Therapy Services for Children, Teenagers, Adults, and Families, Cary & Raleigh NC
Amanda is a neurodivergent-affirming therapist who believes that differences in how we process information can be a strength despite what we may have been led to believe by our society. Neurodivergence includes individuals with Autism, ADHD, sensory processing differences, dyslexia, or any condition characterized by core differences in how you perceive the world. Oftentimes this creates issues with our self-concept leading to feelings of anxiety, depression, self-doubt, and inadequacy. School can be especially tough for neurodivergent kids and teens. Amanda believes in a strong client-therapist relationship, characterized by trust, acceptance, and unconditional positive regard. She helps her clients build resilience through mindfulness which promotes nervous system relaxation. This helps quiet the mind resulting in a sense of clarity, ability to problem solve, and heal.
