AMY GILLESPIE, LCSW
"Let’s face it, change is hard. Changing our lives, our behaviors, our perspectives, our attitudes, our hearts, can be some of the most challenging things we do as individuals. Change is difficult, even if we know that change will bring us to something better.

My passion as a therapist, is to provide a space for individuals to learn what Lao Tzo poetically described, 'What the caterpillar calls the end, the rest of the world calls a butterfly.' My role as a therapist is to help individuals learn skills needed to successfully navigate their individual life transformation.

I receive great satisfaction in working with individuals as they learn skills required to resolve issues of substance abuse, self-esteem, emotional dysregulation, relationships, conflict resolution, trauma, grief, and self-forgiveness. I marvel at the resilience of each individual who allows me to accompany him/her on their unique journey of transformation and personal freedom.”

Amy is committed to educating individuals in the following areas: discovering self-worth and self-forgiveness; working with people who struggle with issues involved with addictions, disordered eating and thinking; and teaching individuals how to resolve issues surrounding trauma and grief. Amy has a respect for the value of psycho-educational and process groups and a deep held belief in the infinite value of the human soul.

 

Amy has experience working with several different populations: adolescents at Provo Canyon School and with a foster/proctor agency; college students at both Utah Valley University (UVU) and the University of Utah Counseling Center (UCC); and adults while working at the UCC, and with Valley Mental Health (VMH) at the Salt Lake County Metro and Oxbow Jails. Amy appreciates the diversity of the populations with whom she has worked, as she has worked with a wide variety of individuals from various socioeconomic, cultural, ethnic, educational, and other diversified backgrounds.

 

Amy is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW). She holds a master’s degree from the University of Utah in Social Work and a bachelor’s degree from Utah Valley University in Behavioral Science, with an emphasis in Social Work. Amy practices in both Salt Lake and Utah County locations.
