Amanda Jelinek has been a practicing psychologist since 2007. She received her undergraduate degree in psychology at the University of Texas at Austin and her master’s and doctorate degrees in clinical psychology at the University of Denver. As part of her doctorate work, she earned specialty minors in assessment and forensic psychology. She has served as the Director of the Texas Psychological Association’s Division of Forensic Practice. She has served the Georgetown area in private practice since 2011, and previously worked at the Central Texas Veterans Health Care System (VA), Colorado Assessment and Treatment Center, Regis University, and Catholic Charities.
Amanda’s approach to therapy is based on several therapeutic models, including Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Cognitive Behavioral (CBT), and Relational. She uses a collaborative, goal directed approach, meaning that you will work with her together to identify your specific treatment goals and regularly evaluate how well therapy is helping you to reach those goals. An individualized plan is developed based on your unique needs; there are no “cookie cutter” approaches. Amanda enjoys working with individuals of various backgrounds, ethnicities, sexual orientations, and religious beliefs.
