Welcome! I am so glad you have found yourself here and I'm excited to connect with you. I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in the state of Texas and have been counseling since 2014. I earned my Bachelor's Degree in Psychology with a Minor in Women and Gender Studies from Texas A&M University. I completed my Master's Degree in Clinical Mental Health and School Counseling from the University of North Texas. I've had the joy of experiencing counseling in multiple settings including schools, private practice, and nonprofit organizations. I have developed a nonprofit organization that supports children facing medical challenges along with their families. The goal is and has always been the same- helping people find their best selves and allowing space and time for healing. I have worked with children of all ages, teenagers, adults, couples, and families. I value the relationships we create together!
I believe that the relationship developed between the counselor and client sets the foundation to reach a place of growth and healing. By providing clients with a safe, caring, and accepting environment I'm able to encourage clients to share their experiences through different techniques and approaches. I believe in working together with my clients to overcome difficulties and instill hope for the future. Counseling is a journey, and what I love most about being a counselor is being able to meet you where you are on this journey as you tap into your strengths and believe in who you are meant to be. As a professional counselor my goal is to show you that I am here to empathize with you, encourage you, and help you get "unstuck" in the midst of what you're experiencing. I am excited to connect with you and serve you as we dive into your beliefs and potential!

I’ve had a good experience with Amanda although it’s been difficult to get an in person session with her
Amanda has been very helpful and understanding. I feel like I can talk to her and she addresses all of my concerns and is very professional and friendly.
Amanda has been very patient with me and my personal issues. She’s very understanding and offers a safe space to share my thoughts. She also good at providing different questionnaires and exercises to help with uncovering anxiety roots. Overall, very happy with her and our therapy sessions.
I typically never liked therapy. But Amanda is great. She knows exactly what to say and how to say it. She gives me the right amount of space but when I need someone to talk to she’s there for me.
Amanda is amazing! In a short time she has already made me feel comfortable with sharing things and being open with my concerns. Whenever I feel like I need to talk to someone she has already become the first person I think of, and I take comfort knowing that I can have any type of conversation with, without judgement, and with helpful advice and new strategies.
For the first time, I have hope that I can be happy and that I'll have a future to look forward to, and that's thanks to Amanda!
