Not currently accepting patients

Hi there, I'm Amanda!

Hello, my name is Amanda Petric, and I am a Clinical Social Worker in Ohio, EMDR certified, Telebehavioral health certified, and a Registered Yoga Teacher. I have been working in social services in Ohio since 2010, and I have been providing therapy as a licensed clinical social worker in Ohio since 2015.

My approach

I have an eclectic therapeutic style, pulling from my educational background at the Ohio State University, education and certification as a registered yoga teacher, and professional training in strength-based and solution-focused brief therapy, trauma-focused cognitive behavioral therapy (TF-CBT), eye-movement desensitization and reprocessing therapy (EMDR), and creative and expressive interventions such as art, body movement, play, and mindfulness.

My focus

I specialize in the following areas: trauma, sexual violence, stress management, self-esteem, self-acceptance, LGBTQIA+ issues, adjustment issues, depression, and anxiety. I do my best work with clients who are prepared to work hard inside and outside of the therapy space.

My communication style

I establish a compassionate, patient, and accepting environment where individuals can gain new information, strengthen their coping strategies, and recover at their own pace. I assist individuals with recognizing their strengths, embracing self-compassion, and self-learning in a way that is non-judgmental. I also assist individuals with moving from stuck points and recovering from trauma.

My journey to mental healthcare

I have a passion for people and an eye for resilience! Every human is a unique human and working as a therapist I have the honor and privilege of getting to know so many remarkable humans as they travel through their life journey. It is my job to work myself out of the job--to support you until you feel prepared to launch out of therapy services!

My goals for you

I approach goal-setting with kindness, patience, and determination. We will create a realistic and achievable goal that has built-in metrics to measure the progress made over the course of our working together.

My first session with you

You can expect a call from me prior to our first session to explore questions and to provide a means to reach me directly. In our first session, the most important thing is to ensure our therapeutic relationship feels comfortable. I will ask a lot of questions to get to know you better and to get to know the issues better. Our session will end with the development of our first treatment plan and check-in to ensure the therapeutic relationship feels appropriate. It may last more than an hour!
