She believes that with open and honest dialogue, coupled with a client’s effort, that the counseling space can be safe and transformative.

Widowed at a young age with small children, Amy Jo relied on therapy, her faith, and the support of friends and family to walk through the fog of grief. She later had the privilege of working with individuals who had lost loved ones as a group leader in Grief Share. This experience has given her a passion for sitting alongside others who have experienced loss, grief and disappointment.

When she’s not cheering for her kiddos on the sports field, Amy Jo loves to walk with friends, cook, and experiment with essential oils. She is a member of the American Counseling Association as well as the American Association of Marriage and Family Therapy, and she and Scott are members of a local church.
