AMIE POST, MA, LCMFT

Amie Post has been as student of Bowen theory since 2001 when she was a master’s student in Marriage and Family Therapy at Seton Hill University. She deepened her study of Bowen theory in the Postgraduate Training Program 2012-2016 and served as a Clinical Intern 2015-16 at the Bowen Center for the Study of the Family.

Over the course of her career Ms. Post has worked with humans across the lifespan from being a two-year old preschool teacher to assisting older adults in a nursing home. Having recently retired from Lay Ecclesial Ministry serving as a Director of Faith Formation in the Catholic Church, Ms. Post is now serving as the Executive/Clinical Director at the Family Crisis Center of Baltimore County, a domestic violence service provider. She maintains a private clinical practice in Towson, MD and is a Clinical Associate at the Bowen Center in Washington DC.

Ms. Post is interested in developing an understanding of the evolutionary roots for emotional process in microbes, the emerging thinking of the holobiont, and the history of evolutionary thinking. In clinical practice Ms. Post seeks to understand how the application of Bowen theory can be most useful in assisting families who are experiencing relationship difficulties. Of late, Ms. Post has been particularly interested in understanding how Bowen theory is most effectively communicated to the world.
