About Amy-Noelle

Relationship Therapist, MA, LPC

Two and a half years ago, I became seriously ill after prolonged exposure to toxic mold in my office. My wellness journey took me much, much deeper into the healing process, and I realized that the only person who can heal you is You; no expert can solely do that for you. At first, my ego rejected this notion as I was trained to believe that the “expert” has the answers. After all, I am a relationship and mindfulness expert, trained under renowned gurus and even endorsed by a psychologist who has written two New York Times Best Sellers and been a recurring guest on Oprah.

My own Pain Teacher showed me this deeper truth: It is your birthright to:

• Experience your own wisdom, intuition, body intelligence, and guided instructions in every now moment.

• See your true and magnificent self as you really, actually are and let go of false identities that never were you.

• Honor your authentic inner drive.

• Believe, reclaim, and stand in your Power and know your Truth, what I call your Power-Truth®.

Life Coaching

I provide Life Coaching to clients who are looking for specific ways—strategies and tools— to attain their desired goals. In addition, I draw from my own data gathered from more than a decade and a half of experience working with clients and my personal life experience.


Many clients seek my services because they find themselves repeating a dance that is not in sync with their deepest desires. This misalignment is often experienced in various settings and can show up as stress and anxiety.

It can help to have an experienced professional—a seasoned ‘relationship connector’—who can see patterns relationally, objectively, and non-judgmentally.

I consider myself to be an ‘inner truth connector.’ With a practical-meets-more approach, I look beyond the stories and see where there is unprocessed emotional pain—perhaps a loss of a dream. I am passionate about helping clients find their authentic voices.

Therapy is a place to have guided, emotionally corrective experiences and heal issues blocking you from growing into the fullness of you.

I use the Gottman Method, Positive Psychology, and also draw from Ester Perel’s work, which integrates psychodynamic, attachment, and systemic theories, as well as body-oriented and mindful therapy approaches.

Therapy + Coaching Approach

I consider the whole person through a holistic lens, drawing primarily from Mindful Therapy, Psychodynamic Therapy, and Positive Psychology.

Therapy + Coaching Style

Therapy is conducted in a highly collaborative manner with an empathic, heart-focused directness.

About Amy-Noelle

Our stories can hold conditional truths - they often aren't the deeper truths that have the power to liberate you from false ways of being. How you choose to story pain has transformative potential.

"When you give yourself permission to see what you most deeply desire, in moments when you are alone and not caught up in the pursuit of this-or-that, you are practicing Self Love, Self Compassion. You are inviting in a universal truth:

Love is free.
Enoughness is free.
You already had it,
and it awaits you.
Permit yourself to... "


One of my clients said, “I give myself permission to be OK with me. I already tried on other people’s beliefs and realized it was making me miserable.” ⠀

Another client said, “I give myself permission to not be a super-entrepreneur.” This client recalled the “utopia” he felt when he went to summer camp and he was a nobody. “Why was it such a liberating time?” he asked. Then he recalled how he loved learning about people and being “inquisitive.” “I want to be that person again,” he said with an earnest voice. ⠀

I asked him what need or belief he was hanging on to. He said that he had a need to “wow” people, albeit at the cost of tremendous stress. ⠀

My client was able to recognize that the utopia he deeply desired to feel again was waiting for his permission.
