About Therapists

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.”

Wisconsin Clinical License #1359-124

Tyler Van Zeeland, LMFT-IT Intern

“I am excited to have joined 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.”

Cynthia Mudd, Student Intern

“Moving to Wisconsin from the East Coast has been quite the transition. I have enjoyed doing clinical work in the in-home therapy sector and am looking forward to this new chance at working with individuals, couples, and families in an outpatient setting. I am enrolled in Abilene Christian University’s M.S. Marriage and Family Therapy Online Program. I am really looking forward to completing my education in 2023. In my free time, I have been volunteering with The Haiti Education Alliance, Inc. and have been president since 2010. I take a holistic approach to therapy, combining several different models of therapy, spirituality, and systemic principles/connections to enhance therapeutic success.”

Chris Carpenter, LMFT-IT Student Intern

“I grew around the Green Bay area and have since moved to western Wisconsin. I am grateful for the opportunity to work here at OMFTC and appreciate the flexibility it provides as my wife and I raise our little girl. My orientation for therapy is Solution-Focused and Narrative Family Therapy based. I really enjoy working with couples and navigating through their relationship. Therapy is us working collaboratively together to help you establish the goals for change you desire. That being said, I also enjoy working with families and individuals as well. I believe in being honest and creating a safe space for all who come to see me. I also enjoy working with the LGBTQ+ community as well as an advocate within this community. In my free time, I enjoy camping, playing volleyball, trying new hobbies, spending time with my family and two dogs, and volunteering with WAMFT.”

Erin Knipple, Student Intern

“I am a Master’s of Counseling student with Lakeland University (Fox Valley Campus). I have previously worked in education and nursing. I was an instructional aide for a local school district for the past 8 years, working primarily with teenagers with intellectual disabilities. Prior to that, I worked at a retirement home as a nursing assistant. As a student and future counselor, my ultimate goal is to help other people see their inherent dignity and merit, as well as to help them identify their strengths and reach their goals. It is my hope to provide a safe space within which others can feel seen, heard, and encouraged. I am married with three wonderful children. In my spare time, I enjoy anything that has to do with creativity: I love photography, drawing, painting, and writing poetry. I also enjoy riding my road bicycle and going on hikes in nature, preferably alone and with my camera in tow (but I’ve been known to bring my children along, too).”

Loretta Good, Student Intern

“I am a student at Northcentral University in their Marriage and Family Therapy master’s degree online program. I am specializing in therapy with children. I am a virtual student intern with Oshkosh Marriage and Family Therapy. I am a volunteer with the Wisconsin Association for Marriage and Family Therapy which I greatly enjoy as it gives back to the therapy community. I have a daughter and several cats who I greatly enjoy spending time with. My goal is for clients to feel I am not only a safe space for them to disclose their issues in, but also a space were judgment is not felt. I want everyone to feel my empathy towards their plight. I tend towards Narrative Family Therapy, but am also learning how to combine and integrate other theories of therapy such as Solution-Focused Therapy and Emotional-Focused Therapy, effectively and efficiently through the help of my supervisor. I look forward to meeting you and helping you through what brings you in.”

Purviben K. Trivedi-Ziemba, Student Intern

I am a student at Northcentral University in Marriage and Family Therapy Master’s degree Online Program. I have moved multiple times in my life- from India to the USA as a teen, then from the East coast to Southern USA, and finally to Wisconsin as a wife of a supportive partner. As someone who has had to pull up her roots multiple times, I am familiar with the uncertainty, need for support, restarting, and rebuilding from scratch. I am thankful for the opportunity to work here at OMFTC and appreciate the flexibility it provides. My goal is to work with individuals, couples, and families to foster healthy parent-child relationships by offering ways to improve family bonding, resolve trust issues, & developing effective yet simple communication strategies. When you are with me, you are the most important person deserving my full attention and respect. With a straightforward, honest, and empathetic approach, I will work with you to find the solutions that work best for you. I will lean on my supervisor and school advisor to make sure I am doing everything possible to help. Let us work together to make a difference in your relationship today. In my free time, I enjoy walking our dog, cooking, watching movies, knitting, and spending time with my family.
