Wellness training for organizations
Amy works closely with companies and non-profit organizations to teach her techniques for self-care, gentle emotional release, stress relief, and prevention of burnout. Balancing our bodies and emotions throughout the day leads to healthier staff, better workplace relationships, and greater employee happiness. Amy often works one-on-one with CEOs, CFOs, and other team leads to create a more positive work environment.

For medical organizations, she trains staff on preventing secondary trauma. In addition she teaches physicians and staff how to integrate her simple self-healing tools with patients during appointments. Through her trainings, she’s discovered that giving effective self-help tools to patients can eliminate many “emergency” panicked calls to the office, especially around fear and anxiety about new protocols (which can be counterintuitive to treatment).  While busy physicians and staff can’t be expected to focus on addressing the emotional component of illness in its entirety (that is a speciality of its own), it can be hugely helpful for staff to know some simple protocols.  

Amy is often hired by medical organizations to lead group patient sessions in order to support emotional and physical healing.
