Specializes in working with individuals in anxiety, depression, and grief/loss. Other areas of experience include personality and trauma-related disorders.


Amanda joined Christian Family Solutions in 2021 as a Mental Health Practitioner. She earned her Bachelor’s degree in Interpersonal Communication from the University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point, followed by her Master’s of Social Work degree from the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee.

Amanda has counseled individuals in a variety of community outreaches in Milwaukee, such as the Milwaukee Rescue Mission, Mental Health America, and Easterseals. She has supported individuals and families in home, school, and community settings. Amanda takes a person-centered approach, valuing that each individual has their own story, needs, and goals. Her treatment focus is therefore based in each person’s strengths, empowering them to recognize and overcome barriers preventing them from being the person they want to be. Amanda also values the power of teamwork to help clients develop strong, healthy natural supports to help them achieve their goals.

Amanda is committed to clients’ success by “Teach[ing] a man to fish, and you feed him for a lifetime” and aiding in God’s faithful work because “we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him” (Romans 8:28).
