About Me

Welcome, and thank you for taking the time in learning more about me! My name is Amanda and I am a licensed professional clinical counselor in the State of Ohio. I graduated from Walsh University with a Masters degree in Counseling and Human Development with a Mental Health Specialty. I have 17 years experience working in the mental health field. I have worked in a variety of settings such as outpatient, crisis intervention, school, and private practice. I have experience working with a broad range of clinical issues such as anxiety, depression, family issues, divorce, blended family issues, trauma, grief, self-esteem, parenting issues, and behavioral issues.

I primarily use evidence based techniques such as Cognitive-Behavioral therapy, Motivational Interviewing, Solution-Focused therapy, Problem-Solving Therapy, and Dialectical Behavior Therapy. I believe therapy takes time and consistency. It is my role to help you navigate through your issues, and to help you develop the appropriate tools to manage/cope with these specific issues. Together we can work on establishing your goals. There may be times where I will assign therapeutic homework assignments to encourage work outside of our sessions. I look forward in helping you in any way I can. Thank you again for taking the time to learn more about me!

I have really gained a lot of insight and skills working with Mandy. She provides excellent reflective listening and is validating, while also encouraging me to consider alternatives I may not have initially noticed. She is respectful, comforting, and genuine.

Amanda is extremely professional. She notices what I say, even when I don't. My life has improved since speaking to her. There has been so much that she was able to recover, that I didn't realize was still bothering me.

Mandy has been such a huge help these past few months in dealing with all areas of concern. She gives me a safe space to talk out my feelings and help better understand them. She has an abundance of tools that allow me to better cope and handle situations, and I feel I’ve seen growth already in the short time working with her. Incredibly thankful to have her.

Written by A.I. on Feb 17, 2021 after therapy with Amanda (Mandy) for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, parenting issues, anger management, and compassion fatigue

Many is a huge blessing. From our first meeting, she helped me take a step back from the story of hopelessness I was telling myself and see a new perspective based in truth rather than fear. I'm so grateful for BetterHelp and Mandy. I've got a much more optimistic outlook now, knowing this is going to be a huge positive piece in my mental health journey.

I have had 3 sessions with Amanda and feel very comfortable with her. She listens carefully to my concerns and is thoughtful in her responses, always offering appropriate suggestions or asking questions to allow for further exploration. She sends worksheets which are very informative and help me understand the issues I am processing. I would recommend Amanda to friends and family.

Mandy is an expert at what she does, and she takes the time to listen carefully to her clients, and respond appropriately. She also reviews every assignment that she gives clients, and makes careful notes to discuss in session, which is so reassuring and helpful! I love working with her, and would recommend her services to anyone in need.

Written by E.M. on May 04, 2020 after therapy with Amanda (Mandy) for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, intimacy-related issues, parenting issues, and career difficulties

Amanda has been incredibly helpful to me during this unprecedented time. We relate with several things that I've brought up in my session which always makes me feel like I'm not alone. It's been a nice outlet having someone to chat to that can offer advice and support. She listens and offers a variety of solutions to try out. She sends optional tools to help filter through and manage the feelings I've been having! I highly recommend Amanda!

Written by A.U. on Apr 05, 2020 after therapy with Amanda (Mandy) for 2 months on issues concerning stress, anxiety, and coping with life changes

Amanda is great! She actively listens, gets clarification instead of assuming things, and breaks down a lot of ‘psych terms’ when needed. She knows her stuff but is kind and patient about it.

Work with me!
