Amber is passionate about supporting families with the belief that every individual cultivates their unique perspective of this world through the lens of their upbringing. Creating a healthy world starts at the root of each individual- their childhood experiences.
Understanding the impacts of adverse childhood experiences on the life span has been an influential focus of Amber’s studies, she works to integrate this trauma- informed care as a foundation to build upon cognitive behavioral, solutions focused, strengths-based, and person-centered techniques. Amber strives to provide each client with an individualized therapeutic experience tailored to meet their needs in the safety of a judgment free environment where every client feels heard and accepted.
