Amanda is a Licensed Master Social Worker in Kingston, NY. She loves helping clients gain insight into coping with our world as it is – experiencing anxiety about the future, grieving about our climate, and struggling to get needs met in relationships. She offers a genuine connection and a different kind of therapy experience. One built on your rich life experiences and stories, innovative therapy techniques, and challenging old ideas and ingrained beliefs. She will normalize the experience of negative self-talk, teach strategies to rewrite your internal narrative and build tools for anxiety.
You and Amanda will use a mix of mind, body, and spirit practices to help you feel whole again.
