“The most beautiful people we have known are those who have known defeat, known suffering, known struggle, known loss, and have found their way out of the depths. These persons have an appreciation, a sensitivity, and an understanding of life that fills them with compassion, gentleness, and a deep loving concern. Beautiful people do not just happen.” ~ Elisabeth Kubler-Ross

Amanda is very attentive and uses various ways to approach the broad idea of “therapy”. She challenges me through questions, thought techniques, and exercises to unravel the yarn of mental hurdles I deal with.
I have no reservations about working with Amanda Brown. She immediately understood and responded to my issue. She is personable, but professional. She's provided new insights and perspectives and has suggested appropriate and helpful assignments. I would happily work with her again should the need arise.
I love Amanda so much. It's been a perfect fit and she truly cheers my day!! I've definitely already refurred her to many friends and family. She connects with me spiritually and she always seems to have the perfect thing to say:)
So deeply grateful to know that people like this exist and are working in a field and space where they can do the most good! Amanda is such a great person who I was assigned to with divine timing. I have heard it takes time for someone to find a good match in therapy; but I was truly blessed to get an intuitive and thoughtful professional who held space and moved at my pace. Amanda was an understanding and supportive professional who guided me through trauma and used gentle but powerful healing energy and expertise and gave me the space to pick myself up and grow through the darkness into the light. She taught me so much, met me where I stood. Challenged my toxic thoughts and patterns and helped me move through it and move forward. Thank you so much for seeing me through to the other side of the pain. She is truly gifted at what she does and anyone who works with her will see themselves grow exponentially with her guidance.
Amanda has helped me so much in the last few weeks! I never had a therapist like her before. I connected with her immediately, she listened very well, and she made me not feel alone. I wouldn’t be where I am today without her help
