Amy Haertel

Masters of Social Work Intern

Trauma can profoundly impact all aspects of an individual’s life. These personal challenges can begin to define a person. Individuals might lose perspective and motivation due to subconscious thoughts of failure, disappointment, and pain as they fail to remember who they are outside of the problem. I am deeply committed to helping my clients navigate the complex challenges that often accompany traumatic experiences and to support them in the journey toward stabilization, healing, and recovery. I aim to create a space where we can explore experiences, process emotions, and develop the skills and strategies needed to move forward in a positive direction. I approach trauma work with empathy, respect, and a deep appreciation for the resilience and strength of each individual I have the privilege to work with.

More than just my work:

Being outside and experiencing nature brings me great peace and freedom. I love to river kayak. Kayaking is a great way to connect with nature, explore remote areas and observe wildlife while immersing myself in beautiful landscapes. It can also be a big adventure or an effortless float. Kayaking is a unique blend of adventure, exercise, and natural beauty.
