Amy L. Girimonti

Licensed Master Social Worker

"I am passionate about assisting clients to achieve sustainable healing and harmony, as we are all worthy of love and belonging. Our wounds are often the openings into the best and most beautiful parts of us."
Amy L. Girimonti, LMSW, AASW

In 2017 after working for over 10 years in hospice and palliative care, Amy began working and specializing in the treatment of eating disorders. Since then she has worked in all levels of care supporting clients of all ages with disordered eating, body image issues, low self-esteem, anxiety, depression, self-harm/suicidal ideation, LGBTQ+ affirming therapy, trauma, and interpersonal conflict.

Amy is a board-licensed master social worker and received her Bachelor’s in Psychology from Nova Southeastern University and her Master’s in Social Work from the University of Denver. She holds a certificate in Animal Assisted Social Work from the Institute of the Human Animal Connection and partook in the Professional Program in Eating and Weight Disorders at the University of California, Berkeley.

Amy’s goal is to provide a space for clients to find relief from negative/obsessive thoughts, restore health, resolve conflicted relationships, improve mood and achieve the life they desire. While sometimes therapy can be uncomfortable, Amy is gifted in building a trusting partnership with her clients. She has learned through experience that when this happens the possibilities for change can be endless.

Get To Know Amy

  1. You deserve “you” time.
  2. Therapy doesn’t make you “weak”; it makes you smart.
  3. You’re stronger than you know.

I started working at a hospice at age 20-it shaped my views on life and what’s important to me.

A bagel store; I still love a good bagel and a coffee.

  1. Find a therapist you and your child feel comfortable with.
  2. A failure (or perceived failure) is not a mistake, it may simply be the best one can do under the circumstances.
  3. You got this-keep in mind that not all progress will be obvious and tangible.

Kindness, sincerity, growth, collaboration-making a difference.

Laughter, kindness, community and sincerity.

Walking alongside individuals on their journey is a privilege.

My mother told me to surround myself with those who’s courage is contagious.

Our Testimonials

What People Are Saying

Kristine doesn't just believe in and understand the science of nutrition and eating behaviors, she lights a path of healing with positivity, honesty, and safety. I highly recommend her to anyone who is ready to move past food fears to a place of lasting health and recovery.
Grateful Client
Type II Diabetes/Eating Disorder
Kristine has a remarkable combination of clinical knowledge, sound teaching practices, warmth, and firmness that enables her to excel at her work. She is an excellent team player while still being an independent thinker not afraid to express and defend her opinions.
Gail Hall
When an eating disorder took over my life, Kristine was perhaps the biggest reason why I was able to take back control of my life and physical/mental health. I cannot thank her enough. Kristine is the very best person you want to seek out if you are struggling with food/eating/body challenges.
