Although Amanda works with individuals of all ages, she has a decade’s worth of experience working with children and adolescents in the school system, specializing in at-risk youth, trauma, individuals with neurodevelopmental diagnoses (i.e., Autism Spectrum Disorder, ADHD, etc.), and teaching “quirky” kids social skills.
