Amanda Hullinger LPCC has a Masters in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from Ashland Theological Seminary. She holds a Bachelor of Arts in English from Wheaton College and a Master of Arts in Religion from Yale University.
Amanda’s approach to clinical counseling is collaborative and affirms her clients’ innate strengths. She works with individual adults (18+) to help them recover from anxiety, depression, trauma, grief, relationship challenges and major life transitions. She is an attentive listener and an effective communicator, and she is committed to creating a safe therapeutic space in which her clients can heal. Her work addresses clients’ needs and goals from a systematic and a multiculturally-sensitive perspective.
As a trauma-informed counselor, Amanda incorporates somatic awareness and attunement into the therapeutic process regularly. She has a certificate in EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) and uses it to help clients recover from spiritual, physical, verbal and emotional abuse as well as anxiety, grief and other difficulties. Amanda has extensive experience working with pastors, spiritual leaders and other members of church communities to help them overcome the effects of burn-out, spiritual crises and trauma.
Amanda grew up in the Midwest, but she also has enjoyed living in other parts of the country and the world, including England, Chicago, and New York City. When she isn’t counseling, Amanda enjoys spending time with her family, sharing coffee and good books with her friends, and traveling as often as possible. She and her husband have three amazing daughters and two ridiculous dogs.
