About Us

Amy HeardAmy Heard, PhD
Growth and healing take place when individuals, couples and families learn more about themselves and find a way to do what matters most to them, even in hard times.

It is my goal to provide a place where this process can thrive, informed by science and experience.  I seek to do this by providing specific tools and techniques for coping with difficult feelings, gaining a different perspective on negative thought patterns, and staying present enough to make intentional choices when faced with life's challenges.
