Amanda Ramirez, LPC-S
After graduating from Texas State University in 2006 with a Masters in Professional Counseling, I spent the next six years working with adolescents and their families who were involved with the juvenile justice system in Travis County. Working with these adolescents and families taught me a great deal about connecting with people and the value of being heard and understood. I gained experience with depression, anxiety, trauma, substance abuse and behavioral challenges. I loved working with families to help them develop strategies in order to improve their interactions and provide the parents with skills to help their own children. I also had the opportunity to spend a few years working with children, adults, couples, and families involved with CPS which allowed me to continue to grow in my ability to meet people where they are and help them wrestle with the challenges they are facing. In 2015, I opened DnD Counseling, PLLC which allows me to continue to assist clients in re-connecting to their authentic selves and engaging with the life they are pursuing. I am enjoy being able to offer supervision to those new professionals entering the field.
