Amanda Adams is a wonderful therapist. She understands how my brain works and helps me better understand myself. She explains the clinical background in an easy to understand way and adapts examples to fit with my personality / interests. She genuinely cares about her patients and their well-being. She offers helpful suggestions to alleviate stress and keep myself grounded. She is truly fabulous and I feel incredibly lucky I was matched with her for this journey

I came into therapy skeptical on whether it could actually help and have been blown away. My outlook on life has changed for the better. Amanda has been so kind and patient with me. I really feel like I can trust her with anything and that she has my back for every challenge in life. I didn't realize how many things were an issue in my life until we sat down and took a very critical look at my biggest obstacles. Thank you Amanda for helping me fix my life ❤️

Amanda is one of a kind! She isn’t afraid to say what she knows you don’t want to hear and still says it from a place of love and support. She can step in and be the best friend, the mom, the tough love or just the listener. Therapy with her the last few months has changed my life and no one has made me comfortable with emotions and healing like Amanda has. She has truly made me feel like family and I don’t know what I’d do without her!

Simply put, Amanda Adams is my perfect therapy match. She listens to my concerns and clearly prepares for meeting with me by reading the messages, journal entries and worksheets I send her throughout the week. She cares and helps me navigate my life challenges and traumas, but always works to use my personal strengths to keep me in the drivers seat of my own life.
