In Amanda’s own words:
“I incorporate and utilize contemplative therapy which focuses on meditation practices to bring your focus back to your mind, body, and soul. If you are experiencing confusion with your spirituality, I am here to guide you in exploring blocks stopping you from growing your spiritual self, whether it be Christianity or more holistic approaches with nature.”
