Hi, I am Amanda Crusos and I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in the state of California. I also hold a LMSW for the state of Idaho where I attended Boise state University and Northwest Nazarene University. My own personal challenges and life experiences have lead me to this path of loving to work with adolescents and young adults. I Have worked with families, children, and adolescents in a variety of settings including as a teacher, a Diversion Officer for first time youth offenders, and now as a Mental Health Clinician where I have gained diverse experience in the field working with survivors of abuse and neglect at a domestic violence shelter, in nature as a Wilderness Therapist for adolescents and young adults, and as a mental health clinician for children and young adults in the foster care system. I also have experience with running School-based therapeutic groups for teens struggling with a variety of mental health challenges. I love spending time with my son and my pets, exploring new places, and escaping outdoors for quality family time.
I attended Boise State University receiving a Masters in Social Work and a Dispute Resolution Certificate. I also attended Northwest Nazarene University for my Masters program receiving a degree in Social Work with the specialization in clinical practice.
