    Amy L Barton LPC-S

    LPC-S, Certified School Counselor

    With several years of experience working in educational settings, I have developed a deep understanding of the unique challenges and needs that students face. I am skilled at creating a safe and supportive environment where children, teens and young adults (as well as “mature” adults) feel comfortable expressing themselves and exploring their emotions. 

    Methodology and Ideology 

    I place great value on education. There are many ways to learn and develop skills. However, I also know that sometimes our survival systems (perception of threat) doesn’t allow us to access the information/skills in our brains. This is where I love to work, in the space between the knowing and the application of the knowledge. 

    I frequently use trauma therapies such as ART (Accelerated Resolution Therapy) and somatic methods. I also use attachment based interventions as well as sand tray and art/play. 

    Associations: TCA, IS-ART
