About me

I am a clinical social worker licensed in Missouri with over 20 years of experience working as a therapist, leading and directing behavioral health clinics and specialty programs. I have provided comprehensive counseling and case management services for a full spectrum of mental health needs including depression and anxiety, substance use disorders, post-traumatic stress disorder, relationship concerns, parenting and child issues, career challenges, transition and change, resiliency, stress management, sleep hygiene, and health concerns.

I have been successful in developing therapeutic relationships with people from a wide range of backgrounds, using culturally competent counseling techniques. I use a variety of evidence-based therapeutic approaches tailored to meet your unique needs, including cognitive behavior therapy, exposure therapies, and motivational interviewing.

It takes courage to seek a happier, healthier and more fulfilled version of yourself, and to take the first steps towards change. If you are ready to take that next step I am here to support and empower you.
I look forward to working with you!

Amanda is an asset to the BetterHelp community. She is one of the most genuine people I have met. She is knowledgeable and tailors her sessions to target areas of growth. Amanda offers information on researched based interventions to give patients the appropriate coping skills needed in daily functioning. It has been an absolute joy learning from Amanda, and I know there is much more to go!
