Promoting and Supporting Emotional Well-Being for Teens & Adults
Amy R. Swenson, MA
I truly enjoy working with clients to improve their well-being. Research shows the therapist-client relationship is the most important predictor of the outcome of therapy. As a result, time is taken to build a safe, collaborative relationship to help the client learn new coping methods and make well-informed decisions regarding their life’s path. It’s a joy to see my clients become more confident in who they are, how they feel, and where they’re headed.
I have a special interest in working with young adults as they heal childhood wounds and take control of and set goals for their future. I also specialize in working with women concerning infertility and the IVF process. It is invaluable to have a therapist who understands the consuming journey one takes when faced with infertility treatment.
I have worked as a therapist, counseling children and teens, in several schools in the Bay Area including: Gunn High School (through Adolescent Counseling Services); John Muir Middle School, Dartmouth Middle School; and Union Middle School (through Almaden Valley Counseling Service); Lakewood Elementary School and Columbia Middle School (Sunnyvale School District); and Fisher Middle School (Los Gatos Union School District). I have also worked with children, teens, and adults and taught parenting classes at the Almaden Valley Counseling Service clinic.
I received my M.A. in Counseling Psychology and my B.S. in Psychology from Santa Clara University. I am a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, MFC # 47557.
