Amanda completed her Masters in Marriage and Family Therapy at Hope International University, and is in the process of finishing a second Masters in Theology.
"When working with clients I go where you need to!"
Amanda's priority is that sessions create a safe place to process trauma. This includes an environment where you can show up as yourself, and say anything you need to.
"My passion is to help people heal in their trauma, while also creating a greater connection in their spiritual walk. I specialize in couples, families, individuals and treating trauma which can include EMDR. I bring my trained, furry companion, Alita, to sessions with Client's permission as an emotional support dog."
Amanda is completing her Masters in Theology in order to expand her existing expertise in Christian counseling and treating religious trauma. Faith integration is an optional service with Amanda, and is included based on Client comfort level.
Christian based faith integration is offered in individual sessions, and Amanda also offers Christian based therapy groups and courses through Bonding!
Check out our services tab for groups, workshops and courses that are open for enrollment.
"I want to see people believe that they matter and they have a powerful purpose on this earth. Healthy mind and spirit does take a lot of work, but it is more than possible when you believe in you!”
Amanda provides treatment to individual adolescents and adults, couples/marriage counseling and group therapy.
Animal assisted therapy can be provided through Amanda's companionship with Alita. Alita is a fully certified therapy dog through the Alliance of Therapy Dogs.
