Although it's only my 3rd week speaking to Amanda... I've never had anyone to talk to in this way. If I could advise anyone considering getting help with any problems they are experiencing then please just do it! Don't be embarrassed because people like Amanda dont judge... They just listen! Thank you.

Amanda is warm, kind, and very non-judgemental. She approaches situations logically, and openly, making frequent check-ins with the client to ensure they are on a desired path.

I would highly recommend Amanda as a counsellor! Great, great energy!

Amanda is empathetic and really cares about getting you to the right place of mind. Her advice and insights helped me make sense of my situation, enabling me to take a step back and give myself some time.

I've only had a few short exchanges of texts with Amanda, but in that time she's done a lot to help me. She's shared with me some techniques that have helped me re-evaluate my opinions of myself for the better.

Written by L.U. on Apr 24, 2020 after counseling with Amanda for 2 weeks on issues concerning family conflicts, and parenting issues

Amanda is a fantastic counselor. She assisted me straight away and was able to quickly listen and understand my needs and concerns. She followed up with me to ensure that I was ok. Happily recommend Amanda to anyone.

Amanda is helpful, thoughtful and supportive. She responds in a timely fashion and tells you what you need to hear in a non-judgmental way.

Written by S.U. on Mar 13, 2020 after counseling with Amanda for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, grief, and self esteem

Amanda has in a sense, reintroduced me to myself. Our first session was 3 weeks ago and I feel like I have known her my whole life. I was lost, overwhelmed, anxious, and just plain depressed. I didn't know how to handle life. Within the first session I felt better. She gave me tools, made me laugh, and gave me permission to be where I am today. She is teaching me to be easier on myself, find my happiness again, and just feel like me. Amanda is insightful, intuitive, and always hits the nail on the head for me. I cannot say enough good things about her. I have had a few therapists in my life but I have never connected to one the way I have with Amanda. She is just so easy to talk to in this comfortable, judgement-free zone. Thank you Amanda! Talk to you in our next session!!
