About me

Amanda is passionate about treating the “whole person” by addressing mind, body and spiritual influences. Treating a person’s concerns holistically is important to her as she believe in the mind-body connection and that one effects the other. Specializing in trauma and abuse issues, she uses Trauma Focused Cognitive Behavioral approaches to confront toxic belief systems that hold you back from living the life you desire. Amanda has specific training in working with children and adolescents and incorporates Expressive Arts and Play Therapy techniques to better speak their language in a non-confrontational way. Amanda has strong beliefs that keeping caretakers involved and informed throughout the treatment process with children is critical as attachment and relationships are a key component in the healing process. When working with couples, Amanda addresses concerns through the lens of Emotionally Focused Therapy. She is skilled in approaching interpersonal issues within families and couples helping to foster the creation of secure bonds and re-organized emotional responses.
