About me

Hello and congratulations on your first step to feeling better! My name is Mandy, and I am a Licensed Clinical Social worker in the state of Michigan with 25 plus years of diverse experience. Nine of those years was spent as an active-duty military social worker with the United States Navy including 6 months in a combat zone.
I am experienced in working with military service members, their families, and veterans. I’ve also spent 15 plus years working in hospital settings, providing counseling around adjustment to illness, and supporting those who are undergoing very arduous situations.
Other areas of focus include the challenges that come along with aging as well as the benefits of, and impact of nutrition.
I am supportive, empathetic, and passionate about helping others. My therapy style embraces a combination of methods including cognitive behavioral therapy, solution focused therapy and a psychoanalytic therapy. However, some individuals may benefit from a more practical, coaching type approach where there is less emphasis on psychodynamic exploration and more emphasis on making concrete changes to lifestyle. No matter where you are in life, I look forward to working with you to help restore peace, joy, and quality of life.

I have tried online therapy before through a different company and it was all around a really bad experience. The therapist wasn’t all that great. So I started out with BetterHelp a little skeptical. But Amanda is great. She’s an amazing listener and has been able to really give some amazing feedback and really help me work through my stuff. She’s incredible. I’d recommend her to anyone I could.

Amanda is extremely attentive and always responds quickly. Her responses are also very in-depth. I wish I would have started working with her years ago.

I was able to connect with Amanda (Mandy) right from the start. She was sensitive and compassionate to my situation. She provided helpful suggestions and valuable points for me to consider. I'm in a better place now, but will reconnect with Mandy in a heartbeat if needed.

Written on Jan 02, 2022 after therapy with Amanda for 1 month on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, grief, eating disorders, self esteem, and coping with life changes

Amanda is everything I have been looking for in a therapist. I stopped working with my previous therapist as I didn't feel we were a good match, so I was very nervous about how things would work out with Amanda. I couldn't be happier. She's extremely empathetic, and she listens and makes sure she really understands my issues. I feel heard, and I am impressed with how thorough she is. I highly recommend her.

Work with me!
