Amy Morvay, M. Ed., LPC

Amy is a Licensed Professional Counselor who earned her Master’s degree from Loyola University-Chicago as well as Bachelor’s degree in Psychology with a minor in Sociology from Augustana College in Rock Island, IL. Since 2011, Amy has worked with children, adolescents and families in a variety of settings including education, youth non-profit and private practice.

 

Amy believes a foundation of trust, empathy and respect is the core of the therapeutic relationship and enters each session with these pillars in mind. Amy strives to utilize a therapeutic style that best fits the needs of her clients but frequently incorporates CBT (Cognitive Behavioral Therapy), Strengths-Based, Solution-Focused and Client-Centered philosophies so clients can set realistic goals and identify their strengths to harness success. Amy believes in joining the client as a team member in the process of navigating the way to positive changes. When working with children/teens, Amy encourages parent and family members participation as this provides a platform to implement interventions and strategies that will make a lasting impact outside of therapy sessions.

 

Amy has experience working with depression, anxiety, ADD/ADHD, peer relationship concerns, anger management, parenting skills, family conflict, academic achievement, life transitions, and daily stressors with children, teens and young adults through adulthood.

 

When not working, Amy enjoys traveling, cooking new recipes and strolling through her neighborhood in the city.
