Get to Know Me...

Welcome and thanks for visiting! 

My name is Amanda LeForte (she/her) and if you're here it means you're considering a really important and brave step in doing something for yourself. Starting therapy can be a scary and overwhelming process, and I am here to help make this part of your healing journey as un-scary as possible!

I have lived most of my life on unceded Syilx territory in Kelowna, British Columbia. I am now honoured to live, work, and play in Regina on Treaty 4 territory, traditional lands of the Nehiyawak, Nakota, Dakota, Lakota, and Saulteaux people, as well as the homeland of the Metis Nation. While I miss the mountains and glacier-fed lakes of my home, I have come to appreciate the living skies and vibrant fields of the prairies!

I am of mixed ancestry - Nlaka'pamux Nation on my mother's side and English settler ancestry on my father's side - and I am thankful for the gifts each side has given me. I deeply value my family, and when I'm not working I love spending time with my husband, our two children, and our fur babies. I love reading, listening to podcasts, and being outside. I am a beginner gardener, lover of the Vinyl Cafe, and live music enthusiast!

I did both my Bachelor of Social Work and Master of Social Work (clinical specialization) at UBC Okanagan, and I completed a Graduate Certificate in Values-Based Leadership at Royal Roads University.

I am a registered provider through NIHB and I can direct bill several insurance providers (check with me to see if you qualify for direct billing). Many other extended benefits plans cover therapy costs through reimbursement, please be sure to check with your insurer to find out about your coverage. 

If you have any questions or wish to connect prior to booking with me I would love to hear from you! Feel free to get in touch through the contact link or give me a call.
