Additionally, Amanda has more than ten years prior experience in the community mental health system supporting clients and their identified support people in overcoming behavioral hardships, navigating relationships within foster/adoption families, exploring communication concerns, difficult life transitions, and problematic family patterns/relational issues.
In her free time, Amanda enjoys attending local festivals, spending time with her family, reading, and vacationing at the beach (her happy place).
Amanda looks forward to walking alongside you on your journey to becoming your most authentic and confident self.
