About me

I am licensed in Pennsylvania with 3 years of professional work experience. I have experience in helping clients with stress and anxiety, trauma and abuse, coping with grief and loss, & depression. Specifically, I am trained in Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing therapy (EMDR) & Internal Family Systems (IFS), which are two evidence based treatment modalities that are shown to be beneficial with individuals who have experienced trauma. I believe that you are the expert of your story and that you have many strengths that will assist you in overcoming things that challenge you. Taking the first step to seeking a more fulfilling and happier life takes courage. I am here to support you in that process.

These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Amanda Irwin. We don't pay anyone to provide their review and they are all made voluntarily. Some people's experience receiving therapy with BetterHelp might be different.

It’s been a tough process for me to even begin therapy but Amanda has eased my nerves and I’m only 2 sessions in and she is getting to know and understand me more. I look forward to progressing forward with Amanda in therapy!
