Amy is a licensed clinical social worker, psychotherapist, and the author of the book, 13 Things Mentally Strong People Don’t Do.*
She dealt with a lot of personal tragedy in her life in a short period of time, and realized that having good habits wasn’t enough. She also had to get rid of bad habits.
In 2013, she wrote the list, 13 Things Mentally Strong People Don’t Do. It went viral and was read and shared by millions of people in a matter of days.
