Amy Stella, M.A., MFT

Amy Stella works with individuals and couples, specializing in relational concerns, anxiety and depressive disorders, trauma, addiction, and problems pertaining to transitions and phase of life issues.

Combining her academic knowledge with her unique understanding and empathy for each client, Amy uses a technique that combines different psychoanalytic schools of thought. Through this approach, Amy helps clients gain an awareness of previously unconscious aspects of themselves through mindfulness, mind-body integration, and attachment theory which, in turn, helps them change problematic coping mechanisms and ways of being, such as ineffective decision-making and interpersonal patterns. Amy also uses cognitive-behavioral theory to assists clients in finding adaptive ways of perceiving themselves, others, and circumstances. Behavioral interventions involve the teaching of skills needed for effective coping, communication, self-care, and symptom relief.
