Amanda Draxler


In my counseling practice, I take a collaborative and eclectic approach. I believe that everyone is unique and has the power to change and I see my role as helping clients become aware of and utilize that power. I employ techniques from Cognitive Behavioral Therapy to help clients dispute their internal thinking processes and encourage positive change. I also integrate approaches from Client-Centered, Family Systems, and Gestalt Therapy. When working with children and adolescents, I use art and play therapy techniques to help them explore and express themselves.

I specialize in working with individuals across the lifespan, including children, adolescents, couples, and adults. My areas of expertise include anxiety, depression, mood disorders, grief and loss, ADD, ADHD, trauma, self-esteem, behavioral difficulties in school and/or home, separation and divorce, and parenting. I believe that my compassionate approach allows clients to discover and utilize their own inner strengths to overcome challenges and achieve personal growth and empowerment.

I am a Licensed Professional Counselor with over 12 years of experience in the mental health field. I hold a Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology with a minor in Sociology from UW-Stevens Point, and a Master’s Degree in Professional Counseling-Clinical Mental Health from UW-Oshkosh.

In my personal life, I enjoy spending time with my family, being outside, reading, and baking. These activities also inspire my counseling practice, reminding me of the importance of connection, self-care, and personal growth, which I integrate into my work with clients.
