Amanda’s Bio

I have experience as a childcare worker with ages 3mths to 4 yrs old. I have also been a babysitter and nanny 10+ years, when in my late teens and early 20s, with ages ranging from 7 weeks to 13 yrs old. I love working with children, have experience with children with disabilities and mental illness, and have a background in child development. I am a registered dance/movement therapist and licensed clinical professional counselor, working in a non profit setting with foster children and veterans with families for the last 5 1/2 years. I recently began a private practice and am looking for a change of pace while I build my business. I love engaging children by using their imagination, playing creative games, and nurturing their development.
