Amy Halloran-Steiner is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker, Certified Alcohol and Drug Counselor and Certified Teacher of Yoga Calm®. She is a graduate of Portland State University and has worked with children for over 20 years. Amy has been in private practice since 2006 in McMinnville, where she also teaches yoga to children and families. Amy sees her professional role with young clients as a village member who supports their growth and strengthens the link between their inside selves and their outside lives. She has stumbled upon the powerful forces of nature, breath, movement, fantasy and laughter, and she helps clients braid these forces into a rope that provides a lifeline when plain talking fails. In a training capacity, Amy loves to share with colleagues her own eclectic mix of activities to help young people know and trust themselves and to help bring light and energy into the therapy process.
