Amanda Jacobson, LMHC
Amanda is a licensed therapist in clinical practice since 2013. She has experience working in both inpatient and outpatient settings, with group and individual therapy, and she has a passion for working with people recovering from addictions, as well as codependency, depression, anxiety, trauma, relationship challenges, and major life transitions. She earned her master’s degree from Boston University.
Amanda draws from person-centered and existential frameworks in counseling, believing in the power of the therapy relationship to foster change, and focusing on the questions of meaning and purpose inherent to living life. She is comfortable integrating spirituality as much as it is helpful. She guides and supports people to learn skills for healthier relationships with themselves and with others, and helps people to discover their own answers as they do the work of therapy, to find more peace, freedom, and meaning in their day-to-day.
Amanda takes a collaborative approach with clients, working with flexibility, genuineness, and humor, and uses a variety of techniques from person-centered therapy, cognitive behavioral therapy, positive psychology, and mindfulness-based practices.
