Amy Champeau, LMFT, MFA is a Jungian psychoanalyst, somatic psychotherapist, practitioner of Integral Bodywork®, grandmother, and long-time student in Zen meditation. She currently trains in Zen under her teacher, Kyoen Honda Roshi of the Chozen-Ji International Zen Monastery based in Honolulu, Hawaii.
Inspired by her deep need for healing from significant trauma, Amy has spent decades studying a wide range of healing modalities that combine western psychotherapy, bodywork, trauma release methods, Zen training, and creative expression. As a guide and companion, Amy utilizes all the tools of her training to help people discover who they truly are. She recognizes the courage and commitment it takes to walk a path of transformation and seeks to encourage, support, nurture, and facilitate the process of diving “beneath the surface” to discover a “deeper” place within, releasing the obstacles to accepting oneself as one really is, “warts and all.” This acceptance can lead to the possibility of living life with emotional fullness and authenticity, moment by moment.
