I am a clinical social worker licensed in Missouri with over 20 years of experience working as a therapist, providing services focused on relationship issues and couples counseling ranging from communication issues to individual concerns such as depression and anxiety, substance use disorders, post-traumatic stress disorder, relationship concerns, parenting and child issues, career challenges, transition and change, resiliency, stress management, sleep hygiene, and health problems that are creating tension within the relationship.
I have been successful in developing therapeutic relationships with people from a wide range of backgrounds, using culturally competent counseling techniques. I use a variety of evidence-based therapeutic approaches tailored to meet your unique needs, including cognitive behavior therapy, exposure therapies, and motivational interviewing.
It takes courage to seek a happier, healthier relationship and more fulfilled version of yourself. If you are ready to take that first step towards change, I am here to support and empower you.
I look forward to working with you!

First time going through therapy and I wasn't sure what to expect but Amanda has been so far very friendly and easy to open up about very hard personal topics. I am getting a lot out of each session and I plan on continuing with her for the foreseeable future.
I love how amanda is very opened & is direct when communicating. I feel like she helps you set realistic goals to accomplish for you and your relationship without too much pressure.
