Hello! I am Amy Blazek, a Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor (LCPC) and Certified School Counselor, with over 20 years experience in counseling children, teens, individuals and families. My undergraduate degree was in Psychology and I graduated with a Masters in Education and Counseling in 2000. Since grad school, I have been working as a School Counselor and therapist. In these roles, I work have worked with many individuals and families, with a wide range of issues, including changing families, divorce, coping skills, loss, anxiety, depression, ADHD, and parenting/relationship issues. Additionally, I spent time interning at Sheppard Pratt Psychiatric Hospital, working at Job Corps with teens/young adults, and facilitating divorce groups in the family courts. I utilize many approaches to counseling, depending on the individual and situation, especially CBT (Cognitive Behavior Therapy), Client Centered Therapy and Solution Focused Therapy.
On a personal note, I have been with my husband for 22 years and we have three children (13 year old boy and girl twins and a 15 year old daughter). Our 13 year old daughter has severe Autism and ID, so I have a lot of experience with special needs families and caregiving fatigue. Raising our three kids has significantly helped me in my professional role as a therapist, and vice versa. I believe I can help anyone who needs support, understanding and compassion, and someone to listen and help you and/or your family navigate through life's many challenges.

As you know, it is hard to find someone who you mesh with when seeking therapy. Amy is so chill and down to earth. More importantly, she actually listens and gives great tips and strategies to help with my anxiety. She responds quickly to text messages and has varies times of availability which makes it easy to book sessions.
Amy is such a wonderful counselor for our 14 year old son. She's so kind and understanding. She also has helped him learn great techniques to deal with his depression, anxiety and anger.
She is well to communicate mutual understanding of communication. Her understanding of communication between us is highly strong and healthy! She is individually and collectively objective to communicate and help both of us!
Online counseling had me initially nervous, but Amy has been great. She's been incredibly easy to talk to, very easy to connect with, and she has a really great grasp and approach to get to the bottom of things. I've already advocated for both her and teen counseling based on my experience with her so far, and I feel confident in working out our issues together.
She is very kind and understanding
I've only had a few sessions with Amy, but she has made me feel comfortable in sharing in a short period of time. I look forward to more sessions with her.
Professional and knowledgeable. Down to earth.
