About Me

"Maybe the journey isn't so much about becoming anything. Maybe it's about un-becoming everything that isn't really you so you can be who you were meant to be in the first place." - Paul Coehlo

Hello and welcome. I am Amanda from Oklahoma. I have a PhD in Human Development Family Science and am a Licensed Professional Counselor and LPC Supervisor. I believe a key piece to therapy is unlearning all the lies we've believed about ourselves and our limitations. I would like to work with you to empower you to become your true self and feel the peace that accompanies such authenticity.

I have years of experience working with clients from various backgrounds and have curated my career to serve those who feel unheard and unseen.
In a world of constant change, I assist individuals and families with living full satisfying lives while in the midst of the uncertainty by identifying what is controllable and learning to find peace in letting go of what is not.

I have specialized in assisting individuals and families affected by disabilities, physical, developmental, and intellectual. I hold space for siblings, parents, caregivers, and individuals with disabilities to explore and process the complexities surrounding their lives.

If you are feeling the effects of a constantly changing world, I would love to help you uncover your path to peace and enjoy life, every day.

I have only been using the system for a few weeks and can already feel a difference in myself. Dr. Cothern has helped me with ways to focus my thoughts so I am not always berating myself.
