Amy-Rose White LCSW, PHM-C
Amy-Rose was born in Australia, raised in the California East Bay, and currently reside in Utah. She is the fortunate mother of two teenage boys and a lover of all things outdoors, spending her free time exploring the mountains with her family. Movement, including dance, mindfulness meditation, and service, are essential grounding practices she utilizes to hold a healing energetic space for her clients.
She considers herself a mystical scientist, integrating an eclectic understanding of the psyche and environmental contributors to dis-ease, with deep intuitive abilities and empathy to create a wellness plan that works for you individually.
Amy-Rose’s career has spanned 25 years in the fields of child development, abuse & trauma prevention, domestic violence, perinatal mental health, and depression and anxiety treatment. Her expertise as an educator and trainer in attachment, trauma and perinatal mental health has led her speak at international conferences for the past 15 years.
Certified in Perinatal Mental Health (PMH-C) by Postpartum Support International, Amy-Rose has founded and directed major organizations serving perinatal families in two states and is considered an expert in the field. She has an in-depth understanding of the many signs and symptoms which are often missed or misunderstood as well as understanding the multitude of treatment options available including both wholistic and prescription options.
She has a particular interest in the impact that trauma, nutrition, and hormones have on emotional and physical health and works with many other trusted community partners to help clients formulate an integrative wellness plan to meet individualized goals. Her approach combines attachment/trauma, mindfulness, cognitive behavioral and DBT, Jungian/psychodynamic, Jin Shin Jyutsu self-help, somatic experiencing, emotionally focused therapy and Gottman Method practices. In a nutshell, she implements what will work best for your individual personality and situation. She approaches clients with flexibility, creativity and solicits feedback at each session.
Known as a gentle “straight shooter” with a coaching style, Amy-Rose provides direct, honest, judgment-free, yet focused feedback. She offers concrete tools for managing bothersome symptoms as quickly as possible and welcomes clients of any religious affiliation or none as well as all gender and sexual identifications. Her virtual office is a safe space to be yourself.
Ultimately, I believe effective psychotherapy is an invitation back to knowing the value of who we are, a reconnection to innate self-worth. My work is essentially about the reclamation of personal power, authority, and a sense of safety, security, and joy in the body. I look forward to working with you!
