Amanda Emerson

LCSW

About me

I'm currently licensed as an LCSW in AR and able to provide telehealth in FL as well.

Healing requires honest care without judgment. In order to provide individualized treatment and support, I will work cooperatively with you to clarify your treatment goals and draw from a variety of methodologies to create a plan that fits your needs. My style is warm, open, encouraging, and direct. I consider myself an active therapist, combining experience, education, creativity, with a realistic and effective approach to treatment. To me, an individual should be treated as a whole, including the mind, the body, and the (soul/self)- whatever that is to them.

I have expertise in many areas including complex trauma, abuse, grief counseling, mood disorders, personality disorders, relationship complexities, certified transgender care provider, autism spectrum specialist, ADHD, anxiety, depression, sex therapy, trauma yoga, internal family systems, LGBTQ+ complexities,relationship complexities, and coping with life transitions.

The clients I work with say that I am compassionate and that they feel seen and heard. I am a clear communicator who effortlessly builds and maintains meaningful relationships with colleagues, clients, and the community.

Amanda has done her best to help me but I guess maybe I’m just not ready. I think when I am ready she will be an excellent person to be my therapist as we had great rapport and I felt like I could really learn something from her. Hopefully one of these days (sooner rather than later) I will be ready and I can get her back.
