Amber believes it is the experiences of our past that make up our present and influence our future. Through these experiences, we fashion our own individual stories. Amber strives to help clients freely and openly unpack those stories throughout the therapeutic process. She walks alongside each individual to empower them to experience healing and growth in their present and seek hope for their future. Amber warmly encourages her clients to learn how to embrace the discomfort that life sometimes creates and to remember the importance of giving ourselves “grace.” She utilizes curiosity, authenticity, humor, person-centered and cognitive behavioral therapy techniques, and a psychodynamic perspective as appropriate to fit each client’s individual needs. Amber is specifically passionate about working with new mamas adjusting to pregnancy and/or parenthood. Amber has completed the PSI and 2020 Mom Professional Maternal Mental Health Certificate Training. Additionally, Amber has special training and interest in implementing a trauma-focused lens utilizing Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT) and Accelerated Resolution Therapy (ART) . She looks forward to the opportunity to walk alongside you in this therapeutic journey.
