Amanda Reid is the real deal. This isn't the kind of half-listening and canned nonsense I've gotten from plenty of therapists. She listens to the actual content of what you are saying and takes notes. She actually has empathy and can express that empathy in a constructive way, and has awesome resources to share to make the most of your time between sessions too. I am thrilled to be working with someone who really makes me feel seen, heard, and understood.
