Amanda completed her Ph.D. in clinical psychology at Bowling Green State University in Ohio in 2012. She worked in university counseling for several years before transitioning to private practice in 2015. Amanda’s primary area of interest is working with young professionals in their 20s and 30s who are having difficulty coping with life transitions associated with this particular age, such as considering a job or career change, navigating graduate school, beginning or ending a marriage or other long-term relationship, starting a family, or moving to a new area. She finds it very rewarding to help clients who are feeling anxious, depressed, or just stuck during these times and guide them towards a path that is going to bring them meaning and joy in life. Amanda highly values balance in life and therefore makes it a priority to spend time in areas outside of work, which include date nights with her husband, going on walks with her two dogs, reading, running and knitting.
