What I Love about NPA

By Amanda Hintz, MSLP

I love working at NPA because we have a wonderful staff that get along so well–we are like a family. Our offices are welcoming and comfortable, which put our clients at ease.

Promoting mental health in children is one of the most rewarding aspects of my work. I enjoy helping children learn to manage their anxiety, work through their trauma, and express their emotions in healthy ways. This is so meaningful to me because I know that if children learn these skills early on, they will struggle much less as teenagers and adults. Also, they will have a sense of self confidence, strengthening their ability to handle the tough things in life.
