Dr. Amanda G. Hecker MD

I come from a multicultural background of Caribbean and Irish descent and lived in Pembroke Pines for most of my childhood. Growing up, I enjoyed partaking in martial arts competitions, eventually earning my Black Belt. As a teenager, my sibling was diagnosed with a severe mental illness that opened my world to how mental health could impact someone’s life. On my journey to become a physician, I attended medical school at the University of Central Florida College of Medicine. After, I ventured to Charleston, South Carolina to complete my psychiatry residency. Missing home, I returned to south Florida to be closer to my family and join the wonderful practice of Boca Raton Psychiatry.

In my spare time, I enjoy watching movies, trying new restaurants, going to the beach, and spending time with my husband and three animal children. As a psychiatrist, I take pleasure in forming meaningful, long-lasting relationships. People typically describe me as compassionate, conscientious, open-minded, and a good listener.
