Can you remember who you were, before the world told you who you should be?—Danielle LaPorte

Amanda Ziegler LSCSW

Amanda worked as a pediatric social worker for 11 years. During that time she felt humbled to walk with families who were facing grief, loss, trauma, life changing diagnoses, co-parenting within crisis, and general family crisis. While witnessing these journeys, she began to look at situations from a Family Systems lens, and continues to use Systems Theory in her work today. When an event happens to one person in the family, others within the family are affected as well. Amanda believes it is important for all individuals within the family to feel heard and validated in their personal experiences. Amanda feels honored to meet people wherever they are on their journey, and assist them in bringing normalcy and balance back to their lives after a life changing event.
