Founder / President

Dr. Amy Boyers has run a private practice since 2001, providing therapy to adolescents and adults with a focus on women’s health, eating disorders, anxiety and mood disorders, and behavioral medicine. She opened Boyers Recovery Support Services to address the needs of clients who require more intensive outpatient support. Between the two, she has been able to treat individuals in their homes and in the community, keeping them out of treatment centers or helping them successfully stabilize after a residential stay.

After graduating with honors in psychology from the University of Pennsylvania, Amy was awarded a prestigious U.S. Department of Defense psychological research fellowship at the University of Miami where she completed her master’s and doctoral degrees. She completed her pre-doctoral internship at the University of Miami Counseling Center and her post-doctoral residencies at University of Miami Department of Psychology and The Renfrew Center. She is adjunct faculty at the University of Miami Counseling Center and was the founding president of the Miami Chapter of the International Association of Eating Disorders Professionals.
