Here's What Girls Are Saying:

“I feel like Amanda has helped me in the most amazing way. I appreciate having someone to talk to and she has helped me learn so much about myself. We have worked together through hard times and she never judged me. She is the best support anyone could have, even better than a big sister! I would trust her with everything.”

"I have learned that bad things in life happen, but it is okay because we learn to grow from it! This experience has helped and inspired me to make good choices in life. I was not happy when I arrived here but now that I am at the end of my time here I have noticed how much happier and excited I am to continue in the world. Amanda has been such a great mentor, coach, and friend to me and I love that I have been able to go through this with her. I am now a stronger person and I've grown within this experience with the help of Amanda and my mom."

"Amanda taught me to look inside myself for the answers…."
~ H.L. 15 year old teen

"Coaching with Amanda has been great for me. It has made me a lot stronger and helped me not be afraid. Whoever invented life coaching must be the smartest person in the world. If I didn't go see Amanda there is no telling where I'd be right now. I'd probably still be stuck in my room, crying like it use to be. But instead I'm outside living my life and loving it. Coaching with Amanda has been a life changing experience for me. I love coming to see her in session and letting out all my problems and worries."

Here's What Parents Are Saying:

"[in working with Amanda, my daughter] has learned many ways to express her feelings, she is doing very good with managing her anger, keeping out of trouble, she smiles and laughs more often, and just being a teenager and having to look forward to the future is exciting for her. She loves herself for who she is, loves life, and cares for others. She has become a wonderful young lady who wants more out of life. Happy, excited, sometimes scared, but won't give up."

"Your help with [my daughter] has meant the world to me. She was in great pain emotionally when we first came through your door and now she is a stronger, healthier, happier teen. I can NEVER thank you enough. I don't remember who said this and I'm paraphrasing, but 'He who takes a child by the hand, takes a mother by the heart.' You will be in my thoughts, and prayers always. We will not forget you."
