There are all different types of transitions in life. Some are small and others are permanent changes in the structure of our reality, but all can cause intense feelings of stress and anxiety. These feelings can greatly impact our relationships, interfere with our work, and compromise our ability to fulfill daily responsibilities.
Amanda has experience working with individuals, couples, and families encountering difficulties through life transitions. She utilizes her training and expertise to provide tools that can assist you through stressful times. Amanda believes in the importance of establishing trust through the therapeutic relationship and working collaboratively with you and at your pace.
"It's about the choice to show up and be real. The choice to be honest. The choice to let our true selves be seen.”
Vulnerability is scary, difficult, and one of the bravest places we can be. It is in vulnerability that we truly experience parts of our self that we have closed off because of fear, anxiety, sadness, or grief. Avoidance is our biggest enemy in the process of healing and feeling whole. Through an eclectic approach, Amanda utilizes different modalities of treatment all centered around creating a safe environment for vulnerability, while allowing you to set the pace and feel seen as well as heard.
