Amy C. O’Neill, MS, LPC

Survivor, Resilience Expert, Therapist & Motivational Speaker

Amy C. O’Neill has built a career in mental health over two and a half decades, and traveled a personal path that has proven over and over again that resilience is key to truly living healthy, both in mind and body. Resilience enables us to face tragedy and still take the necessary steps to go through. Resilience is mandatory for us to recover to well when obstacles interfere. And, as Amy can attest, resilience can be harnessed. After methodically training and successfully completing three Ironman Triathlons, and the prestigious Boston Marathon five times, Amy knows how mental and physical focus can lead to success. Perhaps her biggest life test was being thrust into the role of a Boston Marathon Bombing Survivor. Amy’s goal is to share her keen and personal insight with others on how we can not only survive challenges, but also thrive and create a life we love.
