Amanda was born and raised in Lander, Wyoming. She graduated from the University of Wyoming with her Bachelor’s degree in social work in 2018 before going on to complete her Master’s Degree in Social work in 2019. During her college career Amanda worked primarily with adolescents in various settings which included: residential treatment, the Laramie Youth Crisis Center, and at Greater Wyoming Big Brothers Big Sisters as an AmeriCorps volunteer. As a masters student she had the opportunity to work for the University of Wyoming’s Defender Aid Clinic advocating for community and incarcerated clients in court settings.
Her approaches and strategies for therapy include building a strong therapeutic bond, being strengths based, and using motivational interviewing to help understand the client’s perspective. Working with Native American youth is also a passion of Amanda’s as she herself comes from a long line of proud Turtle Mountain Chippewa people.
After graduation Amanda began her social work career at the University of Wyoming as the Suicide Prevention Coordinator where she facilitated trainings and prevention programming. Once deciding that being a counselor was her true calling Amanda came to work for Northern Star. I look forward to meeting you!
