Amy Kennedy, MS, CRC, LPC Intern

I have a private practice providing individual mental health counseling for adults in Portland, OR. I specialize in women’s well-being, life transitions and chronic illness. I view mental health from a whole body health perspective and value the role of the brain, body, and spirit in well-being. As a therapist, some approaches I draw on include: Nonviolent Communication (NVC), Interpersonal Neurobiology, Yoga, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), and Depth Psychology. Based on the needs of the client, counseling can include talk therapy, mindfulness, and creative arts techniques.

Background

I have an M.S. in Mental Health Counseling and Rehabilitation Counseling from Portland State University. I received a B.A. in Psychology and Painting from Lewis & Clark College.

During graduate school, I completed three years of training in mental health counseling, with a specialization in therapy for individuals with chronic illness and disability. I have worked with individuals with vision loss, chronic illness, disability, and mental health conditions, providing counseling and vocational rehabilitation support to adolescents and adults.

I have additional continuing education in Yoga with Yoga Calm and in Jungian theory. With a background in the arts and outdoors, I also have a strong respect for the role of creativity and nature in well-being.
