Hi! I'm Amanda and I'm a Licensed Professional Counselor with 10 years of experience working with people from various backgrounds and lifestyles. Settings that I've worked in include client's homes, community facilities, schools, prisons, and hospitals. It is my goal to assist my clients with improving and maintaining the quality of life that they deserve by working on healing personal, family, interpersonal, and community challenges. It is my belief that each individual is special with a story, characteristics, and strengths that are unique to them.

What can clients expect to take away from sessions with you?

Clients can expect a better understanding of their emotions and mental processes. It is my goal that clients develop improved emotional and mental stability, sense of self, interpersonal relationships, way of relating to the world, and the confidence to meet their personal goals.

Explain to clients what areas you feel are your biggest strengths.

Depression, Mood Disorders, Abuse, Sexual abuse, Bullying, Anger Management, Anxiety, Bipolar Disorder, Grief, Loss, Eating Disorders and Trauma

My treatment methods

Cognitive Behavioral (CBT)

I've used CBT to help clients develop healthier, more positive ways of thinking about themselves, others, the world, and their situation. We all have cognitive distortions that were developed through our experiences, media, culture, and our upbringing. Identifying, challenging and changing these distortions and core beliefs help improve self-esteem, self-image, develop optimism, and improved wellbeing overall.

Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT)

Emotions are present within us for a reason. Your emotions are important, valid, and often point to what's going right in your life as well as what is challenging. Through EFT, you will learn to identify emotions, explain them in detail, pinpoint the causes of your emotions, how emotions are linked to mood and behavior, how to regulate them.

Compassion Focused

Compassion for self is just as important as having compassion for others. CF helps teach clients what self-compassion is, ways in which you can show yourself more compassion, and how to replace the inner critic with compassionate, more encouraging inner voice. Practicing self compassion helps improve well-being, regulate emotions, reduce depression, anxiety, and other difficult emotions.

Strength-Based

Everyone has strengths, even if you are unaware of them. Identifying and using your strengths as often as possible improves sense of self, purpose, satisfaction in relationships and life overall.

Trauma Informed Care

Trauma can include all forms of abuse (mental, emotional, verbal, physical, financial, sexual, spiritual, relational), bullying, assault, violence, war, loss of a loved one, or natural disasters to name a few. Trauma often changes the structure of the brain and makes functioning harder. Focusing on processing, healing and coming to terms with trauma is key to feeling better and improving functioning.
