Dr. Amra

Psy.D. Clinical Psychotherapist

When you understand yourself, you can change your life. 

I believe that one’s mind, body and personal environment are inseparable and that health or illness may be reflected in one or all of them. My work addresses all levels of a person. 


I provide traditional, psychodynamic talk therapy in a confidential, HIPAA-compliant telehealth setting.


Contact me for a free consultation to see how I might help.

Areas of Expertise

Psychotherapy, crises of health & identity,
life transitions, dreamwork & spirituality, neurodiversity, relationships

I provide individual psychotherapy to adults ages 23-105.


We all have conscious "thinking and doing" parts of ourselves, the part we mean when we say "I". We also have an entirely unconscious part of ourselves, the part that drives our impulses, patterns, and dreams. In your therapy, we will work with these unconscious dynamics to understand the roots of your distress and work them through. My work integrates psychodynamic psychotherapy with elements of Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), body-based work, dreamwork, and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy.

I see crisis and discomfort as an opportunity to heal and grow. Talking in a confidential setting and feeling understood, witnessed and respected helps people to move through pain and stuck places. This is what provides lasting change and relief. This work can be challenging at times and bring up difficult emotions. However, I will always "show up" fully to meet you in this process.

I may be a good fit for you if you:

  • are interested in longer-term psychotherapy

  • are curious about yourself

  • want to live as authentically as possible

  • have had previous psychotherapy -- though not necessarily -- and are ready to resume your work in the face of some new challenge or decision.

A note about insurance:

If you hope to use insurance to cover your psychotherapy costs, I am happy to provide the paperwork necessary for you to get reimbursed. This means that you pay at the time of your session and get money back directly from your insurance carrier. You can call your insurance company to learn if they will cover my services as an "out-of-network provider."
