Work with Amanda feels emergent. Neither of us know where a session will go when we sit down, and yet describing the unfolding magic that happens with her as organic seems to sell short her agency in it. To describe her intuition as telepathic is not hyperbole, and she marries it with a confidence to interject and redirect when our flow gets stuck or blocked, as well as a broad toolkit for re-immersing us in the embodied subconscious.
I started this work because I wanted to shed patterns that no longer serve me. It has become clear to me through our sessions that these patterns live in my body and not just my mind. Through our work, I have cultivated an internal sense of safety, softened old tensions, and built healing relationships with old wounds. As the tight places in my body soften, my sense of freedom to engage with the world as it is, unmediated by past wounds, grows and grows. The mind says, “I don’t know,” but when you’re quiet, you do know. Amanda brings you into that wisdom.
You have opened my eyes to new possibilities. You’ve held space for me to be me, and that is the most anyone can ask for. I feel open, less afraid, and more grounded on this life journey. I know our sessions are not a cure-all, but damn they’re the check-up I’ve needed.
