Meet Dr. Amanda Kutz
A good life requires a degree of thoughtful intention and I honor the courage it takes to embark on the journey towards personal growth. Throughout my career, I have worked with a variety of individuals treating anxiety and depression. I also work with individuals who are navigating life changes, relationship or career challenges or who are simply interested in deepening their self-discovery. Additionally, I have specialized training in health psychology, aiding individuals in managing health conditions such as diabetes, chronic pain and improving healthy lifestyles. I am certified in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for Insomnia (CBT-I), the gold-standard treatment for chronic insomnia.
In working with you, I hope to empower you to live the life you envision. I aim to create an environment that is safe, understanding and collaborative. Together, we will work to clarify your meaningful core values, identify thoughts, feelings and behaviors that interfere with living in line with your values and learn tools for coping with difficult emotions. I have a foundation in research-backed therapeutic practices including Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy and mindfulness techniques. These approaches will be integrated to create a treatment plan uniquely tailored to your needs and goals.
Reaching out for support may not be easy or comfortable and I commend you for your willingness to consider counseling. I would love to schedule a complimentary 20-minute consultation session to discuss your treatment goals and how my approach may help you along your journey of self-growth.
