In a very short period of time, Amanda has opened up parts of my mind I either have forgotten about or was not aware. She has provided me numerous quite helpful tools to continue my work outside of the sessions. I am very appreciative of the effort she puts in. Amanda challenges me in a safe, caring manner. I look forward to the journey together.

So deeply grateful to know that people like this exist and are working in a field and space where they can do the most good! Amanda is such a great person who I was assigned to with divine timing. I have heard it takes time for someone to find a good match in therapy; but I was truly blessed to get an intuitive and thoughtful professional who held space and moved at my pace. Amanda was an understanding and supportive professional who guided me through trauma and used gentle but powerful healing energy and expertise and gave me the space to pick myself up and grow through the darkness into the light. She taught me so much, met me where I stood. Challenged my toxic thoughts and patterns and helped me move through it and move forward. Thank you so much for seeing me through to the other side of the pain. She is truly gifted at what she does and anyone who works with her will see themselves grow exponentially with her guidance.
