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 affirming of her clients’ strengths. 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. She believes that positive changes can be achieved when clients fully process losses, trauma and major life transitions. She has a certificate in EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) to help clients recover from anxiety, trauma, and other painful experiences. She treats adults and older adolescents, and approaches clients’ presenting issues from a systemic and a multiculturally-sensitive perspective.
Prior to becoming a counselor, Amanda worked in churches and nonprofits in roles that focused on communication, training, and leadership development. She has extensive experience working with pastors, lay leaders and other individuals in ministry positions to overcome isolation, burn-out and other stressors.
Areas of focus:
anxiety, depression, trauma, perinatal mood and anxiety disorders, grief and loss, life transitions, spiritual crisis, family conflict
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 and friends, fitness, traveling, and volunteering at church and her children’s school. She and her husband have three teenage daughters.
