Hello, and Welcome!
Life may not be what you have expected it would be. You may often feel unworthy, stuck, and defeated, as you try to get by. You may even question who you are and whether you are good enough to create a better life.
You may think you have failed at life, because of adversities you have faced and the struggle to move forward. It has not been easy, and you often have wondered why you even try.
You want to experience joy and happiness, but your fears and insecurities creep in. You doubt you ever will. You believe you deserve to feel this way.
You may run and hide from your pain and hope one day you will find relief. You continue to punish yourself and suffer alone. It is an endless cycle. You hope one day you will thrive, heal, and transform.
I hear you. I see you. We are here to help.
Here at The Holistic Counseling Center, we believe the mind-body connection is key to long-term change and healing. There may be several root causes to mental health struggles, and when we address the underlying causes and teach effective skills, this is when healing happens.

Hi, I’m Amanda.
Being normal is a myth. We all hold wounds. These stories can often be very painful, lonely, and burdensome. You don’t have to continue to suffer. We see you. We can help. The first step towards change and healing is learning to become more compassionate and mindful. We all need support through the healing process.
I created The Holistic Counseling Center, because I saw the disconnect of mind and body in the treatment of mental health in our society. I have seen the dismissal of symptoms and concerns time again. Often leaving people to suffer alone and to feel hopeless. We can do better.
At The Holistic Counseling Center, our therapists provide evidenced-based practices that focus on holistic, integrative approaches that are personalized and address the whole-body. We integrate the most relevant and supported clinical and research-based approaches, the latest advances in neuroscience, psychology, functional medicine, and nutritional psychiatry to provide tools for healing and transformative change.
No matter your experiences and the wounds they left behind, you are not broken. Healing and change are always possible. Let us help you on this journey. You are not alone in your pain and suffering. We are here to help.
