Written by A.L. on Oct 25, 2021 after therapy with Amanda for 3 months on issues concerning stress, anxiety, trauma and abuse, grief, and coping with life changes

Amanda is not only kind and attentive to my needs but she offers real life solutions to how I can tackle the obstacles in front of me. She is always bringing me a new perspective that I sometimes can’t see when I’m grieving. She has been a tremendous help to me and I’ve already referred a friend who I think would benefit from Amanda’s expertise.

Amanda has helped me understand and see new angles and perspectives I haven't been able to access on my own. I feel and sense she truly cares about my progress and achieving the goals I set for myself.

Amanda is a wonderful counselor. She respects me and allows me to make choices regarding my therapy. This is the first therapist that I feel I’ve been able to open up with.
