. I am a graduate of Walden University with a Master of Science degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling. I obtained my Bachelor of Science degree in 1995 from The Pennsylvania State University specializing in Human Development and Family Studies. I am a current member of Chi Sigma Iota - The International Honor Society for Professional Counselors, The American Counseling Association, and The International Institute for Complementary Therapists.

I am trained in a variety of researched based approaches that allow me to customize your therapy session to best meet your needs. I have experience and training in grief issues, mood and personality disorders, depression, anxiety, trauma, human/life-span development and changes, mindfulness, energy/body psychology as well as existential therapy and metaphysics. I am a LGBTQA/alternative life-style affirming professional. I have obtained training in and certification as a Hatha Yoga Instructor and Usui Reiki Master/Teacher. Currently, I am traveling along the journey of PhD candidate obtaining my Doctoral degree in Transpersonal Counseling. I identify as a life-long learner and vow to continue my education and training so that I may bring forth the best modalities of treatment to my clients.

Therapeutic Practices
My preparation as a holistic psychotherapist extends beyond the classroom to my own dedication to “walking the walk”. I enter the therapeutic process with deep respect and empathy for the courage and dedication of my clients. My therapeutic practices are driven by my precise use of Research Based Theoretical Orientations and include the use of Complementary Therapeutic Modalities when deemed appropriate.

As a holistic psychotherapist in private practice I offer Complementary Therapeutic modalities such as Restorative Yoga and teach Reiki Self-Treatment adjacent to talk therapy for the treatment of many depressive and anxious conditions. I utilize these modalities cautiously with my clients/trauma survivors; however individuals have been known to make enormous therapeutic breakthroughs due to the complimentary therapy they receive.

I am malpractice insured separately as a Psychotherapist and Complementary Therapist, therefore, I treat and bill separately.
