Amanda Russo


About Me

I'm a licensed professional counselor in the state of Texas. I have worked primarily with adolescents and families over the past decade, but I have also worked with adults and couples. I have the most experience in depression, anxiety, ADHD, and Autism Spectrum Disorders, but I am comfortable with many other issues as well. I am also a certified school counselor and special education teacher and have a background in applied behavior analysis.

My therapeutic style is to really determine what a client needs to feel most successful by equipping them with tools they can use in their everyday lives. I'm very cognitive-behavioral and solution based in my theoretical orientation. I want to get my clients back on track, and work myself out of a job.

I look forward to working with you!

I have really enjoyed therapy with Amanda. The way she makes you deeply analyze a concept and helps you understand the root of the problem rather than just focusing the surface it’s amazing. She’s straightforward and you can have a conversation with her. It’s great!

I look forward to talking with Amanda. After only two calls, I feel more confident in the process to better myself and she does not make me feel judged. It’s a safe zone and am looking forward to working On more with her! She’s very responsive and always has great solutions right when I feel like they’re needed. I would highly recommend her to anyone struggling with boundaries, or possible family/emotional issues.

Amanda is phenomenal. She has been a huge help to me and my mindset and helped me mentally organize my life and thoughts. This has helped me feel more productive, happy and encouraged when the seas have been rough. I would highly recommend Better Help to anyone struggling, and specifically Amanda for her expertise and warm candor. I can't thank this service and her enough for helping me.
