Through a combination of education, training, personal experience and intuition, that's rooted in a heart centered and holistic approach, I offer guidance to assist those in the awakening process.
Amanda is a trained, licensed psychotherapist in the state of Florida (LCSW), holding a Masters degree in Social Work, with a specialization in treating addiction behaviors (CAP). Her holistic approach encompasses a practice that is trauma informed and draws from the latest neuroscience, polyvagal theory, epigenetics research and studies that are grounded in the mind-body-spirit connection to support trauma healing with clients. Her therapeutic approach is an eclectic mix of mindfulness, process oriented, somatic experiencing, compassion focused, strengths based, cognitive behavioral and internal family systems. Amanda's work has been influenced by Swiss psychoanalyst, Carl Jung, American spiritual teacher and psychologist, Ram Dass (Richard Alpert), Bessel A. van der Kolk, MD, Harville Hendrix, Ph.D., Richard Schwartz, Ph.D, Gabor Maté, MD, Clarissa Pinkola Estés, Ph.D and spiritual teachers, Gabrielle Bernstein and Sarah Blondin. In addition, she is a spiritual development coach that teaches from the perspectives of presence, mindfulness, heart coherence, holistic well-being and her personal life experiences. She is certified under Gabrielle Bernstein's Level 1 Spirit Junkie Masterclass training. She is a Registered Yoga Teacher and holds a Usui Reiki Level Two Certification of Attunement. She also completed a year long mentorship with priestess, therapist, spiritual coach, Rasia Pouncie, in May 2020. Amanda was put on her spiritual path, fifteen years ago, with her own recovery from drug addiction that was the catalyst to her spiritual awakening. Throughout the years, she has developed spiritually through her work within the Twelve Step Programs, being an active student and teacher of the metaphysical text, A Course In Miracles, work with The Laws of the Universe, Inner Child Work and ongoing intensive transformation and self study. Her intuitive abilities have been enhanced in her work with prayer, meditation, energy work, divination, crystals, the chakra system, yoga/body work, astrology and other metaphysical concepts and practices that are intuitive in nature. Amanda's overall goal in her work is to assist others in Attuning to the Inner Voice to Free the Authentic Self.
