Amanda earned her doctoral degree in Psychology in 2017 at Brock University, with a specialization in developmental psychology.
Amanda’s past work experience includes a community apprenticeship with a psychologist in private practice, group and individual counselling of children, youth, and young adults, and conducting psychological assessments of personality, intelligence, achievement, memory, behavior, and social-emotional functioning.
With a heart that cares deeply for others, Amanda has found herself drawn to helping people face life experiences in more healthy, positive ways. Her approachable, calm demeanor helps clients feel at ease in sharing their unique memories and stories. Depending on the particular needs of the client, her counselling style borrows elements from cognitive-behavioral and person-centered modalities, with an appreciation for family systems and attachment theories. She offers insight and guidance while helping clients articulate and work toward achieving their own goals. In her practice, she aims to strike a balance between showing kindness, understanding, and compassion, alongside the values of truth, integrity, and genuineness.
Amanda is thankful for her one-of-a-kind husband of almost 11 years, their three lovely children, and the family pup, who all bring joy and a lot of laughter to her life.
