Amanda Vaughan is a Licensed Mental Health Counselor committed to empowering individuals seeking to create change in their lives. Many of her clients are struggling with stress and anxiety, trying to deepen intimacy or communication in their relationships, or even looking to turn the volume down on their inner critic. Together, she works with clients to build a collaborative therapeutic environment that allows them to gradually discover what may be preventing them from building a more meaningful, intentional life.
Sessions with Amanda include insight-oriented work and skills-based approaches. She gently challenges clients to explore the root of their symptoms, allowing them to gain new insight into patterns in their lives, bring mindful awareness to these patterns, and focus on intentionally shifting their behavior. She also encourages clients to utilize various body-focused techniques; these skills create a sense of calm in the body, allowing them the safety necessary to process difficult emotions or experiences.
With a strong background in acute hospital settings, Amanda is uniquely skilled in working with those who have experienced trauma and loss. She takes special care in creating a therapeutic space conducive to processing this unique type of pain, helping her clients move through these painful experiences and find relief.
Amanda is committed to building an inclusive practice. With a personal and professional emphasis on social justice, she is sensitive to the needs of those with varied backgrounds, identities, and experiences; she welcomes them all.
