Amanda Blackwell

Clinical Social Worker/Therapist

Amanda is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker who passionately desires to be part of the journey of healing and growth to make a difference amidst brokenness and sadness. In a world where so many are hurting, she desires to help them walk from the hurting to wholeness and darkness into the light. She genuinely believes her purpose is to come alongside those who may not know how to live the life they hope is possible but seems to be out of reach.

She specializes in walking beside adolescents, families, and adults wrestling with anxiety, stress, depression, hopelessness, trauma, loss, life transitions, family boundaries/generational patterns, social issues, codependency, and grief. Her experience comes from eleven years of engaging with suffering and traumatized individuals in many different environments, including the Children, Youth, and Families (CYF) system, special needs clinics, community mental health, skilled nursing facilities, and hospitals.

 

She utilizes Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy, Mindfulness Exercises, Solution-Focused therapy, Christian Clinical Counseling, and Emotion-Regulation to help her clients walk into wholeness as she helps them mend the broken pieces of their lives and discover a whole new, liberated identity. 

"The grief and trauma of this world are one of the primary mission fields of the twenty-first century. Nobody should be isolated in their grief or trauma. It would be my greatest joy and honor to walk alongside you in this journey of being healed and renewed!"
