Amanda is an outstanding clinical social worker. She vigorously works for social justice through individual and systemic collaborations. Finding very limited EMDR trained therapists who take Medicaid insurance, Amanda saw the need for increased access to therapeutic treatments for low income trauma survivors. She took the challenge on. After the necessary hours of tediously hard work including consulting with peer professionals, local businesses, insurance authorities, law specialists and business experts, Trauma Informed Therapies was born. Trauma Informed Therapies is Amanda’s growing counseling practice that takes Medicaid in addition to most insurances and provides EMDR as one of many therapeutic options offered. Moreover, Amanda is a person of integrity and competence, compassion and drive. Her strong professional character is evidenced by the number of therapists in the Spokane community and beyond who are eager to be a part of Amanda's vision of client care and social justice, as well as, the long waiting list of individuals desiring Amanda as their preferred therapist. People of a variety of backgrounds and experiences are unsurprisingly drawn to her genuine nature.

I have worked with Amanda in many professional capacities for the past 14 years. During that entire time, I have experienced her as kind, curious, justice-oriented and always seeking growth, both professionally and personally. She has always sought the best for her clients’ welfare, putting in much effort and many resources to secure the best possible treatment outcomes for each individual she serves. I have learned much from her. She is able to integrate her training with keen insight to deliver a high level of quality care to complex client issues and traumas yielding significant personal breakthroughs for those she treats. I refer to her on a frequent basis and know that each client will be in capable, compassionate hands.
