'I've learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.' - Maya Angelou
Hi! My name is Amanda and I am a licensed clinical professional counselor practicing for over fifteen years. I earned my Master of Arts degree in Counseling Psychology from Lewis University. Recently I earned credentials as a Certified Compassion Fatigue Professional and a Certified Clinical Anxiety Treatment Professional. My experience lies in working with individuals during life transitions, career counseling, anxiety, stress, relationships, self-esteem and depression.
I enjoy creating a strong relationship and supportive environment where individuals are respected and free to speak their minds without judgement. Employing an eclectic approach (treating every person as an individual and understanding that counseling is NOT a one size fits all) I will work with YOU to help you meet YOUR goals. Taking that first step to make changes in your life is scary. I am here to partner with you and hear you as you navigate upon your journey.

Amanda has changed my life. The past year and a half has been incredibly difficult for me, and I know I would not have been able to cope if it weren't for her help. I was terrified to try therapy, but working with her has been the best decision I've ever made.
