Under Clinical Supervision

Amy Hersh, Licensed Mental Health Counselor Associate, MC61335512 is practicing under the supervision of Stuart Brewster (Washington, LICSW, LW60686077) at Mindful Roots Wellness PLLC.

Please, note: A clinician listed as being “clinically supervised” is completing clinical hours toward their licensure. They have one or more fully licensed clinical supervisors that often have special training to become supervisors. They consult with their supervisor(s) on all of their cases, which means that, when working with them, you are getting the time and expertise of multiple therapists in your treatment.

What was your path to becoming a therapist? What inspired you to choose this profession?

My personal journey navigating neurodivergence and anxiety and my transformative experience in my own therapy. I also discovered the intrigue of "ecopsychology" - or the scientific field related to our connection with nature. After years of work in the environmental field, I realized I could help others connect these pieces (mental health and nature), find peace and healing, and reconnect with the natural world.

What are your biggest strengths as a therapist?

I am flexible, relatable, authentic, and curious. I am always seeking new trainings and information to improve my work as a counselor and aid my clients with specific concerns. I am non-judgmental and open, and while I bring training, experience, and tools to aid my clients in their healing journey, I don't pretend to be an expert or always know what is best for you. I prioritize your autonomy and the collaborative nature of our relationship.
