MEET OUR THERAPISTS

I’m Amy Waugh (she/her), a licensed clinical social worker and the owner of Pace Counseling. What’s happening in the here and now that you notice is impacting your life? The choices we make, the resources available to us, and the quality of our relationships are central to our health. 

My therapy style is direct, interactive, curious, and present-focused. My clinical lens lines up best with theories centered on the present moment, the social environment, and stretching our thoughts and behaviors to move toward a more meaningful life. The collaborative bond in the therapy relationship and modalities including ACT, DBT, relational, and feminist therapies can be effective treatments to find relief or get unstuck. 

My work in the community as a clinical social worker inspired me to create Pace as a space for both independent and collaborative practice. We notice or change the pace of our lives, relationships, and environments. Courage, compassion, connection, and action can help us move in a desired direction.

BROOKE PFISTERER

I’m a radically gentle and direct therapist who believes that people deserve to have their whole story heard. My career as a licensed clinical social worker is informed by my years of practice in working with folks who have experienced violence and the impact of trauma on their lives. I believe that therapy is a collaborative effort between client and therapist to create space for growth in the face of adversity. Enhancing safety, providing unconditional positive regard, and focusing on clients’ strengths are the key aspects of my therapeutic style.
