Amy Freund has a BA in Cultural Anthropology from The University of Texas and an MAin Clinical Mental Health from Colorado Christian University. Between earning these two degrees, she has worked in many settings, gaining experience in the areas of sexual abuse, post-abortion recovery, parenting, and grief and loss. She has received training in couples (premarital and marriage/ couples) therapy that includes Gottman Couples Therapy Level 1 and 2 and a Prepare/Enrich facilitator certification.
Amy believes we all face challenges in life that make our ability to connect with one another profoundly difficult and painful at times. While she is acutely aware of the courage that it takes to reach out for help, healing, and hope, she trusts that change can occur in the context of a safe relationship. As a therapist, she employs an integrative approach encompassing a person-centered foundation that incorporates elements of cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) and narrative therapy. She affirms that every client's story and calling are uniquely theirs, and her hope is to guide the client to find what is purposeful and meaningful in their life, thus helping the client reach a place of beauty, freedom, and balance. Redemption is possible, whatever your story.
Amy is a native Texan and has been married for 30 years. She has four grown children and is now discovering the joys of grandparenting. When not serving clients, she loves cooking, hiking, reading, traveling, and spending time with family.
