Additional Information


After my husband passed away suddenly, I was left with a 14-month old son and a deep void in my life. I was robotic, moved from our home in Lodi to Lincoln and was not allowing tears to flow. I went to Amy for grief counseling. She helped me cry, let go of control and started me on a path of healthy grieving. I’m feeling better, and I’m headed in a right and positive direction.

I began working with Amy at the beginning of my divorce. I felt like I was in a total freefall. Her guidance and perspective allowed me to land with understanding, acceptance and peace.
