I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in Tennessee and Illinois. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, parenting problems, ADHD. I also helped many people who have experienced trauma and abuse.
My therapy style is warm and interactive. I believe in meeting my clients where they are in their situation and treating them with respect, sensitivity, and compassion, and I don't believe in stigmatizing labels. My approach is cognitive-behavioral and solution focused. I will tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs.
It takes courage to seek a more fulfilling and happier life and to take the first steps towards change. If you are ready to take that step, I am here to support and empower you.
I look forward to working with you!

Probably the best therapist I've ever had. She is very patient and she is very caring. When the session is almost over, she let's me know that it's getting close and we use that time to discuss what we can talk about on our next session. If I could give her a higher star rating, I would. Amanda is the absolute best!
