Amy Holmes, LPC

Philosophy of Care

Currently residing in the Atlanta Georgia area, Amy is a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC). In 2015, Amy graduated from Liberty University-Lynchburg Va. with her masters in Professional Counseling with a concentration in Trauma and Substance Abuse therapy. Amy’s husband is now a retired Air Force Veteran, but 10 years ago they were stationed here in Georgia from North Carolina. Since 2015, Amy has had a many experience within the realm of mental health. Her experience includes private practice counseling, and extensive counseling in a psychiatric inpatient hospital setting.

Amy believes her best tool that she can offer clients is her talent of authenticity and inspiration. Authenticity from the therapist asserts and encourages clients to seek their true self while promoting self-awareness. Amy believes that authenticity is achieved through honest, compassionate, objective self-evaluation. Authenticity bonded with inspiration and therapeutic skills, works to maximize positive therapeutic outcomes. Amy utilizes an eclectic approach, understanding there are many ways to approach a problem. She specializes in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Motivational Interviewing, Person Centered, and Mindfulness techniques. Amy stresses the importance of being able to “think about your thinking.” This approach is used to challenge unhelpful thinking, while disrupting maladaptive behavioral patterns in order to replace them for a positive outcome. Amy is also able to provide motivational coaching to help clients reach their goals.

Amy’s approach is direct, yet compassionate. Amy acknowledges that the client is the expert in their own life and maintains that one of the therapist’s primary roles when working with clients is to operate as a guide; both client and counselor working collaboratively together to reach identified goals. Amy understands that no two people experience upset in their cognitions and mood exactly the same.
When not guiding individuals through their healing process, Amy can be found at home doing crafts, working out, spending time with equestrian friends and going to events or hanging out with her grandkids.
