Amy Ream (Staff Therapist and Mentor) has Masters degrees in organizational management and clinical psychology. For many years, as a business consultant and manager, she helped companies of different sizes—from start ups to large corporations—evaluate their systems, processes, and personnel issues and develop effective solutions to improve their functioning.
Throughout her tenure in management, Amy specialized in understanding the “people issues” that were often at the root of organizational challenges and gradually shifted her focus to include supporting people more directly in addressing challenges in their personal lives. She worked as a professional organizer for several years, working especially with hoarders, and in 2012 she appeared in an episode of the television show, The Hoarders. Also in 2012, she earned an Master’s degree in psychology and became a Marriage and Family Therapist (MFT).
Currently, Amy continues to apply her skills in supporting people in addressing a wide range of personal and professional challenges in both business and therapeutic settings. She works as an MFT based in Las Vegas, providing psychotherapy to individuals and couples. As part of the Crisis Intervention Team of trauma therapists in Las Vegas, she worked with many victims of the mass shooting there in October 2017. Based on her work helping people deal with this tragedy, Amy was interviewed by The Guardian newspaper and asked to write the forward to a book about dealing with catastrophes, Healing a Community: Lessons for Recovery after a Large-Scale Trauma, by Melissa Glaser. She is also a certified Reiki healer.
Amy first discovered the Enneagram over 15 years ago while working as a business consultant. She studied the system in the Palmer/Daniels Enneagram in the Narrative Tradition school, and she was a teacher and member of the board of directors of the Enneagram Las Vegas group for two years. She continued her Enneagram education with Beatrice Chestnut and Uranio Paes, and now serves as a staff therapist, spiritual advisor, and mentor for the Chestnut Paes Enneagram Academy. Her passion is helping people heal and discover their own inner wisdom and capacity for personal and professional transformation.
