About me

Hi, I am a licensed therapist in Utah, Oregon, and New Mexico. I have over 15 years of experience, and I LOVE being a therapist! It's amazing to be a part of others changing and improving their lives.

Of course I work with a wide range of clients – depression, anxiety, addiction, and grief/loss are primary emphases. I also have extensive experience with relationship issues and parenting problems.

I focus on person-centered therapy – using unconditional positive regard, emotional support, and a variety of specialized therapeutic techniques.

I want to give you a place where you feel safe and understood, so we can focus on setting goals, improving, and healing.

I provide live CHAT sessions only - if you are looking for phone/video sessions, I am not the therapist for you. You can also send me messages as often as you want! I have session availability on Wednesdays and occasionally on Fridays.

If it seems like we'd be a good fit, send me a message and we can get started right away!

Wanted my drivers license for some reason and didn’t feel comfortable giving it

Amanda is very personable and always knows the point I am trying to get across. She has been a great help and I am so appreciative of our sessions!

This has been my third week meeting with Amanda, and she is great. She helped me narrow down the cause of my initial concerns and desires to meet with a therapist, and we are working on understanding the cycle of anxiety, what it looks like in my life, and ways to overcome my anxiety. She is very thoughtful and kind, and I definitely recommend her to those looking to try therapy for the first time like me.

She is by far the best I've had ever. She challenges my thinking which is exactly what I need.
