Amanda Golden de Duke, LPC Intern Supervised by Christy Graham, LPCS RPTS
I’d like to introduce Acorn’s newest clinician. Amanda graduated from a christian university, lived in El Salvador, and has worked with children in foster care. She brings a wealth of insight into bi-cultural families and is bilingual in Spanish. She resides in Little Elm, has a small child and a great husband. But let’s hear from her!
Does your child seem distant, angry, or difficult to understand?
Through joy and effective communication, I work to connect with children to assess where they are at and guide them to achieve the desired therapeutic goals we will set out as a mutual agreement early on. I offer therapy for children ranging from trauma recovery to social interaction and building communication skills and relational understanding.
If your child seems “buried” within themselves and is isolating themselves more and more or if you notice they are nervous or showing strange behavior, bring them to me and we will work together to bring your child on a path of healing and restoration back to who they truly are. Through play, art, and conversation I can help your child overcome their obstacles; ranging from social and behavioral issues to mood and impulse control.
I am also happy to counsel those struggling to decide which area to study or career to choose onward to a path they feel confident is right for them as they get ready to launch on their own. Together, we will set goals and discuss practical ways to take steps toward your desired progress. No judgement; I am here to connect with you and journey alongside you as you take steps toward healing and wholeness.
I am genuine and caring and would be delighted to meet you.
