Amanda Crowder, LCSW
My name is Amanda Crowder and I am the owner of Amanda K. Crowder, LCSW, PLLC. I graduated from the University of North Carolina at Charlotte in 2008 with a Bachelors degree in Psychology, and in 2012 with a Masters degree in Social Work. I am a certified trauma specialist and EMDR trained.
As a therapist, I am creative in my therapeutic approaches, and find ways to engage with even the most challenging clients. I remain passionate and supportive no matter the individual, and regardless of the challenges and issues we face together in therapy.
I find ways to break through to the most resistant clients and family members, improving their experiences and reducing the difficult symptoms they face in life. I am confident in my interventions that have resulted in individual and family member engagement and improvement in accomplishing therapeutic goals. I truly believe that all people are good at heart, but sometimes struggle and make bad choices or decisions. These bad choices or decisions do not define who we are. We can all find happiness and gain a sense of control and well-being in life. Therapy is powerful! When we are invested in making change, change will happen.
Anastasia Harymeyer, LCSW, LCAS
Having a strong and supportive therapeutic relationship can assist an individual in overcoming some of the most challenging obstacles in life. I believe a collaborative approach that utilizes strengths and the development of effective skills can assist someone in overcoming and moving forward. No challenge, however small, is insignificant if it is important to you. I believe in treating the whole person and strive to create an open and honest environment that works to balance acceptance and change.
I am currently providing both mental health and/or substance abuse services to adolescents and adults through individual and family therapy. I have specialized training in both DBT (Dialectical Behavior Therapy) and Seeking Safety to assist in treating mood dysregulation, self-harm/high risk behaviors, relational issues, substance use, and trauma. I also have experience working with individuals who struggle with depression, anxiety, women’s issues, grief, and behavioral concerns. I provide both evening and Saturday appointments.
