My name is Amanda Brown, and I'm a licensed mental health counselor in Florida. I have a masters in mental health counseling and another masters in developmental disabilities. I have been working with a variety of clients aging from 2-65. I specialize in trauma, anxiety, depression, mood disorders, behavioral difficulties, autism, ADHD and ODD, to name a few. You can take a look at my profile to learn a little bit more about my background and approach. Please, also feel free to ask questions. Online counseling is fairly new, and I've found it to be really effective for issues.
My counseling style is approachable and I like CBT best. I have been described as supportive, caring, and compassionate, with a pretty good sense of humor. I like to focus on identifying your strengths and helping you to maximize them to overcome your obstacles. I'm here to help you sort through the things that are difficult right now, and offer you a safe place to be open and honest without fear of judgment. You have taken the first and most important step by reaching out for help. I'd like to help you work on the struggles you are facing; and offer you a safe place to explore your thoughts and feelings.
