Message from Amanda

Sometimes the idea of talking with someone new about ourselves or sharing our personal issues can feel like a nerve-wracking process. But therapy is about taking it one session at a time and acknowledging when we take small steps towards our goals. A little information about me is that I have worked with those who have everyday anxiety, general life challenges and worries, to those who have been through trauma, have persistent mental health disorders, as well as addiction and substance use. With those I work with I believe it's important to understand how our thoughts, feelings, and behaviors interact with each other as well as what we can do to self regulate and cope with them. Additionally, I want to recognize and promote a client’s resiliency and ability to withstand the challenges they are facing. With this said, I still tailor my approach to fit your needs and provide you the best care. Things like self-nurturing, boundary setting, distress tolerance and empathetic listening are my go-to in sessions. I hope in our work together you will be able to know yourself better and navigate life’s difficulties. If you experience anxiety, depression, relationship issues, or any obstacles that you feel you might have, please feel free to get in touch. I hope to connect with you soon! I'm currently in-network with Aetna, Anthem, BCBS, Empire BCBS, United, Cigna, Optum, Evernorth, and UMR.

Get to Know Amanda

How should I prepare for my first session with you?

When meeting for the first time, the first session will likely involve getting to know each other on a better level . This is so I have a good understanding of who the person I am working with is and vice versa. In trying to provide a space where someone feels safe to talk to me, I make sure clients feel heard in what they are saying and remain open-minded to the obstacles they are facing.

If I have never been to therapy before, what should I expect? How do I know if I should go, and how do I start?

First, therapy can look different to each person depending on what their needs and issues are so there is no “one size fits all”. With this said, in therapy we will discuss goals related to the problems the client is facing and how we can meet these over time. Therapy is also flexible, so our plan of approach can change and be adjusted to best help each person. Finally, therapy is not exclusive to certain individuals, it is for everyone. If you are wondering if you should start therapy, an easy way to navigate this process is taking the first step and connecting with someone.

What is the best part of the work for you?

The best part of this work is helping others recognize the human parts of us. It can be challenging to open up to someone new and feeling emotions in front of them. Achieving this with clients makes this profession fulfilling and leads me to continue connecting with others

What led you to become a mental healthcare practitioner?

Mental health in general can impact every single individual and all parts of our daily lives. Personally, I have seen how getting support from a therapist has beneficially helped me and other people in my life. For me, I would also like to be able to help others in this way in order to find their best self.
