Amanda J. Culver, LCSW

Board Approved Clinical Supervisor

 

Thank you for taking the time to visit my website. I hope you find me to be a good fit to help you with
your life journey. I believe the therapy process works, but you have to be willing to do the work and make
the changes necessary. I am truly convinced change doesn't happen, unless change happens. This is the
place to get it all out- the good, the bad and the ugly. We talk about it in here! I will accept you for you,
no judgement here. Let's get real and talk about it. I am patient and kind. I will validate and empathize
with you. I will probably challenge you and help you think in new and different ways. My space will
hopefully be a calm, relaxing place for you to work through life challenges and find a balanced life.

spending time with family.
