COVID-19 UPDATE:  During this challenging time we are happy to offer remote phone & video sessions with HIPPA compliant software.

We are a Philadelphia based therapy group offering therapy services in person and online to help women get out of their own way and find freedom.

Learn to break free from negative patterns that are keeping you stuck.

You deserve to live an incredible life.

Substance Abuse:

Whether you just got our of rehab or are looking to reevaluate your relationship with alcohol or other substances, we personally know what its like to struggle with addiction and are ready to help. We treat substance use disorders from a holistic and individual approach. There are many ways to recover and we are here to help you find the path that works best for you and your life. You don't need to struggle or worry about your drinking habits, there is hope!

Trauma:

All our clinicians are trauma-informed, meaning that we understand that trauma in this day and age means a lot more than just physical, emotional or sexual abuse. We understand that trauma is not always about the event that happened to you, but how it impacts your body and your life. Regardless of what you have or have not been through, we are here to help you work through your past experiences that are keeping you stuck. Through revolutionary techniques like EMDR and Brainspotting, hope and change is possible!

Anxiety:

Unlike regular worries, anxiety manifests when your racing thoughts and concerns prevent you from living your life and accomplishing things that are important to you. It can be debilitating and we want you to know, you are not alone! Our clinicians know what its like to struggle with chronic anxiety and will give you the tools and coping skills to break free from your negative and intrusive thought patterns and start living a life you love. We have a proven track record of helping women greatly reduce their symptoms, including panic attacks.

Depression:

Whether you are struggling to get out of bed in the morning or simply not enjoying your life the way you used to, depression can seriously impact your quality of life. Anxiety and depression often go hand in hand and we are experts at treating both. Depression often feels like you are stuck in a dark tunnel. We know what it's like to be where you are and we have the skills to help you navigate out of it and guide you into the light.

Eating Disorders:

Whether you are sick of dieting and looking to love yourself or are struggling with an eating disorder, you have come to the right place. We are proud Health at Every Size providers and believe FULL recovery from an eating disorder is possible. With therapists who are in recovery from eating disorders themselves, we believe that everyone deserves to live a life that is fulfilling and free from constantly worrying about your food or body.

As someone who has recovered from trauma, substance abuse, and an eating disorder - I know what is like to be where you are. I understand that women are often misdiagnosed or misunderstood because the symptoms of eating disorders, addiction, trauma and anxiety tend to overlap. I’ve made it my mission to team up with relatable therapists to provide compassionate, un-intimidating therapy that also provides you with real tools to create real change.

We believe women heal most effectively when they are treated as whole people, not as their diagnosis - that’s why we empower women through therapy, health, and wellness so they can move beyond their limiting beliefs and feel fulfilled.

I started therapy for women after working at mental health centers in the Philadelphia area and being frustrated with the lack of modern approaches to therapy.

I'm Amanda E. White.

Hello!

Where You've Seen Me:

We believe that healing happens best when you’re treated as a whole person - not a set of symptoms - that’s why our therapists specialize in a holistic approach that treats all of your overlapping issues.  We believe therapy is for everyone, regardless if you have a mental health diagnosis. 

We specialize in overlapping issues

Taking the first step in attending a therapy appointment is no easy feat - and that’s why we make all appointments as comfortable as possible. You’ll have the opportunity to learn more about your therapist prior to your appointment, and if you decide to do your sessions in our office - you’ll love the easygoing, relaxed vibe. (No old men recording notes about you in a basement)

Easy and unintimidating

We embrace technology to the fullest - because therapy shouldn’t be old-fashioned! We are proud to offer therapy both in person or via HIPPA compliant video sessions. When you are our client, you will also have your own private portal where you can make appointments, pay balances, and get access to statements for insurance. [view info on fees and insurance]

Therapy how and when you need it

We Believe In Doing Therapy Differently

"Working with Amanda has been an incredible experience. I’ve seen a variety of therapists for over a decade now, and no one has been able to help me like she has. It sounds corny, but she’s given me hope – hope that I can outgrow the patterns that aren’t serving me anymore, that I can find meaningful relationships with friends and family, that I can live without letting my addiction run my life."

TESTIMONIALS

Our Values

Therapy doesn’t need to be old school. Our practice is at the forefront of therapy techniques, methods, and technologies so we can best care for our clients. We are also active on social media because we believe in de-mistying and destigmatizing the process.

Innovation

01.

We believe the best therapists have lived experience in addition to professional credentials and expertise. We see ourselves as human beings first and therapists second, because true transformation starts when a genuine therapist-client connection is formed. Showing up authentically creates the safest space for our clients to heal, and we are transparent about the process of therapy, so that you can make informed decisions about your care.

Authenticity

02.

We believe that therapy is cool and, dare we say, even fun sometimes?  We cannot heal alone, which is why we have a strong social media presence, and host mental health events and workshops, so that you can find support and friends inside and outside of therapy.

Community

03.

As a practice that sees eating disorder clients, we are fiercely committed to weight inclusive care, which means we are fat positive and take a Health at Every Size approach. Although we have certain therapists that specialize in eating disorders, all our therapists are committed to providing body positive therapy. 

Anti-Diet

04.

We are committed to becoming an anti-racist oppressive  practice. We recognize that stereotypical therapy can be traumatic for those with marginalized identities, especially BIPOC individuals. Though we have therapists who specifically specialize in this, all our. therapists participate in anti-racism and cultural sensitivity training on an ongoing basis. 

Anti-racism

05.

We believe in sustainability and giving back to the community as much as possible. This looks like hosting free workshops, donating portions of workshop profits to local organizations, and providing clients (especially BIPOC individuals) with sliding scale slots so they have access to high quality therapy. We practice what we preach, which means we provide our therapists with above industry pay, benefits, and time off so they can best serve you.

Social Responsibility

06.

We value inclusivity of all individuals, especially those with marginalized identities. We value having therapists who have the lived experience of being a BIPOC and/or LGBTQ individual, enabling them to better serve our clients with those identities. We firmly believe trans men are men, trans women are women, and all genders are welcome at our practice regardless of the fact that we specialize in women. 

Inclusivity
