About Amanda

Navigating life’s unpredictable turns can take a toll on anyone’s mental health. Maybe you’re seeking understanding in a confusing time or hoping to be challenged and believed in. Whether you need some extra encouragement and a non-judgmental ear to listen or you feel completely lost and are searching for purpose, together we can accomplish your goals. I love helping people see other perspectives and possibilities they may have never considered. I believe everyone is capable of discovering and utilizing their inner strengths to get them to where they want to go. 

 

I have experience working with children, teens, and young adults in various mental health settings. I incorporate solution-focused and person-centered approaches as well as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) techniques to best fit each individual’s needs. Some of my specialties include depression, anxiety, stress management, and communication as well as setting healthy boundaries, increasing self-esteem and self-worth, finding purpose, and determining identity and values. I also enjoy working with parents to provide guidance in helping their children identify and appropriately express emotions.

 

Seeking help is the first step on the journey to healing and understanding. I would love to go on this journey with you or your child.
