I thank this woman every day for listening to me. In a world where I feel super exhausted and alone in my feelings, it feels good to have someone like amber to help and listen. She’s empathetic, genuine, not judgement and I feel like I’m talking to a friend rather than some stranger.
Amber is lovely. She is an amazing listener, super non judgemental and was really able to provide me with interesting takes on my experiences. She also made a point to provide actionable exercises for me after each of my sessions. My time with amber has been hugely helpful:)
Amber works with empathy and care, in a way that is both understanding and supportive. I am grateful for having been placed with her through this site, and consider myself lucky.
In only my first few interactions with Amber I knew her to be a skilled, caring counselor. I am new to this and she never made me feel like a rookie or ever unsupported in any way. I look forward to meeting with her more and learning more about myself and this healthy process. She is fantastic.
