About Amanda Green

Amanda Green is conveniently located in Kitchener (Chicopee Area), Ontario within 15 minutes of Waterloo, Guelph and Cambridge.

On a personal note...I enjoy learning and growing, riding bikes with my husband,  playing pickle ball, taking care of my dog Charlie, and spending time with loved ones.

I believe everyone needs at least one other person to count on, turn to and be themselves with.  We all share the same fundamental desire to feel accepted and valued just as we are.  Similarly, we share the fear of losing our close relationships or not being good enough for the ones we need.  I learned the transformative value of a secure bond after years of "doing it on my own" which has only increased my passion for what I do.  My approach comes from both professional and personal knowledge and experience.

New life, growth, strength & peace ... for your couple bond.

Amanda has had over 18 years of experience working as a therapist (individuals, couples, families and groups) in many diverse settings including hospitals, shelters and various family counselling agencies.   She has decided to specialize in work with couples for the rest of her career because the couple bond is so important for the health and well being of most individuals, families and even communities.  It is foundational in its importance.   

I believe in the dignity and worth of every single person and couple.  I welcome clients of diverse age, faith, ethnicity, sexual orientation, gender and relationship status.  I truly count it a privilege to walk alongside others in their pursuit of wellness and fulfillment.  I connect with you in a non-judgmental, compassionate way and utilize proven and effective therapy approaches to get a felt sense of where you are coming from and what you are hoping to move towards.  Together, we will make a therapy plan for how to get there so you are comfortable and informed throughout the process.​
