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
Shameless Sexuality for Women (10 week course)
Next session: TBA
Shameless Sexuality for Women is a 10 week course for women to get in touch with (or back in touch with) their sexuality. We will complete activities that help you analyze where you have shame around your sexuality, get in touch with your body and your pleasure, and practice good communication about sex. Each week there will be 3 short activities to complete at home, and our meeting time will be used for reflection on your experiences and explanations of the next week’s activities. This class is for anyone age 18+ who identifies as a woman. It is queer, trans, and alternative relationship model friendly. Get to know your sexual self a bit better, and connect with other women on shared experiences, challenges, and triumphs!
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.
