My approach to therapy is best described as compassionate, no-nonsense, get-out-of-your-own way therapy. I believe that every client is unique and my sessions are completely customized depending on the client's issues and goals. My therapeutic approach includes a distinct combination of evidenced-based treatment (DBT, ACT) mindfulness, Brainspotting and EMDR therapy and my personal touch. Many of my clients describe my therapy as "therapy for cynics, or therapy for women who don't like therapy," because of my non-traditional and fresh approach. I am also a yoga teacher, and incorporate holistic and mind-body based practices.

I specialize in working with women with addiction, trauma, eating disorders and mental health disorders (anxiety & depression) and their families. I see most of my clients for individual sessions, though I offer group therapy sessions and family sessions as well. I also work with parents of those struggling.

As a person in long-term recovery, from an addiction and eating disorder I know what it takes personally and professionally to maintain recovery from an addiction at a young age. I have built my practice to connect with and empower women with addictions, mental health disorders and trauma who typically dislike traditional therapy.

Amanda E. White - Therapy for Women's Groups

Women's Recovery Group

Therapy for women who dislike traditional group therapy. This group is for women with addiction who have between 30days - 3 years free from addictive behaviors. We focus on how to stay sober once we put down drugs or alcohol and specifically getting "emotionally sober". Includes relapse prevention skill building. For women who want a more intimate setting than traditional intensive outpatient group therapy.
