Amanda W. Myers is a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist and sees clients at Insight Counseling Centers’ offices in Murfreesboro and Nashville.
“As a family scientist, I get to work through the lens of family even when working with individuals. This is my favorite part of clinical work, getting to know someone through their family story! When we look for family lessons and God’s wisdom, new possibilities come forward for personal growth and healing. Being a part of the transformational process that happens in therapy is a deep honor. Collaborating with clients and gleaning courage from one another (mutual encouragement) as well as witnessing the process of problem-saturated talk shifting to solution-focused conversations is a true delight.
I enjoy working with all ages as there is something fun to appreciate about lifespan development at every stage and season. I have exceptional compassion, experience, and research skills for children with special needs, people who are fighting to be free from their obesity and food addictions (especially in the context of weight loss surgery), and college students who are trying to find their place in the world. I also find working with siblings to be incredibly rewarding since our siblings are our first peers and the longest relationship we will ever have on earth.”
