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.

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! :)
