About Amanda Babineau-LaRose

I believe that everyone experiences changes across the lifespan, which naturally leads them to developing coping skills to overcome those challenges. However, there are times in everyone’s life, when for some reason, they are struggling to cope, and therefore they can benefit greatly from additional support. This is why I am passionate about supporting people who are committed to improving their lives. Leading a life of wellness can mean different things to each individual person, and I find this motivating in the work she does every day. I work with adults from ages 18 and older. I can connect personally with young adults, but also have almost 15 years of experience working with middle-aged adults and elders. I specialize in counseling related to depression, anxiety, aging, grief and loss, medical illness, and adjustment to changes across the lifespan. The combination of education in psychology and social work, along with years of experience providing care management in communities to connect clients to resources, allows me to bring a unique array of skills with the support and counseling I provide.
