Great therapist, kind and open-minded person. Expertise in anxiety, trauma, and much more. I felt understood immediately and reached my therapy goal to start recognizing irrational thoughts, negative feelings, and bad coping mechanisms/behavior better. Can highly recommend Amanda!

Amanda is great and sweet, she understood and listened to me and has been checking in with me regularly, which I really appreciate!

Work with me!
