About these Clinics/Practices

Dr. Amanda Feinstein (she/her) is a licensed clinical psychologist specializing in the treatment of chronic pain and medical trauma in adolescents and young adults. She moved from Northern California to Atlanta, Georgia in June 2023. She was on faculty as an attending psychologist in the Pediatric Pain Management Clinic at Stanford University School of Medicine for 6 years, while maintaining a private practice serving patients in CA. She is now on staff part-time at Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta in the Pediatric Chronic Pain Clinic, and maintains a private psychology practice. Although physically located in Atlanta and licensed in GA, she also maintains the PSYPACT psychology license which allows her to serve patients via telehealth in 30+ states.

Dr. Feinstein’s research has historically focused on resilience factors in young people with chronic pain, as well as the unique challenges faced by adolescents and young adults with chronic pain, and healthcare transitions. She has recently begun partnering with colleagues at several institutions on EDS research focused on movement-based therapies. Clinically, she has a strong interest in providing psychological support and coping skills for adolescents and young adults with chronic pain in general, and specifically with EDS and HSDs. Her priority is providing a supportive and validating environment for her clients, given the pain and functional challenges faced by persons with EDS/HSDs, as well as the invalidation and stigma that many patients experience in their medical journey.
