Amy Pruitt, LMFT

Sole Proprietor

Amy Pruitt is a dedicated therapist who, after nearly 20 years in community mental health, sought to revolutionize the field of therapy. Recognizing the need for a different approach, she established her private practice with a mission to provide client-centered therapy focused on quality rather than quantity. Amy's therapeutic style is intentionally conversational, fostering an environment where clients feel at ease expressing themselves. Guided by a strengths-based perspective, she firmly believes that individuals are not inherently broken or crazy. Instead, she emphasizes the importance of understanding people within the context of their lives and experiences.

The name "Surf, Sand and Sage" holds deep personal significance for Amy, as it was the name of a business owned by her grandparent. Her family highly values the connections and relationships that family brings, whether through blood or chosen bonds, and they celebrate the wisdom and experiences passed down through generations. Amy firmly believes that one's roots shape their identity and considers where individuals come from as an integral part of who they are.

Amy's grandmother-in-law, Merle Pruitt, founded a local non-profit organization dedicated to educating people of all ages about the early pioneers and Native Americans in Pierce County. Merle's original business, an antique shop named Surf, Sand and Sage, was situated in Seattle and became the catalyst for her visionary legacy. The establishment of the Pioneer Farm Museum and Ohop Indian Village stands as a testament to Merle's vision and continues to inspire others to embrace and cherish their own stories and heritage.

When the time came for Amy to open her practice, she humbly requested permission and received the blessing to honor her family and their remarkable legacy by adopting the name Surf, Sand & Sage. Through her practice, Amy strives to carry forward the values of connection, heritage, and community that her family holds dear.

Amy Pruitt welcomes you to embark on a transformative therapeutic journey where you will be supported, understood, and empowered to embrace your own unique story. Together, you will navigate the path of self-discovery, resilience, and growth, guided by the unwavering belief that every individual's experiences and background contribute to their wholeness and wellbeing.
