Hi, I'm Amanda. Therapy is awkward and I'd like to change that.
Licensed Clinical Social Worker in , CA
As mentioned, I have worked in the treatment of addiction for over a decade. Currently I work with both people who have recently completed treatment and are working towards building stability in their early recovery as well as people who have been sober for many years.
As someone who has ADHD, I know all too well the intense shame and frustration that comes from trying to be successful in a world that isn't set up for you. I want to help you understand your mind and how it works. With that understanding, we can collaboratively create a system for you that works with your needs.
For my first 8 years as a therapist, I worked in addiction treatment. In that time I have worked with hundreds of clients struggling with alcoholism from all walks of life. Today, I work with clients who have successfully managed to remain sober long term but still find themselves struggling to live the lives they envisioned upon getting sober.
