I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in rural Western North Carolina, with over 30 years of experience. I specialize in working with trauma and abuse, grief and depression, anxiety, and relationship struggles. While in private practice now, I have worked in mental health clinics, a family couseling clinic, hospice, and in an Army military setting with domestic violence.
Life can be so difficult sometimes, and often it helps to talk to someone other than a friend or family member to sort through problems. I can start with you right where you are and assist you in working through whatever problems you are currently facing, or with issues from the past that seem to continue to bother you in your life.
I think that you will find me to be warm, empathic, non-judgmental, and caring. I would like to help you on your journey to feeling better about or resolving whatever situation you are struggling with.
35yrs in practice

Amanda not only listened to me attentively throughout our sessions but also provided me with other ways of thinking about the feelings or interactions I had experienced that week. She was extremely helpful in my battles with self-esteem and her willingness to keep all forms of communication open was very kind.

Written on Jun 17, 2016 after therapy with Margaret for 2 weeks on issues concerning stress, anxiety, relationship, trauma and abuse, intimacy-related, and depression
Amanda seems to be a sincere person who is genuinely concerned about the people she works with. Amanda was diligent about communicating with me through a week of a depressive episode. Since these episodes are triggered by any contact with my ex-husband, there was little she could do to address that problem but she was there offering concern and advice as I worked through the most difficult part.

Amanda has been great to work with. She has a way of emphasizing and sharing similar experiences that makes me feel like it is okay to feel the way that I do and that I am not alone. She asks questions that make me think and reconsider what I'm looking for and expecting during this tough time. I look forward to working more with her - she has been a great help.

So far, my experience with Amanda has been great. It's early on, but she has been very quick to respond, and being able to write all of this out has been a helpful reflection period for me.
Written on Mar 23, 2015 after therapy with Margaret for 3 days
Amanda is a huge help. She is compassionate and empathetic, and has a gentle way of repeating your words back to you in a way that makes you realize what you're saying. I highly recommend her. The only reason I did not give her five stars is because I worked with her only for the one-week trial and we didn't really delve deeply into any single issue. I'm sure that if I needed her ongoing assistance, she would continue her excellent guidance.

I have been very pleased with Amanda and her ability to interpret and understand the things that I have written to her about. Very understanding and helpful in her responses.
Written on Aug 13, 2014 after therapy with Margaret for 1 month on issues concerning relationship
I feel Amanda Burts is a caring professional but is more than a character on my computer -- she seems to know how to reach me through my screen and be a real person, someone whom I can relate to. Although I have not been counseling with her very long, I feel our sessions have helped me keep going in my life here.
