Amanda Harris, LCSW
Hoffman Estates Licensed Clinical Social Worker
I offer a positive and non judgmental space to make my clients feel safe and heard. Come just as you are, and we can work together, to make each day just a little brighter and kinder. I have been working with individuals, families and groups for almost 15 years. My approach is direct and enthusiastic. I want to encourage my clients to be more intentional with their thoughts and behaviors so that we can gradually move towards a more loving and kinder view of self. Over time, my goal is to help you bring your best self forward with confidence, acceptance and greater awareness.
I have a significant amount of experience and offer therapeutic coaching related to; grief, loss, anxiety/depression, PTSD, relational issues, parenting, blended families, first responder stressors, self-esteem, caregiver burnout, medical challenges, nutritional and exercise encouragement, life transitions and various other general life concerns.
I have worked in various fields relating to foster care, domestic violence, child trauma, adult trauma and hospice. I have supported clients through some of their most stressful times. It is an honor to help people recognize their strengths and resilience during these challenging times. My practice experiences have taken place in the office, homes and hospitals. I have a certification in Mindfulness Clinical Interventions for trauma, anxiety, depression and sex. I am also actively working on becoming a Certified Clinical Trauma Professional. After working in the health care field for many years, I have a special passion for first responders and their families. It is my hope to specifically support those who are helping to care for others. Your work is appreciated and honored.
I believe in establishing an authentic relationship with my clients, I look forward to supporting and encouraging you. Not one type of therapy works for everyone, let’s be creative and work together to find what works best. Together we can do this!
