Amanda has such a great way of getting me to see things in a more positive light. She’s so easy to talk to and understanding of my feelings. I appreciate what she’s done for my mental health more than she’ll ever know

Amanda Specht has personally used Cognitive Behavioral Therapy to help me navigate through one of the toughest times in my life. Through understanding, empathy and communication Amanda has helped me develop awareness towards my own skills and abilities. This is allowing me to have the confidence and courage to work through my past and current situations and allows me to make better decisions for the future. I love the convenience of better help and the choice to pick video or calling for sessions. I can communicate with Amanda through the week. I am so grateful to have met Amanda and thankful for better help.
