Family Member Quotes
“Amanda helped my family through an extremely difficult period with issues of infidelity and special needs children. Without her, I would have ended my marriage and our family would have fallen apart. I cannot overestimate her services to us. She is an extraordinary therapist. She managed to get us talking, listening, and really communicating with one another despite the anger and pain. We felt better and unburdened after each session with her.”
“My husband and I started seeing Amanda to help with the stress of his mother who suffers from a mental illness. Amanda provided so much perspective on the situation and gave us so many coping tools. Even though we started with Amanda for this particular issue, we continued our work with her because she added so much more understanding to our relationship with each other. Amanda is caring and genuinely concerned with the well-being of her clients. She’s continued to be a valuable resource to us and I’m sure she’d be excellent resource to others as well.”

More about Dr. Craig
“My proudest accomplishments as therapist:
Therapy is a journey not a quick fix. There are points during the journey when a client makes a connection between their behavior and an old wound, or does something different in their relationship and gets a different response from their partner and feels connected, or shows signs of healing from hurt.
These moments are the ones that matter the most and make therapy so rewarding! I rejoice in my clients’ successes and celebrate with them their getting better!”
