My name is Amanda. If you need someone to talk to I am a good listener. I am passionate about helping people succeed in reaching their personal goals and maintain a healthy lifestyle. I don’t believe in “cookie cutter” approaches to therapy. I feel that every individuals needs are different, and therefore every therapy approach should reflect that. I enjoy helping people gain insight and develop new perspectives. I maintain Christian values and incorporate those values into my work with patients. My practice focuses on the treatment of Depression, Anxiety, Obsessive Compulsive Disorder and Traumatic Stress/Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. I am currently accepting new patients and work with adolescents and adults of all ages. Together we can find a solution that works.
