Amanda Jurist is a board-certified Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) who specializes in child, adolescent, family and adult psychotherapy. For the past 15 years, she has worked with children and families in a variety of capacities as an educator, advocate and behavioral modification specialist. Amanda has leveraged these experiences and, over the past four years, has further developed and employed her expertise as a psychotherapist at The Denham Group. In this time, one thing has remained constant in all of her work – her heart and passion for helping people.
If you or a member of your family are experiencing difficulty in school, on the job, or in your relationships and are unsure why, it may be time to seek help from a trained mental health professional. Amanda has a strong belief in early intervention; she believes that the earlier a problem is identified and addressed, the greater are chances of healthy exploration and lasting recovery.
In her practice, she recognizes that each circumstance is unique and makes every effort to understand all aspects of one’s life in order to deliver a highly personalized treatment plan that maximizes our chances for success. Amanda works in a collaborative manner to emphasize self-discovery and acceptance as a way to enhance attunement.
She specializes in the delivery of psychodynamic psychotherapy. However, multiple modalities are interwoven in her work based on the needs of the client.
Within the practice, she treats children and adults and has special training in evaluating/treating conditions that appear in early childhood such as attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), learning disabilities, autism, mood disorders (depression), and anxiety disorders, i.e., generalized anxiety, separation anxiety, post-traumatic stress disorder.
To further expand the positive impact of our work, The Denham Group has partnered with Pacific Point Academy and Learning Center, LLC. In this capacity, we provide behavioral structure, social-emotional support, professional development and offer parenting consultations.
