Schedule: Monday - Friday

Counseling Approach: I have worked as a professional counselor for almost 40 years. During that time I worked as a Family and Marriage counselor for close to 20 years before coming to Concordia to start up our Counseling Center. I have a cognitive behavioral approach to helping others. As a called Lay Minister I enjoy integrating faith and God’s Word into the counseling process when a student desires that perspective. I believe that helping students experience God’s mercy and grace is an integral part of guiding them through the challenges and adversities that they face. I believe that I provide a safe and confidential setting in which students can anticipate making progress with their presenting concerns.

Counseling Approach: I have been a practicing counselor since 1992. My career has included work in public and private mental health settings, with children, adults, families, and couples. I draw on various treatment approaches, including cognitive-behavioral and psychodynamic psychotherapy.

Counseling Approach: I am completing my MS in Professional Counseling as an intern in the ʰФ Counseling Center, and I also serve as a life coach and graduate admissions counselor on campus. After earning my bachelor’s degree in communication (interpersonal/organizational/intercultural) from UW-Milwaukee, I took time off from school to get married and raise a family, which includes my five children, ages 12-20. Life is also a great teacher, as I have experienced many aspects of life stage development, relationships, and family dynamics along the way. I look forward to helping those with issues related to: dating and other relationships, conflict management, time management, grief, goal setting, career exploration, holistic health (mind/body/spirit), and development of self-concept.

Amanda Dahlman, MA, LPC-IT, NCC

Schedule: Thursdays and Fridays 10am-2pm

Counseling Approach: I believe that honesty, honor, and respect are all central to the counseling process. I believe that by fostering a safe environment, growth, change, and healing can take place. My hope is that each person will leave my office feeling valued and empowered to work towards their goals. My approach is client-centered, strengths-based, faith-based, and incorporates tools from cognitive behavioral therapy. However, my utmost priority is understanding the person in front of me and adjusting my interventions to suit their unique needs. Due to having an extensive sports background, I enjoy counseling athletes.  I earned second-team all-state in high school volleyball and competed at the NCAA Division III level in volleyball. I recognize that sports can take a toll on an athlete’s mental health. Therefore, I am devoted to creating a safe space for athletes to understand that their mental health is just as important as their physical health. 

Specialty Areas: depression/anxiety, sports performance, faith and spirituality, trauma
