it's time to grow heal & blossom.

let us walk on this journey together

my mission...

I know how hard it can be to feel isolated and unsure of where your safe places or people are. I have experienced trauma and struggled with anxiety and know how all consuming it can feel.  We all deserve to know our worth and have the hope to overcome the daily struggles that hinder us from becoming a more authentic and peaceful version of ourselves.  

My goal is to create a safe and empathetic space for you to reflect and understand the complexities in your story and use it as a way to heal, overcome, and thrive. 

an advocate for healing and normalizing radical self-care.

I'm Amy.


At Copihue Counseling my goal is creating a space of safety and empathy, while assisting individuals in understanding and overcoming trauma, grief, and loss.   Through a mixture of therapeutic services, colsutation, and education, Copihue Counseling instills the practice of radical self-love to embrace, protect, and honor ones being. 

Copihue Counseling is named after the national flower of Chile, where I was born.  The Copihue {koh/pee/way} is a rare flower unique to the region and equally rare for its upside down blossom.  When I think of healing, I think of needing the skills to ground ourselves in our truth to begin important and meaningful work.  From there, we are able to grow, find clarity, heal, and eventually, blossom.  All of our journeys have complex stories and when you visit Copihue Counseling I want you to know you are seen and capable of healing. You are unique, rare, and worthy, no matter how you blossom.
