Amelia specializes in providing affirming teletherapy services for neurodivergent individuals who live in Ohio and Kentucky. Specifically, she focuses on supporting those who have experienced differences related to autism, ADHD, trauma, LGBTQIA+, trans and gender diverse persons, and diverse relationship structures. As someone with lived experience in several of these groups (Autistic, ADHD, bi/pan, trauma survivor), she is passionate about creating spaces to support and empower others within these communities.
Teletherapy is a specific way of providing therapy services through secure video, phone, and/or chat sessions. There are many benefits to teletherapy, including increasing access to services, reducing the need for transportation, increasing privacy, and reducing stigma about therapy. If you have access to a device with data or Wi-Fi and a camera, you can access our services from the comfort of your home.
Amelia believes that the practice of therapy needs to change to be more inclusive. To jump start these changes, she is dedicated to specific core values that guide her practice. First and most important, she believes that therapy is a non-judgmental space for healing. She believes that therapy needs to be centered around the neurodiversity paradigm. Therapy needs to respect our intersecting identities (gender, sexuality, relationships, race, ethnicity, ability, culture, religion, and more) and how these impact our experience with the world. Therapy needs to be individualized to each person, and should be affordable and easily accessible for all people. Lastly, therapy needs to go beyond our work in session to include advocacy, justice, and community support.
