About Me

My name is Amanda Daugherty, and I'm a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in the state of Indiana. I earned my Master of Social Work degree, specializing in Children and Families, from Indiana University in 2007. I've worked in many different settings with adolescents, adults and families who have a variety of personal issues such as depression/anxiety, stress, family problems, LGBT stressors, trauma/abuse, addictions of all kinds, relationships/parenting and more. Over the past 13 years as a clinician, my experience has taught me that the most important aspect of counseling by far is the connection and comfort you feel with the person you choose to share your personal struggles. I believe we can all grow through challenging experiences by increasing our self-awareness. Sometimes another person, one who isn't in our immediate circle, can offer a perspective or additional support that give us movement on a difficult situation when we feel stuck. It would be my privilege to be that person for you. We all want to be able to share our personal truths and be accepted and understood. I believe it's very important to be open-minded and non-judgmental when someone shares their personal story or experiences with me. Our relationship with our self and others has worth and is useful to explore in counseling.

You are welcome to message me anytime through Better Help. The frequency with which you can have access to a counselor to work through day to day emotions and problem solving is extremely beneficial for most and a nice change from traditional outpatient counseling. I usually check messages three times each day, seven days per week. I offer messaging, live chat and phone or video sessions. My availability will primarily be in the evenings and weekends. Please note that what you see in my calendar may not reflect my only availability so you will always want to check that out with me through messaging first.

I look forward to working with you!
