Stephanie Amundson

Stephanie’s ideal client is someone who is willing to come to session and put in the hard work that therapy requires. Her ideal client’s issues and needs would stem from something personal or even an external circumstance from outside of their lives. What matters here is having courage and how her clients decide to deal with those issues and needs, because life can throw curve-balls. When clients get thrown these curve-balls it’s important to have goals, and Stephanie believes it’s important to acknowledge those issues, needs, and goals in a holistic form (by treating the body, mind, and spirit).

Stephanie believes it’s important to recognize the courage it takes to come to therapy and challenge oneself. She specializes in eating disorders and body image issues. She also has clinical interest and knowledge of working with clients with histories of trauma and PTSD, substance use, and domestic abuse/violence.

She works through a person centered lens and often integrate other types of therapy that she is skilled in when working with clients such as CBT, DBT, trauma focused, and narrative therapy, to help clients with their specific needs and goals.

She often works with individuals, teens and adolescents, and families, and she hopes to bring a sense of compassion, kindness, trust, and empathy when working with these clients.
