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 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, 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 Clinical 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 mental health conditions and disabilities, providing counseling and vocational rehabilitation support to adolescents and adults.

I have additional education in yoga with Yoga Calm and Jillian Pranksy and in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) with the Beck Institute. With a background in the arts and outdoors, I also have a strong respect for the role of creativity and nature in well-being.
