Amanda and Mary Ann met in graduate school back in the fall of 2010 and quickly realized they were the perfect counseling pair. They’re both relaxed and laid back enough to be able to laugh at themselves but also driven overachievers with a significant dose of compassion who believe strongly in helping people the best way possible. With a deep rooted friendship, staunch esteem for one another, and true belief that wherever one may be weak the other is strong, they decided to make their dream a reality in establishing Roman & Sokolowski Counseling, PLLC.
Amanda’s Type A. Mary Ann’s Type B. A match made in collaboration heaven. Amanda loves helping with anxiety. Panic attacks don’t scare her. Mary Ann is a master with depression. Tell her you’re considering suicide and she won’t panic. Amanda can sit with you in your grief. She’s patient, soothing, calm and kindhearted. Mary Ann can guide you through whatever transition life has thrown your way. She’s tough, funny and encouraging. They’re both trained in trauma and sexual assault, having heard one too many stories from friends and clients alike, and together they’ve created a comprehensive approach to the rampant adolescent self-harming epidemic as well as a hybrid, collaborative program for working through whatever your trauma experience may be.
Mary Ann and Amanda both saw a need for quality and easily accessible counseling in the downtown and greater Nashville area. Nashville has seen an explosion of growth and the number of people living downtown has grown from 2,280 in 2006 to a projected 12,402 by the end of 2017. Cranes have become a staple in our skyline yet the condo occupancy rate has remained at a steady 97% for the past five years. As our city evolves and changes, so do our lives and needs. No longer is it feasible to commute 30+ minutes to the suburbs to visit a counselor. This is why we put our roots down in the Gulch. Plus, we love this area. The energy is unmatched and where else do you have quirky shops, bluegrass music, local coffee (which keeps us running) and delicious food all within walking distance?
Our vision is to be the preeminent counseling organization for the downtown and greater Nashville area. We aim to excel in providing quality, cutting-edge counseling services for the treatment of trauma, sexual assault, anxiety, depression, grief, self-harm and the full spectrum of mental health concerns. We believe in treating all mental health concerns holistically, knowing that the mind-body- spirit are interconnected and that true health comes from knowing and treating the root cause of dysfunction. We work tirelessly to implement evidence-based and innovative work, believing that all clients deserve our best.
Counseling in the Gulch with special interest in work/life balance, anxiety, grief, and lives affected by suicide attempt, or have lost to suicide.
