Hello! I’m Amanda a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) otherwise known as a Licensed Therapist, or Licensed Psychotherapist. I am a relationship expert and Certified Anxiety Treatment Provider (CATP) and a Certified Grief & Loss Counseling Specialist (CGCS). I am a member of the American Academy of Experts for Traumatic Stress and Crisis Debriefing, American Counseling Association (ACA), Virginia Counseling Association (VCA), and American Psychological Association (APA). Furthermore, I am a Board Certified Clinical Supervisor with the Virginia Board of Counseling.
I enjoy helping individuals find their strengths, freedom and healing to have healthy relationships and live their best life, rather than who society says they should be.
I have served patients in the Virginia Beach and Chesapeake area for the past 11 years, and built my reputation on trust, professionalism, wise and pragmatic counsel.
I believe trust is built through genuine honesty and authenticity, and my counseling style is person-centered, non-judgmental, warm, engaging, conversational and collaborative. I work with you to pursue a course of action based on your unique personality and fundamental values.
I’m a life enthusiast, a motivator, an encourager by nature; not one to pass judgment, nor one to please. I enjoy walking alongside you and empowering you to make healthy decisions for themselves and supporting you in your decisions.
Life will most certainly involve ups and downs and, whether proactively approaching challenges or tackling them as they occur, I put forth my best effort to put you at ease while providing direction to empower you to withstand any of life’s challenges and transitions.
I work in collaboration with you utilizing a person centered and strengths based approach, to pursue a course of action based on your unique needs, personality, and fundamental values using cutting edge therapeutic interventions.
My Pledge is to
