I’ve been seeing Amanda for the past 3 years. She has helped me through big and small life changes and has given me so many helpful tools for mental health. I don’t know where I would be without her!

Written on Mar 02, 2023 after therapy with Amanda for 2 years and 7 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, and self esteem

I am so grateful for Amanda. Our weekly sessions and her encouragement in between video sessions are genuinely helping me survive the current hell I am living. She is so smart and offers wonderful solutions to help me heal and create new thought patterns. I have never felt judged or like I should hold anything back. This healing journey is not for the weak, but I am so grateful for all I am learning from Amanda to become stronger, to set and keep my boundaries, and to love myself more.

Amanda is one of the most compassionate, kind, and empathetic people (in general) I have ever met, and is the best counselor I have had. She effortlessly makes me feel cared for and listened to. I highly recommend her and think she would be perfect for anyone

I couldn’t have asked for a better counselor. She’s always responsive, attentive, and offers great solutions. I feel like she supports me through my goals rather than forcing goals.

Written on Dec 18, 2020 after therapy with Amanda for 5 months on issues concerning stress, anxiety, relationship issues, self esteem, career difficulties, and compassion fatigue

Amanda has already been so helpful, knowledgeable and supportive even in the short weeks we’ve been in contact. She is flexible with scheduling and offers alternatives to my hectic schedule if needed. She is available and responds quickly. She has been perceptive to my specific needs and underlying areas/causes of my challenges. I highly recommend her.
