Dr. Amanda Brandenburg


Together we’ll gain insights into your current struggles and strengths, ultimately helping you become your own advocate for positive change. My therapeutic style centers on genuine empathy and curiosity.

Understanding ourselves and our past experiences is crucial for making healthier choices and improving lives. Together we’ll create a supportive environment where you can explore difficult feelings and experiences. As your therapist, I’ll aim to make therapy a place where you feel safe and genuinely┬ácared for.

I became a therapist because of my strong desire to help others and be a champion for the disadvantaged.

Amanda Brandenburg, Ph.D. Therapist Charlotte

I believe that by cultivating self-compassion and empowerment, you can take control of your life and relationships in a healthier and more fulfilling way.

Throughout my career, I’ve had the privilege of assisting individuals from diverse backgrounds in uncovering their strengths and fostering self-awareness. I deeply value each person’s unique stories and experiences in therapy.
