Amy Fordham, MA

Mental Health Practitioner

Professional Philosophy

As a therapist, I strive to treat clients as unique individuals who are worthy of unconditional acceptance, regardless of their struggles and circumstances. It is my desire to create a safe place, walk alongside, challenge, and encourage my clients to find emotional and mental healing. My integrative approach is person-centered while incorporating Dialectical Behavior Therapy and cognitive-behavior therapy methods. I work with older adolescents and adults, individuals of the LGBTQIA population, individual and family mental health issues, and veterans. I have training and experience with Systemic Family Therapy.  

My previous professional experience included a model similar to that of Multi-Systemic Therapy working with adolescents and their families to help clients who were challenged with high-risk and/or defiant behaviors and attachment issues. I provided in-home therapy to these individuals to influence change through communication, rules and structure, and adequate support through relationship/attachment enhancement. I also co-facilitated adolescent and parent DBT group.

I am currently working as a Master’s Level Clinical Trainee in pursuit of becoming a Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor. I’m working under the supervision of Jami Hoxmeier, PhD, LP. I work with clients individually and co-facilitate the adolescent group. I passed the National Clinical Mental Health Counseling Examination in November 2018.
