Amanda Auchenpaugh, LMSW
I graduated from UGA with my Bachelor’s degree in Social Work in 2012, and my Master’s degree in Social Work with a certificate in Marriage and Family Therapy in 2020. I am working towards licensure as a Clinical Social Worker and certification as a sex therapist, and am practicing under Dr. Kate Morrissey Stahl’s direction and clinical supervision.
I take a humanist and feminist approach to my practice. For me this means that all of us are intrinsically good and capable of growth and change, and that we all deserve equal rights. I am body-positive and LGBTQ+, polyamory, and kink friendly. I love expressive arts and often incorporate them into my practice.
I am most passionate about sex education and sexual freedom. I work with clients with a variety of needs, though I especially love to help clients work through sexual shame and repression in order to lead happier, more fulfilling lives. I view my job as the catalyst that helps my clients discover and grow the strength and potential they already possess. I want my clients to leave my practice feeling empowered with an increased sense of identity, self-esteem, and sense of peace.
I am currently seeing clients via telehealth. You can contact me at email@example.com

Sometimes words fail to express how we feel, but expressing our emotions is a vital part of a healthy emotional life. In Emotionally Expressive Dance, we will explore how to express different emotions through movement to music. The class requires ZERO dance experience or training, and will not involve learning choreography. We will practice getting in touch with our bodies and breath, using our bodies to sculpt our emotions, and offering short reflections to one another about what we experience.
This is the first time this class has been offered so we are all new at this and can create it together!
Please note: This is an educational class. It is not group therapy, and the facilitator will be unable to provide therapy during the class. If you would like referrals for therapy, the facilitator will be happy to provide them.

Book: "Yes Means Yes"
By: Jaclyn Friedman and Jessica Valenti
You might like this book if:
-You are passionate about sexual assault prevention
-Are a woman wanting to dismantle your ideas around sexual pleasure
-You live in a society that perpetuates rape culture (you do)
"This groundbreaking feminist classic dismantles the way we view rape in our culture and replaces it with a genuine understanding and respect for female sexual pleasure.
In the original edition, feminist, political, and activist writers alike presented their ideas for a paradigm shift from the “No Means No” model–and the result was the groundbreaking shift to today’s affirmative consent model (“Yes Means Yes,” as coined by this book).
With a timely new introduction, refreshed cover, and the timeless contributions of authors from Kate Harding to Jill Filipovic, Yes Means Yes brings to the table a dazzling variety of perspectives and experiences focused on the theory that educating all people to value female sexuality and pleasure leads to viewing women differently, and ending rape. Yes Means Yes has radical and far-reaching effects: from teaching men to treat women as collaborators and not conquests, encouraging men and women that women can enjoy sex instead of being shamed for it, and ultimately, that our children can inherit a world where rape is rare and swiftly punished." - Yes Means Yes
