Amanda Windchy, LCSW
It’s hard to feel hopeful when you’re experiencing helplessness and disconnection. As a Therapist with several years of experience, I believe in two things:
1. Change is possible when you feel safe, and
2. To feel safe your experience must be understood and heard.
I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker. I hold a Masters of Science in Social Work from the Kent School of Social Work at the University of Louisville. I have clinical experience in working with children and teens in a partial hospitalization setting. I have a great deal of expertise working with trauma survivors and with family and intergenerational traumas. This clinical history has formed the lens of which I view the world and my work within it. Providing trauma-informed care is important to me as a therapist because I believe that having a safe, strong therapeutic relationship is key to success in reaching our goals in therapy.
In addition to a background in treating trauma, I have knowledge and experience in working with individuals who are experiencing anxiety, depression, anger, and family conflict as barriers to their health. My goal is to help individuals explore their own strengths and utilize these in developing safe, appropriate, and adaptable coping skills to deal with day-to-day obstacles.
I will provide a safe, welcoming, and nonjudgmental space for individuals to share openly about uncomfortable and difficult topics. I believe in taking a collaborative approach and want to provide a space where individuals feel heard, validated, and supported. It is my goal for others to see that change is possible, and that I have their best interest at heart. I love to see individuals discover their strengths and be able to accomplish goals they set forth for themselves, watching them flourish along the way.
