Professional statement

Amanda Isenberg is a Licensed Independent Clinical Social Worker in Providence, RI who specializes in supporting clients who are struggling with anxiety, depression, life transitions and adjustments, relationship difficulties, communication and self esteem issues. She has extensive experience helping clients through a number of issues that may arise as they navigate major life transitions, such as beginning or graduating college, starting a family, career changes or guidance through the grief process.

Amanda utilizes a number of different treatment approaches, including Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Family Systems, and Supportive Therapy. She spends time getting to know her clients before developing an individualized treatment plan that works for them. Her clients leave sessions feeling more empowered and able to better cope with day-to-day challenges. Amanda is always educating herself on the latest treatments to ensure her clients are receiving gold-standard care.

Amanda’s first job was working in the NICU where she frequently witnessed perinatal anxiety and depression. She also worked for five years at the Jacobi Center and Children’s Friends and Family Services where she worked with adults who were navigating adoption or reunification. Outside of her private practice, Amanda teaches at the Warren Alpert Medical School at Brown University and individually coaches medical students who are struggling. She looks forward to meeting you.

Message to clients

Finding a therapist that you can open up to and feel comfortable with can be difficult. Sometimes it can be hard to share your inner most thoughts with a total stranger. I strive to build a unique relationship with each client and make every therapy session a warm, inviting and a safe space where clients will feel heard and understood. I engage with clients to make treatment goals that fit their needs. Life events and transitions can often feel overwhelming, I aim to provide a place where clients can sort through their thoughts and feelings.
