Headway

I am Amanda Wheeler, owner and therapist for HealTHY Mind PLLC. A bit about me, I obtained a Bachelors degree in Psychology from Spelman College in 2002 and a Masters in Social Work from Washington University in St. Louis, in 2004. Following my graduate work, I had the opportunity to provide in-home therapy for families who experienced challenges that might eventually lead to out of home placement for their child(ren) and/or adolescent(s). I also worked with families whose children were being reunited with them following temporary residential treatment. As a licensed clinical social worker I partner with individuals to promote overall wellness using a variety of strategies, including cognitive behavioral therapy and solution focused approaches. I have over 15 years experience of working with families with young children. More recently, my work has been primarily with prenatal and postpartum mothers who experience depression, anxiety and social isolation. As key elements of a holistic approach to treatment, I support natural remedies such as optimal nutrition, exercise, building support systems, and meditation in addition to talk therapy and medication management.
