Message from Amanda

    Kids and teens often have a tough time figuring out and talking about their complicated feelings. With all the schoolwork, navigating friendships, and spending a lot of time on devices, it’s common for them to feel stressed out, have trouble keeping their emotions in check, or struggle to navigate difficult life transitions.

    And parents often struggle with how to best support their child during this stressful time.

    I’m Amanda Cypret, a Licensed Mental Health Counselor and Registered Play Therapist-Supervisor at Silver River Counseling, and I understand how overwhelming it can be as a parent or caregiver.

    That’s why, for over a decade, I’ve helped children express themselves in a language they understand: play. Through personalized sessions, I use this powerful tool to connect with your child, identify their needs, and guide them on their path to healing.

    If you would like to get started with counseling here at Silver River, here’s how.

    First, click the ‘Schedule an Appointment’ button, then fill out the Intake Form.

    Second, we’ll reach out to you to schedule your child’s first visit.

    Finally, I’ll support you and your child on a path of healing and growth.

    If you’re ready to overcome barriers to your child’s emotional well-being and take the first step towards supporting your child’s mental health, schedule an appointment with us today.

    “Amanda takes great care in individualizing treatment for each client and helps them reach personal goals. She brings knowledge, compassion and empathy to the therapeutic space and is always going to encourage people she comes in contact with.”
