Meet Our Team


Amanda DeAngelo, Master’s Level Intern 

I am a provisional mental health counseling provider who has earned her clinical education from Lewis University.
I currently provide services to child and adolescent clients in individual therapy and group therapy settings. I make my  clients a priority, tailoring person-centered and solution-focused theories to meet their individual needs. I utilize different approaches and techniques in my  sessions including CBT, and play therapy.  My goal during therapy is to make sure my clients feel safe, understood, and met with unconditional positive regard.

 “I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.”-MAYA ANGELOU

Taking the step to begin therapy for yourself or your child can be a daunting one. As a therapist I approach all clients with respect, compassion, patience and understanding. I strive to create a safe and comfortable  environment that facilitates trust and meets the unique needs of each client. My therapeutic approach   entails building off and increasing client’s strengths while enhancing skills to help improve overall   functioning in the areas of home, community and school.  I have specialized in working with children, adolescents and their families for the past 14 years and have   experience working with clients experiencing anxiety, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD),   depression, emotional regulation concerns and other lifestyle and social/emotional issues. Let’s work  together to move toward change.

"The very things that hold you down are going to lift you up!" -Timothy Mouse, Dumbo

Beginning therapy can be a difficult process at first but please know that I am here to support you along this journey. My work with clients allows me to not only teach them new strategies, but also provides time to practice various skill sets together so that they can utilize these tools when experiencing challenging situations and/or strong emotions. One of my goals as a therapist is to establish a safe and nurturing space that promotes personal growth through ongoing support and building therapeutic interventions. I have experience working with clients who struggle with anxiety, ADHD, anger management, impulsivity, stress management, self-esteem, family conflicts, peer relationships, adjustments at home and/or school, social challenges, emotion regulation, and coping mechanisms. I look forward to working together and overcoming any obstacles you may be experiencing.
