Hello! My name is Amadea and I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in Idaho. I have assisted clients with their mental health concerns in various settings: primary care, addiction recovery, and in a traditional mental health agency. I have experience with both in-person counseling as well as telehealth services and am also experienced with brief counseling as well.
I enjoy helping clients manage their stress, anxiety, and depression. I am a trauma-informed clinician and trained and experienced in working in the areas of trauma and abuse. I have experience working with loss and grief-related challenges, life transitions, and in assisting clients build a healthy self-image.
My primary approach is acceptance and mindfulness informed therapies as well as empowerment therapies. Specific approaches I am trained and experienced in are Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), Compassion-Focused Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, and Mindfulness-based therapies. I also draw from several empowerment approaches (Feminist Theory and Relational-Cultural Theory) which seeks to highlight personal strengths and acknowledge social and environmental impacts on the human experience.
I believe you are the expert in your experience and I am honored to be invited to join you in your journey towards a more fulfilling life. Our time together is collaborative in nature. We will tailor treatment plans and sessions to meet your unique and specific needs.
I am honored to be allowed to support & empower you in any way that you need. Even in our most desperate, darkest hours there is light and hope. I would be humbled to join you on your journey towards that place of peace.

She is very sensitive and understanding. I appreciate having a safe place to discuss my concerns and her desire to help me overcome my obstacles.

Amadea is awesome. She has structured days where we talk and work on specific issues and then other days are more relaxed so I can still talk about what’s on my mind. I feel very confident with the progress I’ve made with her so far and I will continue to work with her until I no longer feel the need to.

Amadea De Groot is amazing!! She responds back to journal entries and she really cares about what you have to say. I had someone else originally and switched to Amadea and I am 100% glad that I took that step.
