Amanda is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in the state of Florida. She graduated with her Master of Social Work in 2018 from the University at Buffalo. She decided to chase the sunshine down in Florida upon graduating, where she began her professional career working primarily with children, adolescents, teens, and young adults for a community mental health agency. This population tended to have various backgrounds of trauma and mental health issues.
Amanda founded her private practice in 2021, Ground and Grow Your Mind Therapy, LLC, where she specializes in working with teens and young adults experiencing symptoms related to depression, anxiety, self-esteem, life transitions, and interpersonal conflict including communication and boundary setting.
Amanda utilizes strengths-based, person-centered, eclectic, and holistic approaches in her work with her clients. She believes the mind-body connection and bringing awareness to ones’ emotions are crucial aspects to the healing process. She includes Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), meditation, grounding, art-based activities, journaling, and psychoeducation within her practice.
