About me

I am a Professional Clinical Mental Health Counselor (LPCC) licensed in New Mexico with 14 years of professional work experience and 6 additional years of case management experience. I have experience in helping clients with stress and anxiety, trauma, coping with addictions, lgbt-related issues, & motivation, self esteem, and confidence. I believe in treating everyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion. I will tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs. I have an immense amount of hope and have seen the amazing and awesome power of resiliency. Taking the first step to sign up for therapy can take courage; be proud of yourself for getting started! “The most beautiful people we have known are those who have known defeat, known suffering, known struggle, known loss, and have found their way out of the depths. These persons have an appreciation, a sensitivity, and an understanding of life that fills them with compassion, gentleness, and a deep loving concern. Beautiful people do not just happen.” ~ Elisabeth Kubler-Ross

Amanda was the third therapist that I was assigned to and she was the right person for m. She listens well to my needs and compliments me when I am successful at changing behavior. She has always been supportive and is very responsive between sessions also.

Amanda has been a lifesaver. Her compassion, insight, professionalism, and encouragement have provided the support I've needed for quite a while. Working with Amanda has empowered me to have confidence in exploring old issues, as well as new challenges. I really appreciate working with her.
