About

Amelia specializes in providing teletherapy services for neurodivergent individuals who live in Ohio and Kentucky. As someone who is diagnosed as autistic, she is passionate about creating spaces to support and empower other neurodivergent folks. Amelia is also passionate about supporting those who have experienced differences related to autism, ADHD, trauma, LGBTQIA+, trans and gender diverse persons, and diverse relationship structures through affirming therapy approaches.

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.

Our Mission

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.

How to Get Started

The waitlist for neurodiversity affirming autism evaluations will be closed until July 18th, 2022. The waitlist for new therapy clients is also closed, but referrals can be provided for other affirming providers. You can email Amelia at amelia@ameliaslama.com.
