Amy Ferrasci, AMFT

Registered Associate MFT under supervision by Lena Axelsson, LMFT # 47915

Amy is passionate about helping clients build healthy and positive personal relationships and providing them with tools to solve their own problems and create a fulfilling life. She is committed to providing a safe, non-judgmental, and empathetic environment for her clients to explore their experiences and work towards greater well-being.

 

”I show up in sessions as my genuine self and hope to create an environment where my clients feel safe to do the same. Taking the time to examine your life is an important part of personal growth. Psychotherapy gives you the opportunity to feel seen and heard, to make sense of things in life and receive validation. Together we can identify things that are not working in your life and establish goals and a plan to help you move toward positive change."


Amy enjoys working with a diverse group of clients from different cultures and backgrounds, including couples, individuals, teens and children. She welcomes LGBTQ individuals and couples as well as gender non-conforming individuals. Her additional areas of special interest/experience include neurodivergent individuals/couples, addiction and recovery, eating disorders, chronic pain, trauma, anxiety and depression, supporting parents of children with disabilities/medical issues. She loves to explore motivation, the meaning of life and our place in it, sexuality, parenting, gender identity, and relationships.


Her approach is client-centered and integrative, meaning she draws from several different modalities depending on the client and circumstances. She utilizes parts work (IFS), ACT, Somatic techniques, CBT, DBT, Solution Focused, Narrative Therapy and Gottman Therapy. She also incorporates mindfulness techniques in session and brings awareness to the connection between the body and the mind.


Amy received her graduate degree in Psychology from University of Massachusetts Global and her Bachelor’s degree is in Art History from Humboldt State University (Now Cal-Poly Humboldt). She loves art and enjoys incorporating it into her work with clients. She is also a lover of the outdoors and believe exercise, fresh air and nature are highly beneficial to our mental health. She offers outdoor sessions and walk-and-talk therapy to her clients, if this appeals to you, let her know and you can schedule sessions
outdoors.


In her free time Amy loves to travel, dance, make things (she draws, makes mosaics, sculpts, does metalwork, sews, etc…), listen to podcasts, watch live music, exercise, spend time with friends and family, and hike.
