Amber utilizes a person-centered, individualized, strengths-based approach to help each client achieve their identified goals. She employs traditional talk therapy to support insight, transformation, wellness, and growth. Amber’s overall goal is to foster a safe place where the clinician and the client create a trusting therapeutic relationship. This relationship between client and therapist is the foundation of change and is where processing and the “work” happens in therapy.
Amber is dedicated to empowering people in reaching their fullest potential and improving their overall quality of life. Amber has experience in serving the needs of children, youth, families, and adults in private settings, school systems, hospitals, non-profits, and community mental health agencies. Her expertise and highest skill-set includes art therapy, social service, children and adolescents, and she is particularly passionate about supporting and advocating for LGBTQ+ unique needs, and rights.
Amber is also currently a student in training for a Body Positive Yoga Teacher certification. After completion of the program Amber will be a Registered Yoga Teacher (RYT-200). She can use this certification in a therapeutic setting by offering accessible, adaptive yoga movement practice, mindfulness, meditation, breathing techniques, and yogic philosophy supported by modern research to aid in healthy emotional processing. When utilizing yogic philosophy in therapy per clients needs and request, her focus will be intersectional feminism and social justice principles with a focus on marginalized communities.
Whether implementing traditional counseling, art therapy, or yoga, Amber operates from a body-positive, humanistic, trauma-informed perspective. She can practice all three clinical modalities, or a combination, during treatment depending on clients needs.
