I am a licensed clinical social worker who graduated from the University of Denver in 2007. Since graduating I have worked in a variety of settings with a wide range of clients from children to adults. I have helped people with numerous issues including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, parenting problems, career challenges, and anxiety. I have special training in counseling those who have been through traumatic experiences both in school and in trainings since.
My counseling style is warm and interactive. I believe in treating everyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion, and I don't believe in stigmatizing labels. My approach combines cognitive-behavioral, psychodynamic and client centered techniques. More importantly, I believe in therapy being a collaborative process and I will work with you to provide the help that you need. My goal is to make this the most useful space for you as possible.
I have always believed that it is the strong who seek to change and I look forward to supporting you through this process!

Amanda listens with care and finds the critical nugget in each conversation that I hadn't seen for myself. She offers insights with gentle forthrightness and poses what seem like simple questions but are gateways to some profound discoveries. Over and over I feel that she is reminding me of things I already know but have lost track of. I especially appreciate her sense of humor. It's good to feel lighter at the end of our consults!
