I am a licensed counselor in both Illinois and Oregon and have been conducting therapy sessions for 6 years. I have experience working with a wide range of concerns such as anxiety, depression, LGBTQI issues, trauma, and aging and life transitions. I strive to be culturally competent and aware, and will welcome you however you identify and in whatever life place you may be in.
My approach is integrative and utilizes person centered, cognitive behavioral, acceptance and commitment, and psychodynamic modalities. I will offer support, guidance, and structure to help you find the courage to cope with difficulties, and empower you to explore underlying dynamics of mood, thought, emotion, behavior, and relational styles. Together, we will develop a safe and therapeutic space to assist you in successfully moving through life’s transitions and experiences, and find spiritual, emotional, and physical life balance.
I look forward to working with you!

Amanda came to rescue when I was facing dark times. I seek comfort in her expertise and look forward to my progress with her. My life is improving and I thank Amanda for giving me confidence to move forward.
Amanda is incredibly helpful and understanding. She is able to dive deep into larger issues and insecurities, but she also is able to keep things light as well. She responds quickly to messages and has been super consistent in live sessions.
