Hi, I’m Amy.
I have gone by several names through my life: Amy Lee, Ame, Mama (even before I was a Mother), and Pie.
I am a nature lover, I love the season changes here in Upstate New York, sightings of wildlife everything from fox to bear in my backyard and to taking photos of my children playing in the beautiful landscape that Upstate New York offers.
I love all things cooking. I believe soup is love. My Italian Grandmother taught me that. I like cooking over campfire in the great outdoors. And I love fireside coffee with mint and cardamom.
I suffered from chronic illness (endometriosis and pelvic congestion) since I was 13 years old. Despite the possibility of challenge in having my own children, I did. Two miracle kids. I love them to the moon and back!
My husband and I met in college, where I used to study dance and he studied music. We don’t dance or sing outside of the house but cooking in the kitchen together we can have some fun!
I wrote a poetry book on the intersection of being a mother and having chronic illness. I think poetry is power and love.
I am a big theater fan. Hamilton is my jam.
And books, all the books!!
My work is grounded in bodywork and mindfulness techniques supporting modern day families, just like mine. I invite us all to slow down, to notice, to learn, and to grow.
Also, I believe this stuff should be accessible. A little secret you need to know although I’ve studied and practiced meditation for nearly 20 years. I still eat pizza and play video games with my family.
The work I do is all meant to be a celebration of families and the power of the belonging in your body, your mind, your spirit. Whether it is in pregnancy, birth, parenthood, and beyond.
