Our Team


In 2013, I decided to open up my private practice, Amanda Landry, LMHC.  I had already been out of grad school for six years and I had been licensed for over three years.  I worked for an agency the whole time and never realized the world outside of agency work.  To me, having a 9-5, a steady paycheck and some interesting stories to tell was enough.  That is until I met with someone who was already running a successful practice.  It was at the time I realized I could work less hours, make more money and go back to doing what I went to school for.  Two years later, I am working less hours and making more money but I wanted to shift my business again.

It was during a supervision session with one of my supervisees that the shift occurred.  She mentioned wanting to start a private practice and I realized that how beneficial it would be for me to have my own space where I could help clinicians start and build their private practices.  I wanted to start working with registered interns who want to eventually be in private practice.  I wanted to give people I knew a chance to build what I did.  It was in the session many months ago that I truly made the decision to go for it and open my own office space.

Initially, I wanted to open Caring Therapists of Broward with a colleague and friend of mine.  After some thinking and discussion, we both decided it would be better for me to branch out on my own.  Later that week I signed my lease and within a couple of weeks the place was furnished and ready to go.  With that line, it sound very simple but furnishing the offices took a lot of time and effort and I’m grateful to everyone who helped out.

The other reason I opened my office was for me.  It was so much fun to go to Target, Ikea and Target again to pick out decorations.  It was so much fun getting the three therapists signed up.  It was so much fun getting everyone together and taking pictures.  It was so much fun sitting in my office, during my first session with a client and knowing that Caring Therapists of Broward had officially begun.

I decided to share this journey with all of you because I truly believe I was meant to do this.  And I truly believe each of you are meant to do something truly amazing in your life, you just need to follow your dreams, create solid vision and go for it!
