Amanda Parent, LICSW, LADC 1, CADC
Amanda specializes in dual diagnosis clients, particularly those with Borderline Personality Disorder, Posttraumatic Stress Disorder, and substance or behavioral addictions. Using a combination of psychoeducation, cognitive behavioral therapy, and dialectical behavior therapy, Amanda helps clients to become the person they are meant to be. Amanda is known for giving clients a combination of reading materials, written homework assignments, and creative suggestions for reducing symptoms between sessions. She believes that knowledge is power, and tries to teach clients that once they understand their diagnosis, they are much more likely to overcome it.
Amanda also sees couples who are looking to improve communication, reduce discord, and increase relationship satisfaction.
