Amanda makes counseling and being open/vulnerable so comfortable and rewarding. I have and will continue to recommend her to anyone looking to learn the necessary tools for a healthier mind.
in Kennewick, WA |
One of the best counselors in the Tri-Cities area, Amanda works diligently and strategically to help you overcome whatever problems you're struggling with, and address the problems you're dealing with in your day-to-day life. Within a years time, Amanda's counseling and guidance allowed me to go from being crippled by my mental health to a healthy, functioning member of society again.

She's has so many resources that she gives me and knows how to take care of me. She very flexible with my schedule i would definitely recommend her to my friends and family.

Amanda started working first with my daughter when she was 13 because she was a victim of a sexual crime. I don't know how we would have managed without her! Now Amanda works with my 7 year old and myself. Amanda is wonderful with children, she never pushes you beyond what you're comfortable with. She also knows how religious beliefs are important so she finds out your beliefs on matters and gives you advice accordingly. I would highly recommend Amanda!
