What Amy Turi would like you to know about her:
I truly enjoy working with teens and young adults. I find this time of life both joy-filled and challenging for young people. This phase of life can be a wonderful opportunity to practice independence, adulting and self-efficacy. I also work closely with caregivers on supporting their teens, offering validation and skills to help through this incredibly dynamic time. I am passionate about utilizing evidenced-based treatment and being responsive to clients' needs, culture and expertise on themselves and their family. I am a mother of two boys, love to be outside, am a competitive triathlete and enjoy yoga and reading.
