About

Dr. Amanda Craig, PhD, LMFT owns and operates Manhattan Marriage and Family Therapy, a private practice based in Manhattan, NY and MMFT Connecticut, located in Darien CT. She also provides services to individuals and organizations as a clinical supervisor, consultant, and group/training facilitator in the Fairfield County CT area. Dr. Craig works primarily with family anxiety, depression, and addiction, as well as couples experiencing conflict, disconnection, infidelity, and contemplating divorce. Her style of therapy is strength-based and solution-focused, with an emphasis on having emotional awareness and understanding behavioral patterns.

She has dedicated much of her career to studying and understanding the root causes and lifestyle choices that lead to family discord, substance abuse, and other self-destructive behaviors. Dr. Craig believes that creating work, family, and lifestyle harmony is the key to prevention. By addressing the mounting pressures that cause individuals to seek respite in unhealthy life choices, she has helped many to reduce the risk of relapse, repair familial relationships, rekindle marital connection and help heal old wounds.

She also offers solution and emotionally focused couples and family therapy. No type of therapy can be more vulnerable, intense, or rewarding than family therapy! Instead of singling out one family member as the problem person or instigator, this approach invites collaboration, an honest look at how everyone in the family is contributing to the situation, and what we can learn and do to implement and progress change together. This is extremely empowering, change oriented and builds / rebuilds strong families.
Dr. Amanda Craig has worked in a variety of settings, including research departments, juvenile corrections facilities, high schools, fortune 500 companies, substance abuse programs, and university/college classrooms. She has administered counseling and therapy services to adolescents, adults, couples, and families.
