I am a licensed clinical social work who has worked in many different settings, including residential, in-home, a school setting, and, most recently, private practice. I became familiar with virtual counseling due to covid and recognized the many benefits of using technology to provide quality care. Reaching out for support can uncomfortable, but I am here to provide respectful and unbiased support with compassion as you navigate life's challenges. We will work together to identify your hangups and goals and I will provide perspective and practical skills to help you overcome those challenges and to make the best of your circumstance. I use evidence-based techniques, such as cognitive behavioral therapy, dialectical behavioral therapy, and motivational interviewing, to help my clients begin to make progress promptly and effectively work toward their goals. I have worked with people from a wide variety of backgrounds. Much of my experience has been working with people experiencing depression, anxiety, stress, major life change, and the aftermath of traumatic events.
I look forward to hearing from and helping you!

Amanda has been incredibly helpful in helping me cope with life changes.
Amanda has been a great support to lean on. I thought I would only use this app for a short period of time, but I’m seriously considering becoming a regular client.
Amanda was very good in listening to me and offering suggestions and additional perspective to help me process and cope with the difficult circumstances I'm facing.
For many years those closest to me would ask me to go to counseling. Even ignored my best friend who is a psychologist. However a recent event made me realize I needed to do something. Working with Amanda was a smooth transition into getting help with how my mind is working. She makes me regret not getting help from someone like her years ago.
Amanda is a Very good listener and an even better advisor. She’s responsive and friendly in her approach!
I've had one session with Amanda but she was very understanding and encouraging and I look forward to future sesssions.
Amanda has been extremely helpful in the short week I’ve worked with her. I had severe anxiety and having the ability to message her when I was struggling through it was needed more than I knew. I hope I can work with her again soon as I go through this journey with Better Help
Amanda has been a great influence on me in the short time that I have known her. She has been my first counselor and I am very grateful for her knowledge and her expertise in the field. She has a great way of opening my eyes to new experiences I could not see before.
