Testimonials

"In just 2 hours I was able to access parts of myself that I have never been able to access. I felt the freedom to experience whatever came up without judgment. Amanda is an amazing guide, helping me access the parts of me that are dying to come out. I felt safe, loved, and supported. I now have so much more insight into myself and my relationship."

"I'm 40 years old now and have been in and out of traditional talk therapy and psychotherapy since I was 12... In 28 years it just hadn't helped - although I desperately wanted to heal.​ 

 

I've had 14 private sessions with Amanda now. In the beginning I honestly didn't trust that it would work. I don't think I'll ever be happier about being wrong. I've now been able to relieve symptoms during flashbacks, to calm panic attacks, and release trauma from my body. It's like I was living in a dark forest of perpetual night and the sun is just rising for the first time."

"Amanda uses a holistic approach in a gentle and non-intimidating way. She really has a gift for helping people connect with their inner self. Her classes have helped me transform the triggers that kept showing up in my life, allowing me to better connect with myself and understand the subconscious beliefs that were controlling me. I’m now able to catch my patterns more quickly and cultivate a different experience in my mind and body."

Dave in Colorado

"I've been in and out of traditional therapy for over a decade. Doctors would listen to my story, write me a drug prescription, and scoot me out the door. This only made things worse. I felt unheard and invisible to the world. I was having a spiritual crisis, and I knew there was no pill for that. I decided to try a different approach.

 

Amanda is the only therapist that chose not to label me, not to try and "fix" me, and not fit me into society's boxes. She did not heal me, but rather gave me the tools I needed in order to heal myself. I highly recommend her to anyone going down the path of inner work and self discovery."

"I was quite nervous as I wasn't exactly sure what to expect, but from the moment I walked in the door, Amanda's demeanor and calming presence put me at ease. She would constantly remind me that where I am in the present moment is okay. I gained so much from being open to learning and sharing without fear of judgment. Amanda has a passion for helping others that is apparent to anyone who meets her even once. It is more than just a job for her, it is her passion. She truly cares about people."    

Vanessa in Colorado

"My first workshop with Amanda happened the day after I received a complex-PTSD diagnosis. She shared a similar story to mine and gave me hope that I can heal from the trauma I've experienced. Every step of the way she has gone above and beyond any expectations I could have. She genuinely cares about her clients and students and it shows in her devotion to helping others along this challenging journey."

"Throughout my journey, talking about traumatic experiences and verbally expressing myself have been the most challenging. This has been especially true in over 20 years of traditional talk therapy, where I normally have overwhelming freeze responses that cause me to get stuck in a non-verbal state.

I've been seeing Amanda for over six months now. The safe, nurturing space that is created when we are working together allows me to be immediately at ease. With her approach, my heart is open, my words come freely, and I become present to honor the needs of my psyche and body."
