Amy Armstrong, M.Ed., LPC-A

Clinician, Ethos Wellness - Bellaire

As a Clinician on the Adolescent Team at Ethos Wellness – Bellaire, Amy facilitates group sessions for teens and teaches Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) to those admitted into the PRISM Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP). She also conducts individual sessions with IOP and outpatient clients and treats the parents and siblings involved in this therapeutic journey, ensuring empathy and non-judgment along the way.

Amy began her professional career at the Menninger Clinic, where she worked part time as a mental health associate while pursuing her master’s in education at the University of Houston. While there, she gained experience working with adolescents, young adults, professionals in crisis and patients struggling with eating disorders and obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD).  Prior to graduating, she completed her practicum through the Harris County Jail System, working with inmates who were accepted into the Cognitive Behavioral Therapy program.  Here, she practiced forensic psychology while working with violent offenders in the 23-hour lock-down unit. She also began her own therapeutic group, consisting of inmates with special needs, on top of her role with the CBT program. 

Before being accepted into the College of Education at the University of Houston, Amy graduated from Saint Edward’s University with her bachelor’s in psychology. While pursuing her degree, she worked with the GO Project, an Austin ISD program that enabled students with disabilities to move beyond the high school setting and finish their education in a college or work environment. The program promoted adult living skills, while members participated in activities related to all areas of transition and developed relationships with same-age peers.

After graduating with her master’s, Amy pursued other professional areas of interest, but always made sure to continue to help others in her free time. She was a volunteer for the Ambulatory Treatment Center at MD Anderson for a year before she was recruited to assist on the pediatric floor. She continued her time at MD Anderson under the Ronald McDonald House (RMH) program for almost five years before she was hired full time as a house manager at the RMH Main Campus. Here, she assisted families whose children were diagnosed with life-threatening illnesses and coordinated with hospitals and social workers to ensure continued support and care during such a difficult time.

Amy is a third generation Houstonian and attended Saint Agnes Academy, where she followed in her mother and grandmother’s footsteps. She enjoys spending time with family and friends, trying new restaurants and taking weekend trips out into the Texas countryside.
