We all have things that have happened to us that leave a lasting effect for better or worse, and sometimes we need some help overcoming those things. As a therapist, Amber looks to assist her clients with navigating the present, while healing from the past, to prepare for a better future. Through Teletherapy, Amber creates a warm, non-judgmental space to help her clients overcome their presenting issues. 

Amber has been trained in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Structural Family Therapy, and Attachment Therapy. Prior to outpatient therapy, Amber worked with kids in foster care and in the residential setting with significant trauma and mood disorders. Her experience includes working with clients dealing with grief, addiction, mood disorders, personality disorders, couples counseling, as well as complex trauma. Amber has a passion to help individuals who have experienced significant trauma find a new outlook on life. 

One of Amber’s favorite quotes is: 

“We delight in the beauty of the butterfly, but rarely admit the changes it has gone through to achieve that beauty”. -Maya Angelou
