She is a licensed clinical social worker (LCSW) in the state of Oregon & an honors graduate of San Francisco State University & Portland State University, where she was a two-time recipient of the Laurels Graduate Award. A San Francisco Bay Area native, mixed race Asian/Jewish person, daughter of an immigrant, LGTBQIA ally, & visual artist, she values creativity, healing, diversity, social justice, & storytelling. Amanda has over 15 years experience working in non-profits focusing on youth development, art, & education for people of color, first & second generation Americans, and other underserved communities. She is also highly intuitive, empathic, clairvoyant, clairsentient, & holds strong interests in mysticism, spirituality, & healing of all kinds. In addition to training at the Veterans Affairs Hospital in Portland, she completed certified training in EMDR & is a non-denominational Reverend with an honorary Doctorate of Divinity degree from the Universal Life Church. As a therapist who has been in a lot of therapy herself, Amanda understands the need for a safe space with a safe person as well as warmth, client-centeredness, & humor in the theraputic relationship.

She grew her first tomatoes last year! >>>>>>>>>>>> : <<<<<<<<<<<< HOW I HELP I highlight & combine the Client’s innate strengths & therapy goals with traditional talk psychotherapy, evidence-based practices, skill-building, psychoeducation, my intuitive gifts & other modalities. Folks living with PTSD, Depression, Anxiety, Bi-Polar, addictions, and other diagnoses are supported in learning & practicing tools, coping with symptoms, navigating changes & stress, addressing underlying trauma, & optimizing their lives & relationships. Our time together can be spent processing events, integrating new skills, grounding, enhancing body awareness, examining & updating thinking & behavior patterns, cultivating empathy for the self, exploring family dynamics, amplifying instincts, practicing boundaries, learning about the brain, cultivating self-worth, moving out of survival mode, accessing resources, soothing the hurt parts of ourselves, accessing the wise parts of ourselves, strengthening our inner care-giver, addressing addictions, processing grief, venting, laughing, drawing, brainstorming, problem-solving, criticizing cis-white-supremacist settler-colonialist capitalism, practicing visual meditation, pulling tarot cards, listening to your stories, inviting Ancestral energies to come forth, discussing your relationship & experiences with spirits, deities and plant allies without judgement. If you say you keep on pulling the 10 of Swords or that Mercury Retrograde is kicking your ass I'll know what you're talking about. We all possess healing capacity within & we all need support at different times along the healing path. The world can only be better when the people in it are in the process of personal healing & global evolution. >>>>>>>>>>>> : <<<<<<<<<<<< AN ALCHEMY APPROACH In a literal sense, alchemy it is the scientific/religious/magical process of transforming base materials (common, non-valuable matter) into an elixir of immortality or to make gold. Alchemy is also the precursor of modern chemistry, and for centuries in Europe, this word was interchangeable with any kind of scientific inquiry or experiment. The word ‘Alchemy’ possibly comes from the Arabic word “al-khimia,” meaning “black,” which references the black & fertile soil of Ancient Egypt. Others believe that it derives from the middle Chinese term "kiem-yak" meaning "golden liquor." Alchemy exists in some form in traditions of Ancient Egypt, Ancient Greece, the Kabbalah in Judaism, Buddhism in India, Taoism in China, and the Medieval & Enlightenment Eras to name a few. In a psychological sense, alchemy is the capability to refine, transform, elevate, and merge human & divine consciousness. Through a variety of methods, which are as individual as a fingerprint, yet as universal at the Sun & Moon, the endeavor is to synthesize all aspects of the self & experiences (including the painful, shadowy, hidden, 'icky 'stuff) & transform them into the 'golden' lessons of wisdom & compassion. These inner treasures can be used as healing tools & medicine for both the individual & the collective. You have within you the seed of the exact kind of transformation your world needs. If alchemy means that we may accept & use those messy experiences, confusing & unpleasant emotions & hard-fought lessons to heal, we surely have no shortage of material to work with. >>>>>>>>>>>> : <<<<<<<<<<<< INSURANCE The networks I am in include: Pacific Source, Aetna, & Regence Blue Cross Blue Shield of Oregon.
