Amy Frew, Ph.D., LMFT, RPT-S

Amy is a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist in the state of Tennessee, Registered Play Therapist - Supervisor and an AAMFT Approved Supervisor. In working with children and teens, she combines the therapeutic elements of art, sand, and play to provide clients a safe and empowering environment allowing for positive change and growth.

Her experience comes from her work with adoptive families, victims of domestic violence and sexual abuse, and families who have experienced death and divorce.
