Amanda Diamond | St. Louis, MO
Welcome! I'm Amanda Diamond, a Provisionally-Licensed Professional Counselor (PLPC), in the state of Missouri. As a mental health care provider, I have experience working with adults, teens, adolescents and their families. I have been trained as a trauma-informed provider, and am knowledgeable and understanding of working with disabilities. I received my Masters in Rehabilitation Counseling, equipping me with extensive training in Vocational Rehabilitation and Career Counseling. In addition to providing counseling services within the St. Louis community, I collaborate and consult with Family Law practices to provide Client Advocacy and "Support Series" workshops. My office is located in Downtown Clayton, at The Care Collective, and I am under the supervision of Robert Bertolino, PhD, LPC, LMFT, and under mentorship of Dena Tranen, LCSW, founder of The Care Collective and Middle Way Counseling.
As a professional, I feel passionate about being involved in work that is meaningful and focused on improving the lives of others. I pride myself in being organized, driven, creative, and detail-oriented. While continually seeking out ways to improve my effectiveness as a counselor, my genuine goal is to make sure everyone who walks through my door feels accepted and that they belong.
Seeking therapy is a brave step to improve ones' life, and
I believe that with the right support and approach, healing is possible and within reach.
Prior to becoming a Master in Rehab Counseling, I earned my Bachelors in Psychology and Minor in Multi-Cultural Studies from The University of Missouri-Columbia, Honors College, in 2011. After undergrad, I joined Teach For America (TFA), serving as a corps member and active alumna. While in TFA I taught Visual Arts, Media Literacy, and Science-Art Enrichment, in addition to writing and testing curriculum. I was awarded the honor of Teacher of the Year, in Houston Independent School District, and founded ‘Ladies League,’ a support group for pre-teen and teen girls. Ladies League focused on self-esteem, understanding boundaries, building confidence, and navigating mental health through the lens of an adolescent female in our society. After spending time in the Education sector, I shifted my focus to Healthcare, where I gained a decade worth of experience by partnering with long-term and short-term care communities to meet the needs of the aging population through comprehensive and compassionate care.
