She really cares. She follows up and offers me repeated opportunities to contact her whenever I feel I need to. She's been more help than she probably knows.

Amanda is very insightful. She listens and asks difficult questions requiring deep inflection. She is very empathetic and wants her patients to really understand what is going on internally.

Great person to talk to. Very down to earth and real. Feels like your talking to someone who cares and is truly listening. This is my first experience with therapy and after only one session with Amanda I could see myself keeping up with it!
