Treatment Approach

  • Finds merit in multiple, different modalities that she’s studied and utilized over the years:

    • Positive Psychology

    • Mindfulness-Based

    • Attachment-Based

Amanda’s training and work experience as a sexuality educator, postpartum doula, and social worker also informs her approach:

  • Our environments, personal histories, and level of privilege (or lack thereof) strongly influence our experience of the world

Amanda continually pursues opportunities for personal, educational, and professional-growth and values her profession’s commitment to clinical improvement (clinical skills, client outcomes) via continuing education.

Integrative Approach

Amanda firmly believes in the symbiotic relationship of the mind and body and intentionally works with all clients to help them better attune to this connection and identify tools that not only help them feel better, but hopefully thrive. Her integrative approach involves:

  • Education & Empowerment

  • Lifestyle Modifications

  • Coordination of Care

In order to expand upon her integrative approach to psychotherapy, Amanda is currently pursuing a Functional Medicine Health Coaching program and plans to start offering health coaching (ideal for people with chronic health issues) as a separate service towards the end of 2019.
