If you’re like most women I work with, you may be profoundly aware of why you got breast implants. You may want to free yourself from the ongoing trap of trying to “fix” how you feel on the inside by “fixing” how you look on the outside. Though you may want to give yourself a sense of belonging and acceptance, you may genuinely have no idea how.
And when you try to find help, most things focus on the physical side of breast implant removal.
This can leave you feeling unsupported with your difficult thoughts and painful feelings.
No matter where you are on your journey with breast implants, whether you are considering removing them “someday,” urgently need to remove them to restore your health, or adjusting to post-explant breasts, I’m here to help you find your way through.
• How to compassionately acknowledge your natural and ongoing drive to belong
• How to unhook yourself from whatever unhelpful beliefs you might hold around women, breasts, & belonging
• New ways to respond to your comparative thinking, self-judgment, negative self-talk, and the marketing that preys on your natural human desire to feel “good enough”
• On-the-go mindfulness practices so you learn to stay fully present and focus on problems that need your attention
• How to reconnect with and be guided by what matters most to you
• Ways to see beyond your breast-related self concept so you move through your journey with breast implants on your terms
I’m a clinical psychotherapist specializing in Acceptance & Commitment Therapy (ACT) to help women live with mindful self-acceptance and pursue values-guided change.
I know the physical, mental, and emotional drain of living with breast implants you eventually need to replace or remove. I had them for 12 years.
I've felt the inner pain and suffering of undiagnosed breast implant illness.
I know the panic of urgently needing to remove a ruptured breast implant.
And I know how hard it can be, on the inside, as you move toward explant.
That's why I want to share the science-based approaches I used, so you can also heal from the inside out through BRITE™ (Breast Implant Through Explant) Inner Healing.
And if you want to be in the driver’s seat on your journey with breast implants, I’ve got you covered.
My goal is to help you reclaim yourself from whatever thoughts and feelings push you around on the inside, and enable you to live the rest of your life with true self-acceptance.
If, like me and so many women, you learned a long time ago to live life from the outside in, constantly assessing how you measure up and looking for ways to “fix” you, then you may have no idea how to take care of yourself when inner pain shows up on your journey with breast implants and their removal.
I get it. I was in your exact shoes.
No matter what stage you're at in your journey, I can help you mindfully reconnect with the inside of YOU and skillfully find your way to true self-acceptance.
"Amanda is the first person with whom I could talk about the deep wounds from implants and explant in a way I knew she understood. She cared deeply for my pain, my trauma and lingering grief, and gave me new ways to move forward."

In less than a year of working together, Amanda gave me the greatest gift - how to develop and navigate life positively and mindfully. Amanda is by far the most approachable and professional resource I have worked with to achieve personal acceptance and clarity. Her sincere approach to helping me gave me comfort and confidence throughout my transformation.

To help you move through the distress of doing something that defies what you were told about breasts, I translated the evidence-based approaches from my private psychotherapy practice where I help women reclaim their minds and bodies from things that harm them, like adverse childhood experiences, grief and loss, people pleasing, empathy entrapment, anxiety, and self-acceptance deficits.
I created a practical, on-the-go, skill-based program called BRITE™ Inner Healing. It helps you navigate your breast implant through explant journey in a way that actually teaches you how to live with true self-acceptance.
BRITE™ Inner Companions is an agenda-free Facebook group for connecting with other women about the mental and emotional side of breast implants and their removal.
I provide prompts, tips, tools, and science-based information and perspective to help you along the way.
Whether you are considering breast implants, living with implants you eventually want or urgently need to remove, or have explanted and want to heal more fully from the inside out, you are welcome here.
