I could not heal myself despite trying many self help methods, books, traditional therapy. I was lost. Working with Dr. Amanda has changed me in so many ways and healed me in places I thought were going to be forever broken and hurting. Do not hesitate to say yes to this opportunity. It will change you and guide you closer to who you really are.

I met an incredible group of women and formed a sisterhood in an intimate and safe space. The transformation is priceless and the work very deep. You will feel Dr. Amanda's heart. She wrapped her arms around us and walked with us, every step of the way. She leads with so much vulnerability, maternal love, compassion, understanding and integrity.
