There is nothing more intimate and important than choosing a person to share your inner thoughts, feelings, and aspirations. I believe wholeheartedly that it's a gift for one to allow me to be a part of their lives. I will not take you for granted should you choose me as your therapist.
My name is Amanda Hopkins, L CSW-C, and I have over 17 years of experience as a Social Worker. I began my career as a Social Worker in the Department of Social Services in the Foster Care/Adoptions unit. I have assisted with reunification between mothers and their children and have been instrumental in walking biological mothers through the adoption process. After recognizing my passion in listening, processing, and helping people with their inner fears, depression, and anxiety, I became a therapist. I appreciated my years as a School-based therapist because of the diversity, helping teenagers with their emotional health, and promoting the importance of self-worth to young ladies. I facilitated family sessions and couples intervention for those who needed the tools for communication, managing grief, processing loss, infidelity, and blended family conflicts. My therapeutic methods utilized in sessions are client-centered, solution-focused, and trauma-focused. Please know that I have an active relationship with and for Christ; therefore, I am willing and able to provide Christian counseling.

Amanda is amazing. She’s come into my life at the time I needed her most!!
Amanda has truly helped me move through a difficult time. I often feel like we would sit and speak with each other for longer than an hour if we could. She has been helping me put things into realistic focus, reminds me that I’m doing okay, and she always takes time to respond to me thoughtfully - without just telling me what I “want” to hear. I’m very happy to have been paired with Amanda and I look forward to continuing to work with her!
My therapist, Amanda has been such a great help in this time in my life. She is so supportive, encouraging and understanding. I love talking with her and I immediately feel better after each session. She is a life saver!
