I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in the state of Kansas with 5 years of experience practicing therapy. Prior to becoming a therapist, I was a Licensed Bachelor of Social Work, where I spent most of my 10 years working in Early Childhood Development.
I have experience in helping clients with stress and anxiety, relationship issues, trauma and abuse, & motivation, self esteem, and confidence. I believe that you are the expert of your story and have many strengths that will assist you with reaching your goals. It takes courage to seek out the life you want and to take the first steps towards a change. I am here for support along your journey of empowerment.
In addition to practicing onling therapy, I practice Equine-facilitated Psychotherapy. I am passionate about the horse and human connection and its capacity for healing. I believe in the incorporation of the whole body in treatment. In our work together, gaining self-awareness will go beyond our thoughts and feelings and encourage exploration of our body's physical response to life experiences. As your self-awareness grows, your ability to change grows.
I practice Trauma-Informed Care. I appreciate opportunities to educate others on how traumatic experiences impact our brains. It helps make sense of the why behind what we do and gives us the insight we need to move forward. It respects and honors the impact experiences have on brain functioning and highlights the human capacity for resilience. It creates an opportunity to re-wire our brain for healthier functioning, opening the door for endless possibilities.
I approach the therapist-client relationship as a partnership and therapy as a journey. If you think my support may benefit your journey, please reach out!
Additional areas of focus: Abandonment, Attachment Issues, Caregiver Issues and Stress, Communication Problems, Isolation / Loneliness, Panic Disorder and Panic Attacks, Post-traumatic Stress, Self-Love, Women's Issues

Mandy has changed my entire thought process and outlook on life! Because of her I believe therapy is the best life choice I’ve ever made
Written on Oct 10, 2023 after therapy with Amanda "Mandy" for 1 month on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, and self esteem
She makes it feel as if you’re talking to a friend and makes you feel comfortable enough to let all of your worries and doubt out. I don’t know if I would be able to navigate through my current issues without her.
