Amy Sisson, Director of Counseling
Amy Sisson is a Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor and Advanced Trauma Practitioner. She is also the Director of Counseling at Wing Haven. In addition to providing counseling services, she enjoys training law enforcement officers, teachers, and other professionals so that they may become more trauma informed.
"There is still an issue of stigma when it comes to someone getting treatment for mental health problems; many view those receiving counseling as weak or inherently flawed. I see it so differently. I have known people in counseling who are some of the most courageous and strong individuals I've ever met. They are often emotionally broken into a million pieces, they care their souls to a complete stranger, and then begin to rebuild, one step at a time. It takes strength, endurance, and an intense commitment. It is an honor to walk alongside my amazing clients and watch them heal." - Amy
