Throughout our lives, we are faced with many challenges and counseling can help provide the tools needed to overcome these life obstacles in a healthy way. It is vitally important to the therapeutic process to find a therapist with whom you feel comfortable and trust. I hope to be this person for you. I believe that therapy is a collaboration and together we can focus on issues that may be negatively impacting your healthy development such as adjustment to disability, depression & anxiety, attention difficulties & learning issues, bullying of children, self-injurious behavior, anger management, poor self-esteem, parent/child conflicts, and grief and loss. Counseling is different for every person and I work to tailor my treatment specifically to your needs and personality in order to help you in best possible way.
I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist with years of experience working with people to enhance their lives through developing new skills and tools to tackle life's challenges. I look forward to working with you! I have practiced Individual, Group, and Family Therapy in several settings including: Traditional Practice, Brain Injury Rehabilitation, Schools, Group homes, and Alternative to Incarceration Programs.
I attended the University of San Diego and majored in Psychology and minored Sociology. I continued my education at the University of San Diego and received my Master's degree in Marriage and Family Therapy.

Really enjoying it so far.
Amanda has been great! We are still in the middle of counseling but so far she has been enthusiastic, supportive, and helpful. Highly recommend.
Amanda is really nice and understanding. I really like Amanda.
Amanda saved the day during an incredibly stressful period in my life. I felt like she truly listened to my concerns and offered the support I needed to carry forward.
Amanda has been great in helping me get better as a person. I am married with two children and I am here because of them. Amanda has been helpful in me understanding a lot about my wife, myself, my marriage, and I couldn’t be more grateful than I am right for BetterHelp connecting to her.
She “talks” like a real human with her words or messages. Not super black and white and very professional, which is what I wanted. It’s more like chatting with a girlfriend while getting into some deeper issues. She’s great!
Amanda changed the way that I approach difficult situations and moments. Thank you for your expertise and the thought-provoking questions! I feel like I’m growing and healing because of our interactions.
Amanda is very caring and helps to provide you with step-by-step solutions and practical advice.
Amanda has made it a point to accommodate me throughout the week with options on how to communicate. I've built a bond with her and I don't feel so alone anymore.
She's an A+ for me!
I appreciate her already, she’s helped me through a rough couple of weeks. If I hadn’t had her to talk to, I would have really been miserable.
Amanda has helped me a lot through issues in my relationship. She listened to all of my concerns and answered all of my questions in a friendly and professional manner! I couldn't have asked for a better experience! :)
