Amy Steinhauer is not currently accepting new clients.
I am an experienced therapist providing specialist care in the areas of sex therapy, couple/relationship therapy, and trauma treatment, including sex therapy for trauma survivors. I draw from several approaches to therapy, depending on the needs of my clients. But what centrally defines my approach is the relational perspective. I have come to value relationships as integrally important to healing: partner, family, and friend relationships, as well as a good quality therapeutic relationship. My approach is active, direct, and empathic. I understand that coming to therapy is a vulnerable experience, and I will be in it with you.
Part of my role is working to understand and 'get' you: what your values are, what works for you, how you best function. I assume and celebrate differences and want to collaboratively develop a treatment plan that deeply honors who you are.
I work from a stance of curiosity and respect to cultivate a safe environment for sensitive therapeutic work. Please see my website, linked on this profile, for further information on my practice and to get a feel for my style.
