What does a first session with you look like?

The first session, as with all Thriveworks therapists, will involve talking through your needs and goals for therapy — whether those involve managing depression, anxiety, relationship problems, or another mental health challenge. This will enable you to receive the very best care, as a personalized treatment plan will then be developed for subsequent sessions. Thriveworks helps people live happier, more fulfilling lives. Clients are guided and supported as they work through their unique mental health challenges – and, along the way, shown the life-changing power of therapy.

What is your style/approach to therapy?

I offer a variety of counseling approaches including CBT / Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Family Systems. As a provider with a holistic approach, I seek to understand my client completely.

What should we know about your experiences and background?

Amanda Bentley is a board-certified Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner (PMHNP-BC) with over 12 years of experience in the mental health field. She specializes in working with teens, adults, and seniors who are struggling to cope with women's issues, depression, anxiety, bipolar disorders, BPD, stress, adjustment-related issues, OCD, and much more. Amanda completed her Master's Degree in Nursing with a focus on Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioning from Walden University. Her love for this field prompted her to further her education to a position where she can provide medication management, counseling, and various forms of therapy. Amanda has experience incorporating cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), dialectical behavior therapy (DBT), motivational interviewing (MI), and person-centered (PCT) techniques into the care she provides for her clients. Her patient advocacy and ability to meet patients where they are emotionally and mentally are among her strongest skills. Life can not only be challenging but can feel almost impossible at times to manage. Amanda is confident that she would be able to work with you as a partner in reaching your goals. This may come in the form of therapy, counseling, medication management, or all three. If you feel as if you could use just one person to listen, help and support you, schedule an appointment with Amanda today.
