“I really appreciate how she gives me what I need. I’ve had therapists that hmm and ha and poke and prod and sit around waiting for you to come to some philosophical realization on your own, and I have neither the need or time for that. She is able to work with me where I’m at each week and I really value her.” – Patient
“Amanda is seriously the best mental health professional I have ever worked with in my entire life. She is compassionate and knowledgeable. She always listens, takes notes, and remembers what I told her. I have made more progress in the time I have worked with her than I have made in the YEARS of therapy with other professionals. I am grateful for her and Mindful Lemon is lucky to have her!” – Patient
