Amanda Lehrer
Ketamine Assisted Psychotherapy

With over 25 years of clinical expertise, I bring a wealth of experience and insight to the realm of behavioral health. My deep understanding of therapeutic resources is coupled with an unwavering compassion for individuals navigating complex behavioral health concerns. I don't merely listen; I immerse myself in your experience, fostering a profound therapeutic alliance.

In the clinical landscape, life often feels like a journey through uncharted territory. However, I firmly believe that 'not all who wander are lost.' Grounded in psychodynamic and relational principles, my therapeutic approach centers on the therapist-client relationship as the bedrock of transformational psychotherapy.

My educational foundation is rooted in a Master's degree in Social Work from Case Western Reserve University and a Bachelor's degree in Social Work from Mercyhurst University. I maintain the conviction that every life experience shapes an individual's current state, without necessarily dictating their lifelong trajectory. Guided by a strength-based perspective and informed by a trauma-informed lens, I engage collaboratively with you to navigate your unique therapeutic journey towards healing and personal growth.

I have a strong clinical affinity for working with diverse populations and a broad spectrum of clinical issues, encompassing areas such as LGBTQIA concerns and families grappling with psychological and associated behavioral challenges, among other clinically significant presentations.

Furthermore, my clinical toolkit includes a diverse range of evidence-based therapeutic modalities, including Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, which I adeptly employ as needed. As a certified Ketamine practitioner, I embrace an integrative harm reduction model, acknowledging the distinctive needs and challenges presented by each client. I stand as a fervent advocate for individuals grappling with mental health issues, bolstered by my proficiency in Internal Family Systems (IFS).

My inherent clinical aptitude lies in fostering alignment and rapport with clients, nurturing a genuine therapeutic partnership in your journey. I firmly believe in the transformative power of community and connection, essential components of personal growth. Together, we can embark on a path toward your well-being, enabling you to realize your fullest potential.
