About me

Hello! I am a licensed professional counselor in Pennsylvania. I graduated with my Master's in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from California University of PA (now PennWest California) in 2014. I have 8+ years experience in working with clients affected by mental health issues, traumatic experiences, and other life stressors. I specialize in dealing with PTSD and trauma. I also have experience working with people facing depression, anxiety, ADHD, struggling with peer issues, issues with school/extracurricular activities/life balance, relationship issues, low self-esteem, identity issues, and other mental health struggles. I am a gender affirming therapist that also addresses issues related to LGBTQIA+.

I use different approaches such as cognitive behavioral therapy, mindfulness, and person-centered strategies to assist clients in working towards their goals and managing their issues. I believe clients are the authors of their own stories, masters of their own destinies. I am here to help guide, challenge and change narratives, and support what my client is working towards.

It takes courage to ask for help. It takes bravery to seek out a more fulfilling and happier life and to take the first steps towards a change. I am here to offer support, guidance, corrective feedback, and support.

These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Amber Preston. We don't pay anyone to provide their review and they are all made voluntarily. Some people's experience receiving therapy with BetterHelp might be different.

Amber has been great so far. She’s good and pinpointing the problem when I feel like I’m drowning in the symptoms of the problem. She’s given me tons communication outside of our sessions. That surprises me and I’m so appreciative.
