Amy D Montague Ph.D., PSY 16740 – Psychologist

I am a private practice psychologist serving clients in and around Newport Beach, California. As your therapist, it is my priority to create a therapeutic atmosphere that promotes growth and positive change, for you. I look forward to working with you to address your challenges and realize your goals. Therapy is a process that can move you toward being the healthiest version of yourself and living the life you desire.

Treatment Approach

field pathI use a variety of approaches to address my clients’ unique needs. My many successful treatment plans utilize cognitive-behavioral  and psycho-dynamic therapy quickly moving toward a tailored treatment plan  that  sustains  growth. Additionally, there is a body of research that supports the practice of self-compassion and mindfulness in psychotherapy. Neuroscience research reveals the fact that individuals practicing these techniques are happier, more resilient, and better equipped to heal painful memories from the past. It is my honor and mission to help my clients move past what’s blocking them from reaching their full potential individually and in their relationships.

“What lies behind us and what lies before us are tiny matters compared to what lies within us.”
