Amanda Czlapinski, LPC

Amanda Czlapinski, Therapist, Inner Courage Counseling

Navigating and coping with the challenges of life and all of the emotions that come with it can be hard and most of us were never really taught how to do it effectively. We are often just expected to figure it out as we go, learning by example and through experience. It can leave us feeling stuck, alone, and unsatisfied. People often reach out for counseling services because they want something in their life to be different and they are struggling to figure out how to make that happen.

I believe my role is to provide a safe, supportive environment for personal growth as well as to share the techniques and concepts that I have learned to help you achieve your goals. I approach therapy with a focus on empathy, honesty, and trust. I am not an expert on you or your life and I won’t pretend to be; but I genuinely want to learn about who you are and your experience.  I consider the quality of the therapeutic relationship to be what truly drives progress. I also believe that behind our most present concerns we are all ultimately searching for purpose and meaning in our lives and our values are our compass for navigating a more meaningful life. I am passionate about empowering clients by helping them to recognize their own strengths and values and I encourage you to take pride in your decision to improve the quality of your life by taking responsibility for your own mental health.

I have experience helping individuals ranging from adolescents to older adults with a variety of concerns such as anxiety, depression, adjustment, identity, relationships, trauma, chronic illness, and loss. I utilize evidence-based treatments such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), Rational Emotive Behavior Therapy (REBT), and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) to guide the process of helping you reach your goals.

"When getting in touch with someone to find a therapist I was emailed by Stacy Ramirez, she was very kind and helpful which was appreciated because I have never seen a therapist so I was unsure of the process. I had my first session with Beth Halterman, she made sure to introduce herself before the first session which i thought was very sweet because I was a bit nervous about seeking a therapist to begin with and seeing someone face to face for the first time without having ever spoken before would have made me a bit more nervous."

"Inner Courage Counseling has a lovely building that's warm and clean. My counselor was so good that when she started at Inner Courage I moved practices so I could stay with her. I would absolutely recommended them to anyone seeking counseling."

"I have always been hesitant about counseling especially when it involves my daughter. But I have to say Brittany Roback is absolutely amazing. My daughter has been seeing Brittany for about 6 months now and I have seen great improvements. Just after the first session I saw my daughter using skills Brittany had shown her. Brittany has always made sure to make my daughter and myself feel comfortable. My daughter sees it as a safe place when she sees Brittany."

"Inner Courage Counseling has really been there for me from the moment I first called and they continue to be. I have always struggled to find a counselor that I mesh well with and one that creates an environment that I feel encouraged to dedicate time for myself. I’ve learned things about myself that I never knew before and I’m excited because I know I will continue to. I truly feel like I am growing in a positive way after each session. That’s both exciting and encouraging for me."
