About Amanda Nephew
As an LMFT (Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist) I provide individual, couple, premarital and family therapy. I found my love of working with couples and families during my graduate level internship in 2011 with well known and seasoned therapist Mark Anderson, MA, LMFT, LP. Although couples therapy is my main focus, my clinical experience and interest also includes a wide spectrum of individual therapy concerns (such as depression, anxiety, grief, life transitions, relational issues, occupational stress, family of origin issues) as well as crisis work, domestic violence support, chaotic family conflict management, youth probation and child protection issues. Check out my Services tab for more specifics.
Since opening Amanda Nephew Therapy Services in 2012, I see that most people seek therapy because they are hurting, frustrated and desperate for something to change. Other times, people reach out for help when life is feeling stable and they just want to feel even better. Either way, as your therapist, I see my role as coming along side to enable you to tell your story, explore it's meaning and help you change it- whether that be individually or relationally. Through the use of a therapeutic relationship and a blend of techniques, I can be a catalyst of change for kids, men, women and couples to strengthen their relationships, heal old wounds, explore current life issues and change negative patterns.
