More about me

Licensing: LCSW
Years in Practice: 3
State: RI

Congratulations, I am really proud of you! This is the first step to a more manageable tomorrow.

My name is Amanda Garcia and I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) in Rhode Island and Massachusetts. I earned my Bachelor's Degree in Human Development and Family Studies from the University of Rhode Island and my Masters Degree from Simmons University. My experiences have included serving as a Director of an early learning center, a Case Manager in the foster care system, a School Social Worker in a behavioral school, and an Individual, Family and Couples Therapist in an outpatient setting.

I create a therapeutic environment to support you on honoring your past, living in the present and imagining a more empowered future. I work collaboratively on setting goals for optimal outcomes and helping identify ways to manage current or long-standing challenges through a trauma sensitive approach. Most of my work has been in diverse and vulnerable populations with different people challenged by adversities and complex trauma through abuse, neglect or life events. No challenge is too big or too small to seek support from someone who will be on your team through the journey!

I look forward to working with you!

About online counseling

Online counseling allows you to receive care from an online mental health practitioner via phone, video chat, or instant messaging. It is convenient for those who may have trouble getting to or would prefer not to have in-person therapy appointments. Ranging from $60 to $90 per week, online counseling is generally more affordable than in-person counseling. A study by researchers at University of California, Berkeley found that online counseling can be just as effective as face-to-face therapy while being more convenient, affordable, and accessible.

Working with Amanda was amazing! Her calm, caring and witty demeanor really helped me feel comfortable and open. In just a short time, we’ve made amazing progress on goals I thought I’d never be able to face. I couldn’t be more grateful for my time with her.

I love Amanda. I feel like I made an instant connection with her. I feel safe and extremely comfortable sharing with her my issues. I did not feel the same with the therapist I had before I joined BetterHelp.

Just started and so far so good. She puts in words what i’m feeling eloquently and makes me feel heard. Also super friendly and understanding but also helps me ponder on the hard questions.

After a LONG search, I have finally found Amanda, who is the perfect therapist for me. First of all she is highly educated and experienced and it shows. She is truly empathetic, attentive, and actually offers helpful suggestions instead of just saying "How do you feel? Or what do you think?" She has been exceptionally helpful to me in addressing current trauma, relationship issues, parenting, anxiety, and career/life decisions. I feel such a sigh of relieve when I log onto my sessions with her. 100% recommend.

E.M.·Jul 20, 2022


I’ve only had one session with her but she seems so sweet and her passion for helping people makes me very comfortable sharing my life with her!

R.O.·Jul 19, 2022


I know I dont have much time w her, but she helps me understand what I’m going thru and the possibilities of the reason why. Of course haven’t gotten too into depth of things but she’s focusing on the main concerns and I appreciate that. I also LOVE that she responds to me in a timely manner. And you can tell she takes her time to read anything I may message her. I’m thankful for her.

L.A.·Jul 18, 2022


Amanda is a very helpful, genuinely caring person who has an amazing gift for helping people.

H.E.·Jun 16, 2022


Amanda is helping work through multiple issues. She listens and offers input. She let's you lead the session. You start where you need to. I highly recommend her!
