Amanda is a great therapist. I was initially paired with a therapist that I couldn't really relate to and felt very disconnected from, but Amanda is the complete opposite. She knows her shit and gives great new perspectives on issues that might seem big, but that in reality just need a simple reframe. Excited to continue my journey in this world with Amanda <3

She’s great, she relates, she listens, and she provides guidance.
