About

Amelia specializes in providing affirming teletherapy services for 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, she is passionate about creating spaces to support and empower others within these communities.

“Teletherapy” means that all services are provided over video or phone. There are many benefits to teletherapy, including making it easier to get help, reducing the need for transportation, increasing privacy, and reducing stigma about therapy. If you have a device with data/Wi-Fi and a camera, you can access our services from the comfort of your home.

Mission

Amelia is dedicated to core values that guide her practice. First and most important, she believes that therapy is a compassionate and non-judgmental space. 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 easy to access for all people. Lastly, therapy needs to go beyond our work in session to include advocacy, justice, and community support.

How to Get Started

The waitlist for neurodiversity affirming autism evaluations is closed until 10/17/2022. The waitlist for new therapy clients is closed, but referrals can be provided for other affirming providers. You can email Amelia at amelia@ameliaslama.com.
