Amanda is fantastic. She’s very skilled in getting to the heart of issues and giving really valuable insights and homework. She’s super friendly and personable and easy to talk to. Right from our first session she put me at ease and was easy to open up to and always asks thoughtful questions as part of the session. I’d definitely recommend her!

She helps me feel validated when I need it, and pushes me to learn how to function without the need for validation from others.

Amanda has been instrumental in identifying some of the issues that have held me back for many years. She is patient, kind and adaptable in her approach. She is also very knowledgeable in many types of treatments for varying mental health issues. I would highly recommend Amanda to anyone considering therapy.
