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 15 years experience working in the mental health field. I have worked in a variety of settings such as outpatient, crisis intervention, school, and currently private practice. I have experience working with a broad range of clinical issues such as anxiety, depression, ADHD, family issues, divorce, blended family issues, trauma, grief, abuse, parenting issues, and behavioral issues.

I primarily use evidence based techniques such as cognitive-behavioral therapy, motivational interviewing, solution-focused therapy, and problem-solving 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!

Reviews

Written by A.U. on Apr 05, 2020 after counseling with Amanda 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.
