Born and raised New Englander, Amy Narusas made her way to Tennessee in 2016 from her hometown just outside of Boston, MA. Amy always found herself as the “go-to” person for friends and family to lean on during difficult times. Her passion to help others by listening and learning drew her to the social work profession. Amy is coming to us from Vanderbilt Medical Center, where she is the Lead of the Social Work Team. She is a passionate and innovative leader who has started two intensive outpatient programs, led hundreds of groups, and provided care and guidance to individuals working through a myriad of mental wellness difficulties. Amy is a big believer in finding balance within life’s ups and downs and understands the importance of processing thoughts, emotions, and experiences in a safe and meaningful way.
Working with Amy you can expect to have a partner on your journey who listens to you, collaborates with you, challenges you, and guides you. Amy’s hope is that you leave each therapy session feeling empowered and equipped with the tools necessary to move forward.
Amy is drawn to helping clients process difficult events, find their meaning in life, heal from past experiences, and cope with anxiety, depression, and life transitions. She has a specialization in substance use and mental health and is trained in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, and Dialectical Behavior Therapy. Amy has experience working in various levels of care and draws on her background and training to develop meaningful and attainable goals with each individual she works with.
As a life-long learner, Amy has a passion for evidence-informed therapeutic practices. She loves to learn new and effective ways to help her clients and enjoys challenging herself by expanding her expertise. Drawing upon her extensive knowledge and training, she offers a wealth of expertise to equip you with the most effective strategies and tools for achieving the personal growth and healing you hope to see in yourself.
