Using CBT helps individuals to increase self-awareness in order to address thought patterns and unhealthy behaviors. By understanding and re-framing the way we see ourselves, others, and the world we can better navigate the stressors and changes we face every day. I personally gravitate towards strengths-based CBT, highlighting areas where individuals excel and learning to use those strengths to their full potential.
Life transitions can be big or small, sporadic or all at once. Having moved multiple times through the Air Force with her husband and two children, Amanda understands the complexities of navigating life changes and transitions.
As the daughter of a 25 year veteran and an active duty spouse for the last 15 years, Amanda is uniquely qualified in the area of veterans and military service. Being able to understand the complexities of military life influences her ability to counsel service members and their families with compassion and empathy.
