Amanda is a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist. Her ideal client is someone (individual, couple, or family) who is willing to be vulnerable or open to the idea of working towards that. Someone who is willing to work together.
Her focus is to work alongside you to support you in reaching your goals. She does not believe in cookie cutter therapy techniques, but believe it is her job to figure out what works best for each client. Some techniques that she uses are CBT, experiential, TFCBT, solution focused, play therapy, strength based, and genograms (family tree). As a marriage and family therapist, she also think it’s important to discuss relationships in a client’s life.
Clients can expect that Amanda focuses not just on the concern that brought them to therapy but their strengths/hobbies as well. Clients can expect conversation and humor during therapy sessions. The therapy process will be whatever works best of each client with focus on building the therapeutic relationship. Clients can expect that she works towards building a safe place for the client.
When Amanda is not at work, she enjoys watching movies, spending time with family/friends, reading books, baking/cooking, and traveling.
