AMANDA MORRISON, LMFT

Amanda Morrison, LMFT is a psychotherapist in private practice in San Francisco and Berkeley. Her work is oriented around helping people undo the effects of early childhood trauma, supporting them to live lives less controlled by the internalized critic, and helping them create healthier patterns in their relationship to self and others. Amanda’s style is warm and relational, while remaining firmly grounded in psychodynamic theories; primarily attachment theory, which privileges the importance of the relationship between therapist and client. She draws upon AEDP and somatics in her experiential work with her clients. She has been delighted by the power of AEDP to effect changes in people in ways previously unseen. Amanda’s background also includes training in Hakomi body-centered psychotherapy, Authentic Movement, Somatic Experiencing, Addiction Recovery, and Ecotherapy. For the past 11 years, Amanda has regularly taught Ecopsychology and other courses at CIIS.
