ABOUT AMANDA
  • I am a Licensed Professional Counselor with a Mental Health Service Provider designation, and I practice from a place of compassion and hope. I have the strength of seeing the best in people and recognizing those small glimpses of growth and change, even in the hard places.
  • I am a rare Nashville native who grew up in a time where Opryland existed and rush hour traffic on I-65 did not.
  • I am steady, calm and kind but also deliberate and determined, serious about my roles as counselor, mother, wife and friend. 
  • I find joy in the thrill of a trail run, cooking meals bursting with color, a good cup of coffee, and savoring both the playful and tender moments with my children, who are constantly teaching me what it means to live in the moment and without inhibition.
