Who We Are

With over 10 years of experience, we are able to offer effective and individualized care. We treat a number of mental health disorders, and provide a neutral ground to individuals, families, and couples. 

Our Treatment Focus

Our focus is to help individuals heal, energize, and become aware of their inner strengths. We achieve this by providing a neutral safe space, listening to your concerns, and customizing a treatment plan. We use CBT, play therapy, Sandtray, and many other treatment options to find the right fit for you. 

Our Patient Promise

We promise to be there for you every step of your journey. Our goal is to help you grow from your struggles, heal from your pain, and move forward to where you want to be in your life. 

Our Therapy

Depression & Anxiety

Depression, fear, and anxiety are some of the most common and uncomfortable emotions that we can experience in our lives. Through counseling and treatment, we are able to help you recover motivation, perspective, and joy that you once had in your life. 


Trauma & PTSD

Many individuals can experience symptoms associated with painful and traumatic circumstances. Anxiety, fear, and hopelessness are a few emotions that can linger post traumatic events. We can help you overcome these symptoms and guide you through the process of grief and healing. 


Children and Families

Children often show signs of Anxiety, Depression, and ADHD through disruptive behaviors. We work with children to help identify and understand these behaviors while replacing them with healthier coping strategies. When appropriate, I work with the entire family in order to allow the system to grow and improve.

Amanda Hood LPC


I believe that counseling should be tailored to the individual so I strive to create a unique, safe environment for every person who comes through my door. I work with my clients to assist them in overcoming the issues that are keeping them from moving forward in their life. 

Amanda has her Master's in Counseling from the University of North Georgia and is licensed in the state of Alabama (# 3478).
