Therapist in Tacoma, Washington Amy Dwyer, LICSW

Amy Dwyer, LICSW

I believe in a collaborative approach to therapy. In partnership, we will work to explore your needs and develop a treatment plan to address identified issues. I primarily employ a cognitive-behavioral approach as this treatment modality has been shown to be effective in therapy. In addition, I use a strengths-based framework. Together we will address symptom management, build on your pre-existing strengths, and further develop your coping strategies. In addition, our work will likely include making meaning of important life events. Treatment work with children, adolescents and families also routinely includes exploring developmental issues and providing strategies for caregivers.
I received a Bachelor of Science Degree in Psychology from Oregon State University in 1997 and a Master’s of Social Work Degree from Portland State University in 2002. I have worked in outpatient and inpatient mental health settings since 2002. My professional experience includes individual, family, and group therapy in the treatment of children, adolescents, and adults.
I have been trained in several evidence-based practices, including Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy for Depression and Anxiety, Trauma Focused Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy, Aggression Replacement Therapy, and Dialectic Behavior Therapy.
