Amy Hamilton is originally from a small town in the Midwest and ended up in San Francisco after college. She came kicking and screaming down to Los Angeles over 10 years ago, but now can’t imagine living anywhere else. Amy and Felicity met where most moms do, on the kindergarten playground. She quickly discovered that they shared many of the same parental struggles and life philosophies, and more than that, Felicity was just plain fun to be around. They have been friends ever since. Amy is a wife, mother, and friend who knows first hand the struggle to find peace and balance in a chaotic world. Amy is a former elementary teacher, has a Masters in Psychology and is currently working as a Marriage and Family Therapist Registered Intern, IMF #64190. She is employed and supervised in a private practice in Sherman Oaks, CA by Debra Brunsten, LMFT.
