Individual Therapy for Life Transitions

Change in life doesn’t have to throw you off course.

Life is shockingly full of challenging changes to navigate. It’s nearly guaranteed that there will be changes throughout life that you will need to manage. It might be graduating from school, starting a new career, or starting a family. It could be getting married or getting divorced, retiring, or a change in the status quo. Some transitions are planned, and many are sudden and happen without warning. No matter if transition is a positive or negative experience, they can be difficult.

Transitions often require us to change how we have been living our lives. Transitions can leave us feeling isolated, withdrawn, angry, and sad. It might lead to anxiety about what is yet to come or whether we’ve made the right decision. Transitions can also be a form of loss, eliciting feelings of grief or longing for what once was.

How we can help

Therapy can help you walk through the experience while gaining the necessary tools to support yourself along the way.

Can you imagine navigating through a transition without feeling like your life is being throw off course? You’re able to manage responsibilities of everyday life while also acknowledging and leaving space for the transition you’re experiencing. You have the tools needed to take care of yourself through a time of great change. When you’re ready to walk towards the changes happening in your life, know that you don’t have to walk through the change alone.

Hi, I'm Dr. Amanda Mead,
licensed clinical psychologist

You have already taken the first step in seeking help - Congratulations! Let me help you the rest of the way.

I know personally how vulnerable it can feel. That’s why I bring optimism, hope, perseverance, and compassion to my clinical work and will walk alongside you in your journey to greater insight, self-awareness, and growth.

I am currently accepting new clients, so when you are ready, request a free 15-minute consultation to see if we would be a good fit to work together!

How to get started

Step 1:

Request an Appointment

In order for us to get a greater sense of what you are looking for in treatment, what treatment might be best, and whether there might be a good therapeutic fit between your unique needs and the services our practice provides, we need you to complete an intake questionnaire. You can request an appointment here.

Step 2:

15 Minute Free Consultation

Sometimes it is useful for us to talk on the phone to discuss therapeutic fit, to better understand specific clinical needs, and to help with the intake process. Other times, this is not required and we can skip right to step three.

Step 3:

Intake Paperwork

In order to accept any new clients, a series of paperwork must be completed, including things like a: consent form, emergency contacts, a financial agreement, etc.

Step 4:

Clinical Intake

A comprehensive clinical intake session is where a thorough history and background is collected about the person being evaluated and the various factors that may contribute to their presenting problem/reason for the assessment. 

Things can get better.

“Light precedes every transition. Whether at the end of a tunnel, through a crack in the door or the flash of an idea, it is always there, heralding a new beginning.”

— Theresa Tsalaky

Some things you may want to understand

We are not currently accepting insurance as it is our preference to invest our time and attention to clients, as opposed to negotiating with insurance companies. This provides far greater flexibility in care and allows clinicians to meet clients’ needs first rather than the rigid, impersonal, and often arbitrary expectations set by insurance companies.

Depending on your personal preferences and insurance plan, you may still be able to use your insurance provider to pursue full or partial reimbursement for our services as an “out-of-network provider”. ‍

If you have a PPO plan, you may be eligible to get 60-80% of each session reimbursed after you meet your deductible.

We are a self-pay practice and the rate for psychotherapy is $238 per session, billed to the client at the time of service. We accept most debit and credit cards, as well as flexible spending account (FSA) and health savings account (HSA) cards.

The benefits of modern technology allow for individual therapy to be administered over encrypted video conferencing, providing added convenience and security, all from the comfort of home. We are currently offering 100% telepsychology services.

We are currently accepting new clients for 100% online telehealth appointments from anywhere in the following states: Alabama, Arizona, Arkansas, Colorado, Delaware, Georgia, Illinois, Kansas, Kentucky, Maine, Maryland, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, Nevada, New Jersey, New Hampshire, North Carolina, Ohio, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, Virginia, West Virginia, Washington DC, and Wisconsin

If you are ready to request an appointment, please fill out our intake request form. We assess straightforward factors like your demographic preferences and logistics such as scheduling. We also evaluate mental health history, prior experience in therapy, goals for treatment, and more.
