Amy Huynh, MA, LMFT
I received my Master of Arts in Clinical Psychology from Pepperdine University and Bachelor of Arts in Social Work from California State University, Long Beach. My passion to become a psychotherapist grew from my experience working as a child welfare social worker. Through this experience, my drive to help people heal from childhood trauma propelled me in the direction of becoming a Marriage and Family Therapist. My work and interning experiences include working in addiction recovery; and working with disenfranchised youth, with a focus on complex trauma, co-occurring disorders, and addiction.
I have been described as a warm and supportive therapist, and I see my clients through a compassionate and nonjudgmental lens. I wholeheartedly believe in a person’s ability to heal and grow with support through therapy. I have a deep passion for helping others heal and transform their experiences. I strive to help my clients gain empowerment and growth through the therapeutic alliance. I believe in providing clients with a supportive space, as well as effective interventions to foster self discovery and encourage the healing process. My practice specialties include trauma, addiction, co-occurring disorders, codependency, anxiety, attachment, and self esteem issues. I utilize mind body interventions, somatic work, DBT, and EMDR in my practice.
My other interests include art, trying new things, and spending time with family and friends. In my spare time, I enjoy traveling, dabbling in photography, and discovering new places with my partner and our two dogs.
