After a decade long career as an actor, Amos refocused his passion for storytelling to be of service to individuals, couples, and families on their quest to reconcile relationships and explore identity. As a trained couples and family therapist, Amos believes that our reality is constructed by past, present, and future relationships. He believes that guided introspection leading to actionable connections is a tonic in an increasingly isolating, and volatile world.
A native New Yorker, Amos grew up in an artistic household in the Hudson Valley, where play was encouraged as a means of expression and exploration. From an early age the theatre was a space for him to channel his energy, hone his talents, and most importantly, feel embraced by a community of likeminded folks. He discovered yoga and meditation as a teenager to help balance the high-intensity training in the performing arts and has consistently returned to this practice throughout his life to maintain equilibrium. He completed a 200-hour Vinyasa Yoga Teacher Training in 2014 and a Trauma informed training in 2018.
Amos is a member of the Steering Committee at The Institute for Human Identity, the nation’s first and longest running provider of LGBTQ+- affirming therapy, where he serves as the Intern Coordinator and Staff Therapist. He has been involved in the New York Marriage and Family Therapy Network (NYMFTN) since 2018, leading major initiatives for the past two years to increase diversity, equity, and inclusivity. Amos currently lives in New Jersey with his husband, their newly adopted child, and dog HattieMae. For pleasure, Amos enjoys cooking, hiking in nature, and exploring all of the rich cultural variety New York City has to offer.
Amos will strive to meet you as you are, meaningfully deconstruct aspects of your life which may be constricting your potential, while celebrating your unique strengths.
