Hello and welcome, my name is Amanda and I look forward to helping guide you on your healing journey. I have been in practice since 2006. My educational history and clinical training includes a B.A. in Biology with honors from Ithaca College, RN/APRN with honors from Mass General Institute of Health Professions, certificate in healthcare management and leadership from George Washington University and post-masters advanced studies in neurobiology of mental disorders/neuropsychiatry and clinical psychopharmacology from University of New Hampshire and Foundations of Functional Medicine from the Elite Nurse Practitioner program. I have over 17 years of experience prescribing and managing behavioral health concerns as well as working in family practice, urgent care, substance use and recovery, eating disorders management and hormone optimization.

Treatment Approach

I believe that in our current healthcare climate the most frustrating and discouraging issue for patients is feeling unheard, unseen, judged, marginalized or placed in a “one-size fits all” treatment box. I am passionate about providing personalized medical services and addressing each one of my patients’ individual values and unique medical needs. My goal is to bring a kind, approachable and responsive style to every visit and interaction.

Currently there is a dramatic shift taking place in the healthcare field as functional medicine and alternative, holistic and integrative therapies are increasingly being used to address behavioral health concerns.I practice an integrated mental health approach which emphasizes treating the mind, body and spirit through a patient centered focus that considers all aspects of the individual person in order to optimize a sense of health and well being.

In my approach to treatment, I combine scientifically proven alternative and complementary methods with conventional medications and psychotherapy to address the physical, psychological, and spiritual needs of individuals with anxiety disorders, depressive disorders, sleep disorders, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), substance use disorders, eating disorders and mental conditions associated with aging.

I use a functional medicine approach to address the root cause of symptoms and health maintenance through multiple angles including gut health/digestion, sleep, diet, stress, hormones, thyroid function, toxins, genetics, medication and nutritional supplements.

I also believe in the transformative power of psychedelic assisted therapies as well as plant based medicine and provide both Ketamine Assisted Psychotherapy (KAP) as well as certification for therapeutic medical cannabis.

I am particularly interested in working with individuals with co-existing thyroid disorders and depression, low-testosterone and depression, female hormonal imbalance and anxiety/depression, obesity and unhealed trauma, as well as healthcare workers struggling with anxiety, depression, care-giver burnout, PTSD/trauma and substance use disorders.

Work with me to heal your Body and Mind together and get to the root cause of issues.
