Amy Gould View Specialties

My counseling services are designed to meet your specific needs and as we work together, I can adapt and modify the therapy process to meet your changing needs. I have experience with a wide range of people and concerns, and am dedicated to developing the therapy relationship over time.
In counseling, you will be able to  expand your deeper self, address spiritual issues if you choose, and develop a deeper understanding of how you relate to yourself and others. I do not restrict your therapy to specific techniques, and feel that therapy process works best when you have the freedom of self-discovery in the process. I am able to work in the following modes of therapy:
   * Individual Therapy and Depth Therapy
   * Marriage Counseling, Couples Therapy, and Relationship Counseling
   * Clinical Hypnosis for a variety of conditions
   * Group Therapy
   * Family Therapy
I see counseling as an ongoing, changing, relational process through which you will begin to have greater ability to make necessary changes through self-discovery, illumination of unconscious motives, insight, and identifying and working through core issues.
My specialties include marriage counseling and couples therapy, one-on-one depth therapy, and group therapy. A substantial part of my work is with trauma, war veterans, and sexual abuse survivors. I have in-depth knowledge of issues that are fundamental to these concerns. My special expertise includes, but is not limited to:
   * Survivors of Sexual Abuse, Physical Abuse, other abuse
   * Adults with Adverse Childhood Experiences
   * War Veterans and their Families
   * Relationship, Marriage, and Couples Counseling (i.e., health issues, chronic pain, family influences, financial stress, historical influences, trauma history, parenting issues, life transitions, job loss, and more)
   * Adults with Developmental Disability
I am located in Beachwood, Ohio just 5 minutes from I-271 & Chagrin Blvd. in the PDC Building on the first floor.
