Amy Carpenter began her career in child welfare, where she worked in the fields of foster care and adoption. During her graduate tenure at Boston University, she was awarded a child welfare practitioners stipend allowing her to receive additional training in family systems. Amy was responsible for the kinship initiative implemented in 1997 in Lynn, Massachusetts. The model was later used as a pilot for a nation-wide protocol offering children entering foster care the opportunity to stay connected to their birth families.
Licensed as an independent Clinician in 2001, Amy held a private practice in Los Angeles where began her interest in Kundalini Yoga as a pathway to personal awareness and healing. In 2005, she moved to Maine and joined the Midcoast Integrated Health Collaborative, a grassroots organization connecting Doctors with Clinicians to improve client care. In 2007, Amy co-initiated Esprit counseling, one of the first school-based counseling programs in Midcoast Maine.
