Amanda Chenkin, LCPC, NCC (she/her)

As a counselor and career coach, my style is direct and compassionate as I both support and challenge you on your growth journey.

With a counseling background, I will help you to lean into the challenges that may be keeping you from building your most meaningful pathway in life. Your challenges are your opportunities! Combining coaching and counseling, I will be there to help you identify these opportunities and to navigate both seen and unseen obstacles along the way.

My very first job out of college was at a staffing firm. It was there that I discovered my talent for coaching people on how to tell their stories in a way that connected them to hiring managers and, most importantly, got them hired. In the nearly 20 years since that first job, I have continued to partner with those who are working towards a better life for themselves and their families. It has been an honor to walk alongside them as they discover meaning and purpose and create their unique paths.

After returning from U.S. Peace Corps service in 2009, I discovered my passion for career counseling while working with adults with disabilities. I deepened my commitment to this work by graduating in 2015 with my Master’s Degree in Education and Human Resource Studies, specializing in Counseling and Career Development. Additionally, I am a Certified Career Counselor and a Gallup-Certified Strengths Coach. I am an active member of the National Career Development Association and the American Counseling Association.

I'm Passionate About:

Career Development

Since the earliest days of my career, I have loved walking alongside people in their career journeys because I have seen the ways that work can both traumatize us and give us opportunities to heal.

Equitable Workplaces

I am passionate about helping organizations and individuals recognize and begin to dismantle the systems that continue to oppress while building spaces where all truly feel welcomed and respected.

Work/Life Integration

Work, home, family, health, leisure—all of these things impact one another, and it can be easy to feel off-balance, overwhelmed, or like something has to give. I'm here to help you recalibrate, so that you can feel confident and fulfilled in all the meaningful realms of your life. 

I love chatting about the above issues as well as many others that exist in the fusion between work and mental health. Want to listen to me chat with other experts about these issues and more? Head on over to my blog. Want me to come on your podcast or talk to your group? Contact me to connect.

Are We the Right Match?

I love helping my clients find their voice and have the confidence to use it—both at home and in the office.

You’re Ready to Grow

You have been trying to do things on your own and still feel stuck. You know you will benefit from having someone ask questions (in a non-judgemental, supportive way) that make you think and process the feelings and beliefs that come with those thoughts

You’re Ready to Invest

You know that investing in yourself is true self-care and that if you invest in yourself, you can be the person you want to be to the important people in your life. Investing in yourself is putting your oxygen mask on first so that you can become the person you want to be for yourself and others.

You’re Committed

We are committed to you and ask that you be equally committed. Commitment in this space looks like showing up as your whole self (or at least trying) and doing the hard work. It means being prepared for sessions and doing work between sessions. In return, we commit to showing up as our whole selves and being open to feedback.
