I am a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist working out of Miami, Florida. I have experience working in outpatient and community mental health settings helping clients with family conflict, parenting, teen issues, and relationship issues. I also have experience and training in working LGBTQ clients and the specific issues they may face.
I graduated from the University of Miami in 2017 with my masters degree, and have continued to seek out continuing education and training to better help serve my clients. I have my certifications in several evidence-based practices related to trauma, family work, substance abuse and HIV prevention. I am currently in process of obtaining my certification for Gottman's couples therapy.
When working with clients, I tend to focus on a person-centered and systems-based approach. This means that I like to meet my clients where they are and help support them as they work through their self-discovery and self-actualization. I believe that all people have the ability to grow and change, and I hope to provide a safe, judgement-free and nurturing environment to allow this to happen. By thinking systemically, I also help my clients consider how their own individual change process can influence and be influenced by the relationships in their lives. I also utilize Cognitive-Behavioral and solution-focused techniques in the therapeutic relationship to provide my clients with the skills and tools they need to help them on their journey towards self-improvement.

Amanda has been great at being flexible with my therapeutic needs but has also been able to focus our treatment goals so that we are actively working on something.
Amanda has been wonderful! I feel that she cares about my issues and genuinely wants to help me get passed them. She asks all the right questions to get to the root of my issues. She provides insightful feedback that provokes thoughtfulness and introspection. I would definitely recommend her to anyone in search of counseling.
