Amanda Mead, PsyD

Some clients come to therapy with an urgent issue, such as a stressful transition, a loss, an unpredicted trauma, or sudden symptoms of depression or anxiety. Others come seeking better understanding of their emotions, relationships and/or experiences, or to change harmful behavior patterns. Psychotherapy can help you address challenges like these, and learn insight, self-awareness, coping and self-soothing techniques. As Michael White, creator of Narrative Therapy once said, “The person is not the problem, the problem is the problem.” This philosophy drives my approach to psychotherapy, as I believe you have, within yourself, the power to change your life story, and it is just the ways in which we think and behave that can be problematic. Given this belief, I bring optimism, hope, perseverance, and compassion to my clinical work and will walk alongside you in your journey, guiding you toward developing greater insight, self-awareness, and growth.
I have worked in a variety of clinical placements: private practice, community mental health, Department of Veterans Affairs; many of these operated within an integrated care model. Most recently, I completed my post-doctoral fellowship at Comprehensive Counseling Connections in Bow, New Hampshire, where I provided psychotherapy (both for individuals and couples) as well as psychological assessment services to clients across the lifespan. Prior, I completed my doctoral internship through the Southern Arizona Psychology Internship Consortium, both at La Frontera Center and at the University of Arizona in Tucson, Arizona, where I provided individual and group psychotherapy and psychological assessment to adults and adolescents.
