My name is Amanda Underwood (she/her). I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist and a Certified Clinical Trauma Professional in the state of Tennessee and Washington State. I utilize a trauma focused, client centered approach to work with those with a history of trauma (PTSD/CPTSD), anxiety, depression, disordered eating, and relationship difficulties such as family and/or intimate partner dynamics. I am able to provide therapy to those who have been harmed by toxic religion and have a desire to deconstruct/reconstruct their current or past faith practice. I'm also comfortable processing issues of systemic oppression, trauma, and racism.
I am able to work with teens, adults, couples, and LGBTQIA+ individuals.
I am able to offer in person or live virtual sessions.
My desire is to create a space of acceptance, where you are able to put forward the most vulnerable parts of yourself in order to heal the wounds of the past and present. I do this by helping my clients utilize language to understand their symptoms, validate their experiences, and provide room for their most authentic self. My main objective is to create a safe space for you to come and connect with yourself so that you are more able to obtain healing and make meaningful connections with others.
