You have taken the courageous first step to feeling better! I am so grateful you are here. My name is Amy Bichsel and I am a Master's Level Clinical Social Worker (LSCSW). I graduated from the University of Nebraska-Omaha in 2008 and began working in a community mental health center with individual who were struggling with an array of concerns like depression, anxiety, trauma, PTSD, adjustment, addiction, just to name a few. My therapy approach is client centered in that I do have ideas of how we can begin to work together to help you feel better, but I meet you where you are. I strongly believe that our thoughts impact our feelings/behaviors and ultimately our actions. Sometimes it is easy to identify and sometimes these are more deeply rooted which sometimes can create symptoms and issues in areas of your life that are important to you and those you love. But don't worry, I am going to walk with you every step of the way. We will figure this out together.
I have been a Christian since childhood and grew up in the church. I attended the same church from birth until I left for college. I know the Lord has a plan for you and will "never leave you or forsake you"- Hebrews 13:5-6. I want to listen to your needs and help you turn them over to the Lord as you are able. That can be a hard thing to do, to let go of control. But we will pray about it together.
A little about me: I am originally from Nebraska and am a mom to a busy 6 year old and a rambunctious dog! I enjoy reading, meditation, learning new things, and walking outdoors.
- Stress, Anxiety
- Trauma and abuse
I also have experience in Relationship issues, Family conflicts, Self esteem, Bipolar disorder, Coping with life changes

Amy has been an absolute God send for me!! She has a wonderful way of making me feel at ease when sharing, and has helped untangle so much of the mess going on in my head these past few months. Her ability to take my ramblings ;) and not only help make sense of them, but give me tools to work through them in a healthy manner. I cannot say enough good things about Amy and FaithfulCounseling because the flexibility and in-home privacy is a wonderful option for me.
Amy has helped me to navigate my past experiences in ways that are spiritually and mentally good. Having her has helped me in ways I never expected. I came into this with a goal in mind, and she has taken that goal and worked back through my past experience to start at the beginning.
