Amanda J Chaney LCSW Experienced therapist

I'm a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) 

with over 20 years of experience working with clients as a therapist and social worker. With my diverse background in mental health and human services, I found my passion: helping clients of all ages find their strengths and discover satisfaction, peace and happiness in their lives. I specialize in guiding female clients through difficult life transitions from adolescence to retirement. I also enjoy working with male clients who find my specialties to be a good match.


Are you feeling stuck? 


I understand key issues for adolescent girls and women that can lead to unhappiness: 

  • Influence of cultural expectations/role dissatisfaction

  • Physical development/changes throughout life

  • Self esteem

  • Body image 

  • Relationship problems

  • Post-partum depression

  • Defining and creating boundaries

  • Recovery from emotional, physical and sexual abuse

My work is client driven and focused on your strengths. I consider my style to be relational and eclectic, drawing on diverse therapeutic styles and concepts, such as cognitive behavioral, mindfulness, and problem solving, so I can fine tune our work to your needs. I believe that change is a result of understanding patterns and finding motivation. My clients and I work collaboratively to find the source of problems and discover the influence of background and mental health on behaviors and decisions. Therapy with me is often fun, directive and empowering. Expect to do some homework and make positive changes.
