Amy Maez CLC


I am a Certified Life Coach, have taken classes in Applied Behavior Analysis, and have earned certificates in several different areas. While I am not a therapist, I work with individuals and use therapeutic modalities to help them:

  • Change their thinking
  • Increase their emotional wellbeing
  • Change limiting belief systems
  • Reframe past experiences
  • Set and achieve goals
  • Make life changes
  • Increase motivation
  • Learn new skills

I focus on the present and the future. As a coach, I will work with you to find your own solutions, to make goals, and build habits to get you where you want to be.

Working with a therapist and life coach at the same time can be immensely beneficial in helping to apply awareness you are gaining and what you are learning about yourself in therapy. Coaching can be the action step in your journey of healing.

Certifications I hold include:

  • Foundations in MDMA Safety, Therapeutic Applications & Research
  • Understanding Psilocybin: Effects, Neurobiology, and Therapeutic Approaches
  • Working With Gender and Sexually Expansive Clients
  • Building Resiliency and Understanding Trauma
