Amy Green, LMFT
I am a Licensed Marriage Family Therapist in the state of Oregon and California. I’ve been in private practice for 10 years and have been in the field for 15 years. I am also an educator as I’ve taught at a private University for over 10 years. I have a master’s degree in Counseling Psychology from the University of San Francisco and a bachelor’s degree in Psychology from Simpson University. I also have completed all of the coursework for my doctorate degree in Organizational Leadership Behavioral Health from Grand Canyon University and I am currently working on completing my dissertation. I consider myself a life-long learner and I value education and personal growth.
My theoretical orientation is humanistic and psychodynamic… what that means is I believe who we are now is rooted in who we have been and who we can become is rooted in our truth. I believe we can create a life full of joy. I believe we have to discover ourselves, make sense and heal from our past and rewrite our story so that we can learn how to move forward. I believe we can do this within a genuine, caring and connected therapeutic relationship. I have been trained in a variety of therapeutic approaches including CBT, DBT, EFT, Trauma-Focused CBT, CPT, Attachment-Focused Dyadic Developmental, Brainspotting, Art Therapy, Play Therapy and Equine Assisted Psychotherapy. I have worked with most ages and specialty areas throughout my career including the following:
- Grief and loss
- Aging and life transitions
- Self-esteem and self-worth issues
- Relationship and intimacy challenges
- Personal and professional growth
I work with people of all races, ethnicities, sexual orientations, gender identities, religions, and abilities.
