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!

I mean I have tried so many things & this is literally the only helpful professional I’ve ever had in the past decade+. I could not be more thankful, pleased, excited, grateful, & more for the opportunity to use this resource & it work perfectly for me, so that I can hopefully have it for as long as I need it! I could not praise or recommend it enough to anyone who needs even the slightest bit of help if they’re struggling b/c I was about at the end of options & my mind & personally, my therapist & then overall experience as well has been more than I could of dreamt of or asked for & I would recommend it & do it a million times over & hope to be here for a long time, so that I can say I put the work in & I’m ridiculously grateful of the help I receive. Idk if everyone gets as “lucky” w/ their therapist, but it’s basically as much as the price of a “therapist” w/ my insurance & this is SO MUCH BETTER, helpful, & conducive to literally bettering my mental health than anything I’ve tried or been given in the past decade or two.

Work with me!
