Amanda Peclat-Begin is a current Masters student in the Clinical Mental Health Counseling program at Adler University. She received her B.S. in Psychology and her B.A. in Theatre at the University of Georgia. She believes that therapy is a unique experience to the individual and seeks to collaborate and meet clients where they are at with the tools and strengths they bring. Amanda is a huge proponent of the healing power of narrative, play, and drama in a compassionate and empathetic environment while utilizing a social justice, culturally responsive, and trauma-informed approach.


Her past research and internship experiences have had her working with a variety of people from an array of demographics, countries, and all walks of life, but she especially loves working with children and adolescents in a setting where they are free to express themselves, explore their feelings and identities, and any other goals they hope to achieve.
