What is Compassionate Healing?
What is “compassionate healing”? This is the compassion we offer ourselves when we feel lost, angry, sad, hurt, confused, so we can heal from whatever suffering we may be experiencing. Compassionate healing is what I offer through loving presence, active listening, and supportive guidance. By starting your journey in psychotherapy this is your first step towards self compassion.
What To Expect At Your Visit
I will provide a safe space for you to share your story, while also offering wisdom and guidance. I try to offer what I would look for in a therapist; someone who makes you feel seen and heard, validating, while also asking the right questions to get at what is below the surface. Thoughtful reflection to help you see your situation through a different lens. Experience in the field, knowing how to guide session along working towards treatment goals.
"Instructions for living a life. Pay attention. Be astonished. Tell about it."
You may be looking for therapy to make a change, or gain greater insight into your past and present. You may also be looking for ideas or problem solving to help you with a challenging situation. Or perhaps you just want someone to offer empathic listening and to build a trusting and safe therapeutic relationship over time. You may also want to learn how to offer yourself the kindness and compassion that you would offer a good friend. I can help.
I have worked with individuals across the life span from ages 12-85. I am currently accepting adult patients. I offer individual and couples therapy. At a later date I will have openings for teens and may offer group therapy.
I specialize in treating anxiety, ADHD, depression, mood disorders, life transitions, LGBTQ, trauma, dual diagnosis, issues related to self esteem/self worth, women’s issues, relationship concerns, family dynamics/family stress.
Amanda Case, LCSW, SAC
I have been in practice as a Licensed Clinical Social Worker for 20 years. I have practiced in non profit, private practice and HMO settings. It is an honor and a privilege to be invited into your life, so I can help guide, listen, offer ideas, new ways of thinking or doing, and overall support with whatever challenges are going on in your life.
I am trained in CBT, Substance Abuse Counseling, Mindful Self Compassion Practice, Family Systems, Couples Therapy, Motivational Interviewing and ACT treatment including Mindfulness Meditation.
My patients would describe me as someone who genuinely cares, will offer you suggestions or ideas, and knows what questions to ask to get to the bottom of what you might be experiencing, so we can together find solutions. I am highly intuitive and will quickly be able to assess and offer feedback and tools typically during the first or second session, and of course over time as we get to know one another. I have been told by my patients that I am the best therapist they ever had, and I am humbled by these expressions of gratitude. I look forward to our work together and offering you the experience of compassionate healing.
