Amanda Anderson, LMFT Owner/Therapist/Supervisor
“As a member of the Oshkosh community, ensuring that people get quality therapy is a primary goal for me. I want people to know that when they come to see me, I am fully present with them. Regardless of what activities we engage in: EMDR, play therapy, or sex therapy (just to name a few) my focus is on them and where they are in the process of dealing with what brings them to therapy.”
“I have been married since 2010 to a supportive partner. When the weather permits, I enjoy bicycling, going for walks, going for motorcycle rides, and just being outside. When the weather does not permit being outdoors, I enjoy cooking, baking, and playing video and computer games.”

“I am excited to be joining the OMFTC team! I grew up in Northeast Wisconsin, so helping people from this area is close to my heart. My desire to become a therapist was sparked from the help I received as a therapy client. This journey to improve my mental health has taught me that helping others in a similar way can be very rewarding. When people come to see me they will have my full attention. Your goals are my goals for you, nothing more/nothing less. I will lean on my supervisor and school advisors to ensure that I am doing everything I can to help. In my personal life, I am lucky to have three amazing children. Their names are Brooklyn, Ella, and Ty. I also have a loving dog named Gypsy. I like going to the gym. I enjoy watching the Packers, Brewers, Bucks, and Badgers play. I also enjoy a good movie on Netflix.”
Sarah Kimmes, Social Worker Intern, Western New Mexico University
I’m beyond excited to join OMFTC this summer. I graduated from UW Oshkosh with a Bachelor’s degree in Social Work and am now near the end of my Master of Social Work program. I enjoy meeting people where they’re at in life; we all face trials at different times and in different ways.
My focus is to provide a safe space for you to share your story, so we can work through the challenges that life presents together. Making the decision to see a therapist is a big step and I consider it a privilege to walk alongside you in this process. With the support of my advisors and the supervision of Amanda, I’m confident we will offer the best possible care through a combined approach.
When I am not in the office, you will find me working on DIY projects, watching Netflix, or hanging out with my 4-year-old Golden Retriever mix. Summer is my favorite time of year and I spend as much time as possible outside soaking up the sun.
