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.
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.
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)
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]
"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."
“No one has been able to help me like she has”
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
