Professional statement

Amy Wilder is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker with a New York online therapy practice. Having received specialized training at the Institute for Contemporary Psychotherapy, she is an expert in trauma recovery. Amy works with adults to help them heal from low self-esteem, damaging relationship patterns, and the negative self-beliefs that can result from difficult childhood experiences, such as neglect, domestic violence or sexual abuse, and/or adult traumas such as sexual assault. She takes special care in helping her clients restore their sense of stability and find their inner resilience.

In addition to her expertise in trauma, Amy is passionate about supporting social service professionals through the work they do as well as professional dancers and other performing artists in transitions. Drawing from personal and professional experience, she understands the challenges creative professionals face in navigating career transitions, body image concerns, and the other challenges inherent in the life of a creative/performing arts professional.

Amy utilizes Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) as well as mindfulness techniques to holistically treat the body and mind. She is excited to help clients restore their sense of balance and live life more authentically.
