Amanda Roach, LMSW

Philosophy of Care

Amanda is a Licensed Social Worker with over 10 years of experience working with youth, teenagers, and families, as a school social worker, intervention specialist, and as a home-based therapist. Amanda is experienced and passionate about working with those struggling with anxiety, depression, ADHD, borderline personality disorder, conduct disorder, trauma, self-harm, LGBTQ+ issues, complex family dynamics, adoption/foster care, and behavior issues.

Amanda obtained her degrees at Western Michigan University where she fell in love with Southwest Michigan and made it her permanent home.  As a therapist, Amanda specializes in dialectical behavioral therapy, cognitive behavioral therapy, and behavior modification, while incorporating trauma informed principles and an understanding of the complex way our central nervous system effects our behaviors and thought patterns. Amanda is a great choice for individuals looking to learn skills to manage their mental health, parents who seek to gain a better understanding of their child’s behavior, and families who are looking to improve the overall health of their relationships and home environment.

Amanda understands that therapy is not an easy or even desirable choice for all that become involved, and that the most important thing is for individuals to have the chance to identify their own personal goals to improve their quality of life while participating in genuine, judgement-free therapy. Amanda excels at helping to navigate roadblocks that interfere with one’s progress both in and out of therapy, allowing progress to occur when it may have failed previously. This feeling of success is what drives Amanda and her clients to work hard to meet goals and see real change in their lives.

Megan Marie Dunne, LCSW

Philosophy of Care

We all need a little help sometimes. Therapy is a great tool to have to overcome life’s tough times. Are you new to therapy? Or someone who has seen a therapist before? Regardless of your previous experiences with therapy, I offer everyone a safe, private and professional experience. Together we will address your concerns and then plan and execute change. As far back as I can remember, I have always been concerned with other people’s happiness. As a child I knew that one day I would have a career in a “helping profession”. I graduated from Wayne State University in Detroit MI in 2006 with a master’s degree in social work, a minor in psychology and a solid foundation on treating people using Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT).
I have continued to grow in my profession over the years. I have 15 years of experience working not only as a therapist but also as a medical social worker. Implementing change, managing crisis’s and providing life changing resources in clinics, emergency rooms, and in medical wards across metro Detroit. My approach to therapy is a holistic one. I provide support and feedback to assist clients as they address their personal life challenges. I believe in empowering clients to build on their strengths to obtain personal growth. As a holistic mental health clinician, I am passionate about assisting others through life issues and stress so they can grow and heal in mind, body and spirit.
If you need guidance and support, I offer a safe healing space to work through difficulties. I strive to provide a comfortable, respectful and accepting therapeutic environment. Due to my vast professional history I am comfortable working with all populations and hope to work with you.

Philosophy of Care

Starr Bull graduated from Western Michigan University with a Master's in Couples, Marriage, and Family Therapy. She is a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) and a Limited Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist (LLMFT).

She has worked with many diverse clients including men, women, couples, and families in various settings. Her specialties include, but are not limited to, working with people in recovery, with relationship issues, pre-marital, anxiety, and depression.

Starr believes that life is full of transitions and challenges, and that counseling is a way to help navigate through those challenges in order to bring healing and growth. She uses a collaborative approach with her clients, and wants to include them in the process, as well as provide individualized techniques based on client needs. Her desire is to provide a non-judgmental, empathetic, and warm environment that gives clients hope, and empowers them to reach their goals.

She has been married for 20 years and has four children and two grandchildren. She is looking forward to being part of the Thriveworks family in the Kalamazoo area!
