Amanda Kimbrell

Licensed Professional Counselor

I am passionate about helping adults heal their inner child wounds and recover from childhood emotional neglect, and past childhood trauma. I do this through providing psychotherapy, creating elearning courses, and writing about trauma and other mental health issues. When I’m not helping others, I love to crochet, read, enjoy the outdoors, and drink coffee.
