Amanda Villaveces, LMFT

Owner, Supervisor

I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapists in Louisville, KY in private practice and online via telehealth.


In 2012 I received my MS in Marriage, Family and Community Counseling at CSU Sacramento. Prior to that I attended the University of Arizona, where I earned a Bachelor's in Psychology and Art History.

Before moving to Louisville, I lived and worked in the San Francisco Bay Area teaching and counseling. During this time I had the opportunity to work with a diverse community and learn about a wide range of life experiences. Learning about other's experiences is one of my favorite things about being a therapist, and not to sound cheesy, but it's always an honor to go on this journey with you!

In 2015 I relocated to Louisville and began practicing at Northstar Counseling Center, before moving out on my own. In 2020 I started a side project called Mental Health Lou that serves as a community mental wellness hub (more on that here.)


In practice I take a creative and holistic approach to each client. From my work I have learned that often our mental health symptoms manifest both mentally and physically. In treatment I will explore how your daily habits, past experiences, sleep, nutrition and exercise factor in to your mental health. By taking this thorough approach I have seen my clients make fast and sustaining changes in their lives.

Insurance and Payment:

I accept: Humana, Aetna, Anthem and United plans as well as HSA/FSA cards. Private pay sliding scale options are also available $80-120 per hour.

*GOOD FAITH ESTIMATES available prior to services.


I have had success working with many different types of clients and work hard to create a therapeutic environment where you feel welcomed and heard. Clients have described me as compassionate, insightful and engaging. I also self describe as a gregarious introvert is who is often nerdy and sarcastic (but only when appropriate).
