Amanda J. Gonzalez is not currently accepting new clients.

I am currently accepting clients who would like to be wait-listed for a spot on my schedule. Also, if you email me (amanda@ercounseling.com), I am more than happy to help you navigate getting into services with a colleague. About me: As a growing expert in trauma, mindfulness, and somatic (body) concerns across the lifespan, I will strive to assist you with your concerns. My approach is light-hearted and evidence-informed. I often integrate cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), dialectics, body awareness, and mindful awareness into my education-based style. We will certainly work on attachment concerns and healthy "relating​," too.

I often work with individuals and families on anxieties, survivorship, post-traumatic stressors, somatic/chronic pain, postpartum/perinatal mood disorders or postpartum psychosis. I also have training in psychodynamic theory and child development theory.

"I appreciate each of my client's humanity throughout our work together. Within each client relationship, I hope to engage in a way that is creative, informative, strength-building, and supportive of change. Likely, we will have some laughs, too!"
