Biography

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!

EMAIL & PRIVACY.  Client information will not be shared, sold or otherwise disclosed to any other party except as requested by the client in writing. The law protects the relationship between a client and therapist with the exception of the following situations:

  • Suspected child abuse or dependent adult or elder abuse, for which I am required by law to report this to the appropriate authorities immediately.
  • If a client is threatening serious bodily harm to another person/s, I must notify the police and inform the intended victim.
  • If a client intends to harm himself or herself, I will make every effort to enlist their cooperation in insuring their safety. If they do not cooperate, I will take further measures without their permission that are provided to me by law in order to ensure their safety.
  • Therapists are required by law to report incidences of sexual misconduct on the part of other therapists.
  • Additionally, I may consult with my clinical supervisor and/or consultation group without disclosing any identifiable information.
  • I abide by HIPAA practice standards.

There are limits to protecting your confidentiality over the internet.  Please consider the information you submit over the internet prior to sending.  Please do not use email or “contact us” form to send messages of a personal or confidential nature. Even though I do my best to keep my email confidential, email is copied, archived, and retransmitted continuously as part of normal processing. Because of this, please use email only to request information about my services, or other non-confidential matters.

There are several ways you can communicate with me without having to send information over the Internet: in person, by phone, fax or mail.

Email and texting is intended in my practice for administrative purposes i.e. changing appointment times, contacting me to request an appointment, or confirm appointment times. Please recognize that email or texting is not completely secure or confidential. If you choose to communicate via email, be aware that emails are retained in the logs of internet service providers. While it is unlikely that someone will be looking at these logs, they are in theory available to be read by the system administrator(s) of the internet service provider. Please be aware that any emails received or sent can become part of the legal record.
