About Me

Welcome! I am Amanda, a licensed therapist, more specifically a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW). My bachelors degree is in Child Development with an emphasis in social work from HSU, and my Masters degree from USC is in Social Work with an emphasis in Children and Families. I’ve spend the last 13 years as a social worker counseling for depression, anxiety, grief and loss as well as more general life stressors such as diagnosis of a disease or major medical conditions, life changes such as moving, graduating from school, job loss or divorce. I have experience as a Medical Social Worker, in both inpatient and outpatient hospital settings. I have worked in hospice, home health, child welfare, foster care and working with foster parents.

I believe you are the expert in your life, I believe in building a safe place to share fears, struggles, stressors and achievements. My work is strength-based, validating, and collaborative; meaning we will work together to achieve your goals and I will cheer you on towards success. I look forward to meeting you, and am honored to be chosen to be a part of your journey!

Amanda is a kind and thoughtful counselor. She’s helped guide me through the most difficult part of my life thus far, and I don’t know if I could have done it without her. I’m eternally grateful for her care.
