“The reason many people in our society are miserable, sick, and highly stressed is because of an unhealthy attachment to things they have no control over.”
–Steve Maraboli, Unapologetically You: Reflections on Life and the Human Experience

Amanda is the Director of Clinician Development at The Center for Mindfulness & CBT, a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC), and trained as a Dance/Movement Therapist. She received a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Human Development from the University of Wisconsin – Green Bay and a dual Master of Arts Degree in Dance/Movement Therapy and Counseling from Columbia College Chicago. She is also a Clinical Supervisor supporting interns and provisionally licensed clinicians. Amanda believes in holistic healing using a dynamic and creative approach to psychotherapy to help her clients live present and authentically. She believes every human is capable of change and the most effective way to start the process is to work together through Curiosity, Openness, Acceptance, and Love (COAL); collaborating to identify therapeutic treatment goals and to walk together in the treatment journey. Amanda uses an eclectic approach to therapy incorporating multiple therapeutic techniques including TF-CBT, Solution-Focused Therapy, Mindfulness, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, and body-based interventions. Prior to joining The Center for Mindfulness & CBT, Amanda worked at Hyland Behavioral Health on the inpatient psychiatric units, where she supported adolescents and adults. She specializes in treating survivors of trauma, anxiety, and depression. Amanda is in-network with Aetna, Anthem Blue Cross Blue Shield, Cigna, United Healthcare, and UMR.
