Amy Hayner-DePew graduated from Miami University with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Psychology and Sociology. Her Master’s Degree in counseling was obtained from Cincinnati Bible Seminary in 1995. LPCC requirements were completed at Wright State University. Her clinical internships were fulfilled at Good Samaritan Hospital and Bethesda Oak Hospital in their psychiatric in-patient unit and Day Treatment Programs. She has been an active counselor for the past 22 years working with young adults, adolescents, and families. She has worked within the scope of private practice, community based companies, school systems and hospitals.
Amy is also a licensed school counselor by the State of Ohio fulfilling her academic requirements through Xavier University. She has been employed by the Lakota Local School District as a high school counselor in the past which has presented her with a unique perspective in dealing with adolescents and their college/career planning needs. She has also been in the Middletown School District and New Miami School District offering support for students and staff through her counseling services.
As a life coach, she specializes in helping families and individuals who are dealing with crossroads in their life whether personally or career wise. She enjoys helping high school students explore opportunities to further their education through researching colleges and possible career paths with the student. She can also provide guidance on what colleges are looking for, as well as, what scholarships are out there for individuals.
Throughout all her services, Amy is committed to applying Christian principals, faith and prayer through her work with her clients. She firmly believes that God has a plan for everyone’s life and the best plan for that person is when they are centered in God’s will. The Bible is her ultimate authority. This is the lens through which she views life’s struggles and pain. It is also the lens through which she views healing and restoration. While her Christian beliefs are at the center of who she is, she offers counseling to clients from all backgrounds and respects the views of each individual client.
Amy is, also, currently in the process of obtaining mediation training through The Supreme Court of Ohio and is looking forward to incorporating that into the services she provides to her clients.
She has been married to her husband, Greg, for 21+ years and they have two children. Her son is a freshman in college and her daughter is a freshman in high school. She is an active member of Liberty Heights Church and is involved in their leadership ministry.
