Amanda Scott, LMSW
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.

Mandy was very helpful and gave me the tools to effectively cope with a stressful family situation. She provided me with tools to positively change my thinking into more optimistic and realistic perspectives.

I appreciate Amanda so much. She really understands who I am as a person and I feel like that makes such a difference in our sessions. I really appreciate her. I don’t know how I would get through this without her right now.
