Amanda Stephans

MSW, LCSW, and Assistant Clinical Director

My Approach

Amanda’s goal is to help patients create a strong foundation of self by providing perspective, support and motivation. In session, Amanda creates a safe space for her patients to work towards positive change. She understands the pace of each person's therapy journey should be suited to the individual. Amanda works with patients to acknowledge; “it is okay to ask for help” and give individuals grace on the way to self-acceptance. She is a strong advocate of using cognitive behavioral therapy and a strength-based perspective in practice. With her warmth and kindness, she empowers her patients to see the way to a healthier, stronger, and successful self.
