Message from Therapist

Hello! My name is Amanda and I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist in the state of Florida meeting with clients virtually all across the state and in-person at my office location in the greater Tampa Bay area. I also provide therapy services to individuals and families temporarily living outside of the USA (such as missionaries or temporary relocations) where the licensing board permits. I have been working in the counseling field for over 12 years and truly love the work.

I specialize in relationships- dating and married couples, parent to child relationships, foster family relationships, colleague relationships, friendships, etc.

You can expect me to advocate for your best self and your best relationship through thorough assessment, evidence-based approaches, educating about the science behind the symptoms, and through collaborative work. I work with my clients actively to develop new approaches, patterns, and skills.

Contact me by phone or email for a free 20 minute consultation to see how we can get started.

Practice Info

I received my MA in Marriage and Family Therapy from the University of Central Florida and received my BA from Florida State University where I dual majored in Family & Child Sciences and Sociology.

I have worked in the mental health field for over 12 years with clients from ages 2-85, in various settings such as high school and college campuses, inpatient and outpatient substance abuse treatment facilities, and in a Specialized Therapeutic Foster Care Program.

I have specialized training in:
*Trauma- working with individuals, couples, and families
*Foster care
*Couples therapy (including Level 1 training in Gottman Method Couples Therapy)

I am dedicated to helping motivated clients make real, tangible, and satisfying changes in their lives and relationships.
Hours of Operation
Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday mornings and evenings.

*I also offer what I call “post baby bedtime” night sessions for parents who cannot attend a session in typical business hours. Those are offered on Tuesday and Thursday nights - between 8-10pm EST (based on availability). I offer this because I have been there and it’s important to me as a provider to help in this way.
