Blessings! My name is Amanda and I am a Pre-Professional and a Mindfulness Coach at Gilbert Counselors’ under the direct supervision of Julia Spain. I hold a B.A. in Criminology and Criminal Justice from Northern Arizona University and completed my Masters of Professional Counseling from Grand Canyon University October 2019.
As a Mindfulness Coach, I am responsible for coaching, educating and facilitating mindfulness practices to children, adolescences, adults and groups; helping those gain the appropriate skills and behaviors to reduce stress, anxiety, depression and to regulate their thoughts, emotions and behaviors. Obtaining appropriate skills include (but not limited to) becoming aware of physical and emotional conditions without judgment or self-criticism, setting appropriate boundaries, emotion regulation, interpersonal effectiveness skills, manage negative thoughts and beliefs and even deal with rejection or social isolation.
I have a passion for this work and a genuine interest in the clients’ success. When serving clients, I find that being a good listener is often the key to success. Hearing and understanding the client’s needs and making sure the client has the tools/information needed to be successful are the most important aspect of client service. Being a Mindfulness Coach, it is imperative that clients have complete faith in my ability and integrity. The quality of the outcome is directly related to the effort put forth.
In my personal life, I have four beautiful children (22, 20, 16 & 6), whom I love spending time with. I am also a very active member in my church, helping with the women’s ministry and in the process of leadership training with my pastor. Outside of my family and church, I love to recharge and rejuvenate myself by being out in nature where I can meditate and reawake my inner self and make necessary adjustments so I can be the best version of myself.
