Hi I am Amanda, I like being a part of helping people find hope, joy, overcoming obstacles and building resilience.
I enjoy working with children and adolescents. Using play-therapy I have witnessed clients communicate what they do not have the words to say. As a therapist, I help guide and provide clients the tools to label feelings, find their voice and make sense of their world.
During counseling you can expect me to offer a warm heart and trusting smile, hold space for clients to explore in a safe and non-judgmental way, while encouraging them to take steps in their therapeutic process.
I am a true Texan! I was born in Houston and I live in Plano with my husband, our outgoing and cheerful (8yr) old daughter and her younger (3yr) twin brothers. We have a retriever, ragdoll cat, chinchilla and beta fish. When I am not driving around town to practices or games, I enjoy spending time with friends, reading, cooking, playing a round of golf, spending time at the lake, deep sea fishing, skiing, working out, football games, and a good romantic comedy.
