Amanda Teixeira

Originally from right over the border in Attleboro, MA, my family and I have lived in Northern RI for about 3 years now. We love raising our growing family here. I'm a licensed therapist in RI and MA and currently do private practice therapy. Outside of work, we love to spend time exploring nearby parks, hiking trails, playing outside and keeping it pretty low key with spending time at home, watching movies, and having play dates with our friends.
