Amelia is currently pursuing her master’s degree in counseling psychology at The Chicago School of Professional Psychology. She is focused on working with adults who are coping with challenging life events or transitions, and those who are feeling stuck or hoping to create positive change in their lives. Her clinical areas of interest include mood troubles (such as anxiety or depression), insomnia, substance use concerns, trauma, relationship and career issues.
By providing a safe, nonjudgmental, and collaborative space to process difficult emotions, Amelia supports individuals’ journeys toward discovering their true and authentic selves. She believes that change happens through developing insight into the root of our thoughts, behaviors, and the way we relate to others. Amelia views therapy as a collaborative, strength-based process where the client and therapist work together to identify solutions and establish healthier ways of coping.
Prior to studying psychology, Amelia spent her early career working in a variety of roles in the advertising/marketing sector, where she developed an appreciation of the unique demands of that field. She earned her undergraduate degree in journalism from the University of Wisconsin-Madison.
Amelia is a strong advocate of maintaining a healthy work-life balance and enjoys spending time in nature, practicing yoga, traveling, trying out new recipes in the kitchen, and making music.
