Warm, inviting. Very open about her process and wants your input in the therapy plan just as much as hers.

Amanda was incredibly kind and understanding during my first visit. I felt understood and comfortable speaking to her andalso felt like I learned how to improve myself in the hour that we spent together. I'm looking forward to growing more in our coming sessions. I would recommend Amanda to anyone looking to understand and better their mental health.
