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 amanda.auchenpaugh@gmail.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: The New Bottoming/ The New Topping

By: Dosie Easton & Janet W. Hardy

You might like these books if:

-You've ever been interested in topping or bottoming but haven't known where to start

-Kink IS new to you

-Kink ISN'T new to you

-You want to explore a new side of your sexuality

Three decades ago, this book and its companion volume "The New Topping Book" began teaching tens of thousands of people the joyous arts of BDSM topping and bottoming - not just "how-to," but "why-to"... the insider details of emotional support and ethical interaction during kinky play. Since then, the growing popularity of BDSM, and the blossoming of the Internet as a source of information and connection, have created a whole new universe of possibilities for players. Now, the completely updated revised New Bottoming Book and New Topping Book give even more insights and ideas, updated for a new millennium, about how to be a successful, popular player! What the experts are saying "The only way I can think of to learn more about bottoming than Dossie Easton and Janet Hardy teach you in [The New Bottoming Book] is to go out and bottom for yourself" -William A. Henkin, Ph.D., co-author
