About me

My name is Amanda Hodges and I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor in Florida, and a Certified Dialectical Behavior Therapist (C-DBT) . I graduated from Nova Southeastern University first with my Bachelor’s in Psychology and then my Master’s in Mental Health Counseling.

I believe in treating my clients with respect and that you are your own individual with the ability to make choices based in spirituality and your personal walk with God, which may be relevant to guiding values, beliefs, lifestyle choices and treatment decisions. I will use a synthesis of clinical expertise and a Christian perspective to address the challenges you may be facing. I will tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs, while utilizing evidenced based strategies primarily from DBT and ACT. Taking this first step to seeking a more fulfilling and happier life takes courage. I am here to support you in that process.

I have over 12 years of experience working with issues such as: anxiety, panic disorder, PTSD, self-harm behaviors, depression, obsessive-compulsive disorder, grieving, abuse victims, personality disorders, addictions both physical and psychological addictions.
