Adjunct - Master of Professional Counseling
MS Clin Mental Hlth Counsel
Amy Miner, LCMHC is a therapist who entered the field of counseling as a second career.
Before she chose to go to graduate school, she spent nearly 10 years in law enforcement.
Her time as a patrol officer, and detective, fueled her desire to shift focus from
addressing the crises alone to the healing and growth that can follow.
Amy currently works at Youth Care where she works with adolescents and their families. She uses a myriad of interventions and theories, based on the client’s needs, including DBT, EMDR, expressive art therapy, experiential interventions such as play therapy or sand tray, emotion-focused therapy, CBT, and ACT. Amy draws heavily on the transactional relationship inherent in a working therapeutic alliance as an agent for change; as well as metaphors and a great deal of humor/easy manner.
