Amanda Frudakis-Ruckel, LCSW

Founder/ Holistic Psychotherapist

Amanda has undergone extensive training in evidence-based practices for anxiety and stress relief, as well as mind-body therapies such as yoga for trauma and hypnosis for cancer pain.

Psychotherapy that fits you.

Selecting the right therapist shouldn't mark the end of your mental health care decisions. Your voice and agency play an important role in the process. I aim to take the mystery out of therapy. You will have a clear understanding of the rationale behind the available care options. You will always have the freedom to make choices that suit you.

A message to therapy and counseling seekers.

Are you struggling to recognize yourself in your own life? Maybe there's a significant event that has thrown everything off, or perhaps you've been so focused on one aspect of life for so long that you've forgotten who you are in the process. It happens! Regardless of the reason, your story doesn't quite fit anymore.

I'm here to help you see yourself in your story again. Therapy isn't only about talking—it's about digging deep and reconnecting with yourself. Together, we'll explore what makes you, you. I'll help you let go of what isn't serving you anymore. We'll sift through the stuff that's weighing you down and find out what truly matters to you.

Imagine waking up and making choices that feel right for you. I'm the guide to get you there.

This isn't your typical psychotherapy experience.  Person to Person Psychotherapy and counseling offers virtual therapy sessions wherever you are in New Jersey or New York. In-person sessions are offered in the Fall and Spring via walk-and-talk therapy.

Why telehealth?
Say goodbye to wasted commute time. Say hello to comfortable clothes, furry companions (if you have a pet), and scheduling flexibility, including on your lunch break.

Why Outdoor therapy?
Say goodby to the limits of the indoors. Say hello to bilateral movement, techniques to reduce stress, and the beautiful outdoors of Long Valley, New Jersey.


Person to Person Psychotherapy is with you, helping you to talk about, understand, and cope with life experiences.

True mental health care goes beyond addressing symptoms. It involves a holistic approach that considers the entire person and all the dynamic factors shaping an individual's experience. Amanda has you covered, offering therapy that is as, one-of-a-kind as you.
