Amie Summers, LICSW, SEP serves her community as a clinician working with clients of all ages, as a parent and professional consultant, and a trainer of mental health practitioners around the world. The express intention at the center of Amie’s work is to support clients in moving in the direction of a better-feeling life and relationships. In her 15+ years in the healthcare and mental health fields, she has come to know and trust that each of us possesses an innate impulse for healing. Regardless of the suffering experienced along the way, within us continues to reside exactly what’s needed to allow for more meaningful, vibrant, and connected living.
Amie is a veteran of the U.S. Armed Forces, and feels privileged to support those connected with the military, law enforcement, and first-responder communities. Her greatest teachers are her three young children – experts in living joyfully in the here-and-now. She recognizes that along with the challenges of parenting (and they are aplenty!) come some of our most important opportunities for growth, playfulness, deep gratitude, and becoming more of who we’re meant to be.
