Therapist Overview

Hi, I’m Amanda. As a therapist, couples counselor, parenting coach, attachment theory marriage counselor, and life coach, it is my privilege to help you find joy, peace, and connectedness within yourself and your relationships.  I am a firm believer that no person and no problem is ever without hope, and that you have limitless potential. I’m here to help you connect with it!

I received a master’s degree in marriage and family therapy from Colorado State University. In my time as a therapist, I have worked with individuals, couples, and families on a wide variety of issues, including: communication, marriage preparation or enrichment, sexuality (LGBTQ sensitive), parenting and the transition to parenthood, affair recovery, anxiety, depression, self-esteem, grief and loss, trauma, recovery from a breakup or divorce, and dating coaching and career coaching, too.

My job is to empower you to be the fullest and best version of yourself, to love who you are as well as the life you build for yourself. I’ll be your ally as you tackle challenges, build lifegiving habits, gain meaningful insight, and create a life in which you feel at home.

Marriage Counseling, Couples Counseling, & Relationship Coaching

In my work as an attachment theory marriage counselor, couples therapist, and relationship coach, I support couples and families to build trust and closeness, creating a secure base where each person can feel safe and understood.

I understand that relationships are hard! It’s easy to feel overwhelmed, and to become disconnected from the people who are most important to you.  Whether you’re struggling with intimacy, caregiving, or conflict, I’m here to help.

My style is warm, direct, and experiential. One of the reasons I believe my work with couples and families is so effective is because in session with me, you’ll be able to practice skills and experience new ways of interacting in the moment, setting you up for success outside of session.

I can help you with many relationship issues including premarital counseling, struggles with conflict and communication, the transition to parenthood and successful co-parenting, sexual concerns, finances, affair recovery, blended families, and much more.

Working with me will help you become the expert on your partner, learning how to coregulate emotions as a part of a two-person system, enjoying a new, deeper level of connection. This secure base will allow you to tackle challenges with greater ease, operating as a trustworthy team.

I draw heavily on Attachment Theory, using evidence-based tools from Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT), the Psychobiological Approach to Couple Therapy (PACT), and the Gottman Method to help you communicate, heal past hurts, and truly enjoy one another.

Life Coaching and Individual Therapy

As a therapist and life coach, I can work with you individually to discover and embody your best self.  Whether you want to focus on internal struggles in therapy (like anxiety, depression, or self-esteem) or external issues in coaching (like relationships, breakups, career choices, or life transitions), my approach is holistic and systems-oriented — we’ll look at how each part of you influences the whole, honoring your mind, your heart, and your body.

I’m here to help you get to know, to respect, and to care for each part of yourself. Whether you prefer an active, solution-focused approach or a gentle, affirming experience, I can help you  build habits of self-compassion, gain emotional awareness and regulation, and discover new heights of personal potential and satisfaction.

Clients tell me that they feel deeply understood and accepted during their work with me, and that as a result, they are better able to understand and accept themselves.  I view each session as an opportunity to meet you where you are, and to empower you to take brave, manageable steps toward where you want to be.

If I serve you as a life coach, dating coach, or relationship coach, I can help you get clear about your goals, your inner and external obstacles, and learn the skills and strategies that will help you make positive changes in yourself, your relationships, and your life. I am also licensed to practice therapy in the state of Colorado. If you are a resident of Colorado I can assist you with deeper issues, and provide treatment for mental health conditions.
