Let's Discover Strengths You Didn't Know You Had...

Welcome! Whether you're curious about therapy, or looking to continue growth you've already started, I'm happy to have you here! I'm Amanda Villaveces, LMFT and I look forward to getting to know you. 

I take a strengths based approach to therapy, meaning we will build off of the tools you already have (even if it feels like you don't many). It's my hope that from this approach, you'll experience growth and develop insights to help you far beyond our work together. 

While you're here, take a look around. Check out my bio to learn a little more about me and meet my interns (graduate level students who can offer free or low fee services). 

If you would like to work with me or one of my students, please contact me for a phone/email consultation to make sure we're a good fit!

Workshops

Sharing the tools and skills I've developed over my last 10 years as a clinician is one of my favorite things! I host workshops focused on parenting, anxiety, burnout prevention and more.
