You are meant to do great things with your life. Do you need a trusted sounding board to help you identify and work through those unhelpful thoughts and behaviors that are stopping you from living the life you envisioned? Do you find yourself repeating old patterns or seeking insight into why you say and do as you do? Are your past experiences getting in the way of your present life goals? My name is Jennifer Ami and I commend you on taking this step to put yourself first by seeking a therapeutic space that is just for you to explore all your goals and aspirations. I believe therapy is a gift and it would be my privilege to help assist you on your personal journey towards reaching your full potential.

Therapy is a journey involving trust and collaboration. I utilize an eclectic approach to treatment, attempting to emotionally meet you where you are on your life journey, while providing unconditional positive regard, validation and genuineness to create a safe and secure space primed for working through and healing from past traumas and attachment wounds that may interfere with daily living. I strive to balance both compassionate support and directive feedback to help you achieve your goals and assist you with identifying ways to increase motivation as we work through potential blockages.

I believe mental wellness requires a holistic perspective with psychotherapy being a major piece in helping achieve one’s full potential. The therapeutic relationship is the vehicle to change. I encourage open dialogue throughout the process between you and I, so I can customize the treatment to best meet your individual needs. In my practice, I utilize various evidenced based therapies and draw upon several therapeutic approaches, including but not limited to: Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Attachment Theory, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing (EMDR), Exposure Therapy, Humanistic Theory, Interpersonal Therapy, Mindfulness-Based Interventions, Narrative Therapy, Psychodynamic Therapy, Solution Focused Therapy, Strengths Based Therapy and Systems Theory.

I offer convenient and secure online counseling for people living in the states of Louisiana and Arizona. If you are ready to start uncovering new insights that will help lead to you experiencing a greater sense of fulfillment, please call or email to schedule a free 20 minute consultation. I'm sending you peace and clarity as you embark on your journey to mental wellness!
