Meet Your Therapist

  

Welcome! 

I’m Amanda Plumb, a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) specializing in helping individuals navigate anxiety, panic attacks, social anxiety, depression, dating, relationships, career, as well as,  life transitions such as adulthood, college,  career, marriage, divorce. 


I enjoy helping  individuals find their strengths, freedom and healing be their best selves, rather than who the culture says they should be. I have served patients in the Virginia Beach and Chesapeake area for the past eight years, and built my practice on trust, wise and pragmatic counsel, and professionalism.


Haven has been a longtime dream of mine that came to fruition in 2017. My goal is to create an emotionally safe and private environment for individuals to work through past hurts, find freedom from ongoing struggles, grow in their true self, and thrive in their lives and relationships. 


I believe trust is built through genuine honesty and authenticity, and my counseling style is person-centered, non judgmental, warm, engaging, conversational and collaborative. I’m an encourager by nature; not one to pass judgment, nor one to please. I enjoy walking alongside my patients and empowering them to make healthy decisions for themselves.


Life will most certainly involve ups and downs and, whether proactively approaching challenges or treating them as they occur, I make my best effort to put patients at ease while providing direction to empower them to withstand any of life’s transitions. I work with patients to pursue a course of action based on their personality and fundamental values.
