Amanda Callen, MA, MFT

Amanda Callen is a Marriage and Family Therapist licensed to practice in the state of Ohio. Amanda completed her Marriage and Family Therapy Master’s Degree through Syracuse University. Amanda has done additional training in Exposure Response Therapy for treating adults and children with Obsessive Compulsive Disorder and SPACE (Supportive Parenting for Anxious Childhood Emotions) for helping families support children struggling with anxiety.

 Amanda’s previous Master’s Degree was in School Counseling. After completing that degree, she became the Program Director with Brooke’s Place in Indianapolis, Indiana where she provided support services for grieving children and families. This was her first experience caring for couples and entire families and it propelled her towards pursing her MFT degree and license.

 Amanda is known for providing high quality, compassionate care to children, teens, adults, couples and entire families. Her clients appreciate the expertise she brings and testify to the difference she has made in their lives. One of Amanda’s core beliefs as a therapist is that every individual, couple, or family - given a little bit of professional help -  can work to overcome even longstanding patterns and struggles and step into more fulfilling relationships and life. She considers it an honor to be a part of this process for clients.

 Amanda charges $200 per hour. She sees clients both in-person and through telehealth. She is currently practicing under the supervision of Erin Schaefer, IMFT-S as she works toward her independent license in Marriage and Family Therapy.

 In Amanda’s own words, “As a therapist, I have always listened closely to the stories my clients tell. Sometimes they tell themselves a story and sometimes they tell their stories to others. As humans, these narratives can shape our perspectives on our current situation, relationships, and concerns.

My favorite part of therapy is cultivating a safe environment that allows people to step back from the situation that brings them into therapy.  In this space, together we can work to see new creative solutions and ways to change the direction that their story is currently headed. With a bit of guidance and some new tools, my clients are able to overcome their concerns, feeling empowered to move through life successfully with thriving relationships. I consider it an honor to be in this process within my clients.”
