Amanda Beyland

Licensed Clinical Social Worker

Amanda is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker. She has called Alexandria home for most of her life. Her ideal vacation is a week at the beach with a good book (or six).  She enjoys cooking and baking to gift treats to her friends and family. Although she does not have her own dog, she is an enthusiastic puppy aunt! In her free time, you might find Amanda reading or catching up with her friends.

Amanda completed her undergraduate degree in Social Work along with minors in Family Studies and Criminal Justice at James Madison University in Harrisonburg, VA. She is a proud Duke Dog alumnus and followed her time at JMU by earning a Master’s degree in Social Work from VCU.

In addition to her time spent at the Wise Family, Amanda works within the local school systems as a school social worker. She also provides supervision for individuals working towards becoming licensed clinical social workers. Prior to joining the Wise Family, Amanda worked as a Therapeutic Day Treatment Counselor in an elementary school setting.
