We believe the best therapy happens when you can create an authentic relationship with your therapist.

We take the intimidation out of therapy by only hiring therapists that have dealt with the mental health issues they specialize in. That means when you’re diving deep and confessing your inner-most battles and thoughts - you can trust your therapist ‘gets it’. 

“No matter why you go to Therapy for Women, these women WILL change your life.”

TESTIMONIAL

Meet Amanda E. White, MA, LPC

Founder and Lead Therapist

I promised myself if I ever made it to the other side, I would dedicate my life to helping other women find healing. 

While working with a therapist that’s also in recovery isn’t essential - I personally wasn’t able to make progress in my own treatment until I found someone who had been in my shoes.

I understand what it’s like to feel hopeless and lost, and what it takes to sit in an uncomfortable chair in a dark, gloomy basement and have an older man record notes about you, your struggles, and your worst decisions.

That’s why I’m here to make therapy different for you.

Therapy doesn’t have to feel stigmatized, old-fashioned or stuffy,  Whether you are at your breaking point or just need some guidance, we are here to provide a comfortable, authentic, and easy-going atmosphere for you to grow and feel fulfilled in your life.

Before I BECAME a therapist, I STRUGGLED WITH  ADDICTION, trauma, and an eating disorder.

Stephanie King, MA

After growing up with a sick parent and losing my dad in my early 20s, I know what it’s like to feel “lost”. Through working on my own mental health, I’ve learned how to navigate grief and face my anxiety. I’ve been there and I want you to know that together, we can work through your challenges. 

My approach to therapy is all about self compassion and connection. I’ll help you identify your strengths and learn resilience to face the challenges of life. I believe that life may not get *easier* for us, but you can get better at effectively dealing with it. We will explore your inner self with kindness and you will develop a positive internal dialogue. 

I am not just a sit and nod therapist. I use my training in dialectical behavioral therapy to teach coping skills and build a greater quality of life. I strongly believe that setting boundaries and learning to use self care can lead you to a happier, more peaceful you. I can't wait to work together.

THE GREATEST THING ABOUT BEING A THERAPIST:

Kathryn Nulf, MA, NCC

My passion is working with women* (*cisgender, transgender, nonbinary, genderqueer – I welcome you). I grew up emotionally sensitive and through therapy I learned tools that taught me how to move through the world in ways that embraced my sensitivity. I soon realized my sensitivity was actually my superpower. I love to help women feel this empowerment, too.

I came to therapy through healing from chronic pain and depression and an infinite curiosity for human behavior and a love for the complexity of people. I get what it’s like to feel up and down with your emotions, to get depressed or anxious and not know what to do, or even feel unsure of who you are. I have taught yoga for more than 10 years, and enjoy teaching my client's tools to regulate their emotions, communicate in ways they can feel good about, manage stress more effectively, and move toward what they want to do in your life.

I believe that people are doing the best they can and that we cannot shame ourselves into a better life.  I love to introduce clients to how they can practice compassion for themselves and create more meaning in their lives.

Childhood dream?

"She offers a fresh and modern view on therapy which involves empowering her clients to see the change in themselves."

“Amanda and Maddie are both fabulous. I've worked with Amanda for 2 years now and I can't recommend her enough. She offers a fresh and modern view on therapy which involves empowering her clients to see the change in themselves. She gives you literal tools to supplement what's talked about in session so you can go home and practice life skills. This step has been so crucial for my long-term recovery and emotional stability. She also checks in with you about things you talked about the previous week without having a notepad in front of her. She genuinely cares for each client. No matter why you go to Therapy for Women, these women WILL change your life. I really can't thank them enough.”

TESTIMONIALS

We Believe In Doing Therapy Differently

Therapy how and when you need it

Easy and unintimidating

We specialize in overlapping issues

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]

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 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.
