Amy Ohs, LCSW, joined the Grand Peaks Behavioral Health team in December of 2019. Amy received her Master’s Degree in Social work from Walla Walla College in Washington and Idaho Licensure in 2005. In 2009 she became a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW). She started her career working for the Idaho Department of Correction as a Probation and Parole officer where her interest in mental health began. Amy has worked in several capacities of mental health agencies which include local mental health centers in the area and the D7 Treatment Program where she specialized in the treatment of substance abuse disorders. Amy comes to us with a wide array of experience in diagnosing and treating people with various types of mental health and substance abuse disorders. She has a wealth of knowledge and her goal is to “provide a nonjudgmental and safe environment for people to be able to work through their problems, feel better and learn tools to manage their symptoms.”
Amy utilizes the modalities of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing (EMDR) and Person Centered Therapy and recently began facilitating DBT skills group therapy, as a new service to our community. Amy provides individualized care and is focused on helping people to help themselves, gain tools and improve the quality of their lives.
Grand Peaks is fortunate to add a clinician with Amy’s experience to the Behavioral Health team!
