Hello there and welcome!
My name is Amy Wu (she/her/hers), and thank you for visiting Clinical Impressions! I am a marriage and family therapist based in the Chicago area, and I created Clinical Impressions to provide high-quality headshots to mental health professionals.
Amy has been a close colleague of mine for the past decade, and I have used Clinical Impressions for photos and videos in both my corporate job and private practice. Amy artfully integrates therapy and photography in her work. Every time I work with Amy, I feel completely seen. She makes every effort to capture who I am as a clinician and person. Her warm, compassionate demeanor always makes me feel at complete ease. And her direction and photography expertise make me feel confident and poised. She clearly cares about her work, and it shines through even from behind the lens. If you want a photography experience focused on what makes you uniquely you, I couldn't recommend Amy more.

It is more important to click with people
than to click the shutter.
As therapists, we have been taught that the most important part of our work occurs in the room with our clients, away from the public eye. However, in our digital world, our headshots are the first forms of connection that we build with our current and prospective clients, other mental health professionals, and referral partners.
I created Clinical Impressions to bring my experience as a practicing therapist to the photographs that I make of other therapists. As a therapist myself, I understand the importance of having a headshot that conveys warmth, empathy, and authenticity.
My approach as a photographer is parallel to my approach as a therapist. To me, it's not just about the end result of the photo; it's also about the experience of being photographed. I aim to create time and space to connect with the people I photograph, helping them feel more comfortable in front of the camera. Instead of choosing people's photos for them, I empower people to be actively involved in creating their own headshots. With affordable packages and high-quality images, I hope to help therapists increase accessibility to their desired client populations.
I have been both a film and digital photographer for almost 20 years, and when I'm not meeting with my clients, I love to go on photo adventures, collect film cameras, and make prints in the darkroom. My photographic style is natural, bright, and warm, and my goal in my portrait work is to help each of my subjects feel and look like the most authentic versions of whoever they are choosing to embody in that moment.
