I am a Licensed Professional Counselor with a direct approach using eclectic interventions, with a strong focus in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Mindfulness. For over 10 years I have had the privilege of working with a multitude of diverse individuals with many backgrounds. Reaching out for therapy is a big step, and I'm here to guide you through this process at the pace you're most comfortable with.
I will meet you where you are in life, regardless of what situation has brought you here. Together we can tackle any situations you're facing, whether it be general adjustment to life changes, just needing someone to lean on, to severe symptoms of anxiety and depression. I'm looking forward to getting to know you, and getting you another step closer to feeling better and more confident!
I offer services via text (live and asynchronous), phone, and video. Live sessions are booked in half hour increments by the BetterHelp system. If you don't see times available but you have a specific request, send me a message and I can see if I can make accommodations for you!
Additional areas of focus: Addictions, LGBT, Family conflicts, Grief, Parenting issues, Career difficulties, Depression, Compassion fatigue
Clinical approaches: Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Client-Centered Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Motivational Interviewing, Solution-Focused Therapy

Amanda has been a good resource to be able to bounce ideas and issues off to find better ways to react. She is a good listener and available as needed. My experience has been positive.

Amanda had been a life preserver for me. Within a month I could see a marked difference in my daily life and how I think about things. I can’t sing her praises enough. It took some time to get me matched but I genuinely believe it was because BetterHelp really cared about making sure I got the perfect match and I definitely did. My only regret is waiting so long to start. Thanks to my Morbid ladies for recommending BetterHelp!

Amanda is AMAZING! She always listens and provides guidance and direction that has helped me navigate the things I have struggled with for so long. In the short time I've been working with her, I cannot only see my changes, but more importantly I can feel them. My thinking has shifted and I find that I'm working to help myself instead of against myself. Words cannot express my gratitude.
