Hi! My name is Amber Lynn Dicker and I am a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) in South Carolina with over 4.5 years of experience working as a clinical mental health clinician who has specialized training as a Certified Clinical Trauma Professional (CCTP) & a Nationally Certified Counselor (NCC). I have worked with clients who struggle with various concerns including anxiety, depression, self-doubt, distorted thought processes, trauma responses, and family discord.
I would describe my approach as strengths based & goal oriented. I blend Cognitive Behavior Theory (CBT), Motivational Interviewing (MI), and Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) to help clients identify what they would like to get out of their experience while building healthy coping skills to manage distress. The connection between our thoughts, behavior, and emotions is strong and can influence the way we view ourselves, our abilities, and the way we interact with others. It takes identifying our patterns of thought, breaking down our behavior, finding our motivation, and increasing our coping skills to tackle stressors in the most effective way and work toward healing.
I strive to be a supportive professional resource to help my clients make genuine positive life changes by using evidenced-based approaches. Addressing maladaptive behaviors or thought styles can be difficult, but that does not mean it has to be overwhelming or that you have to do it alone.

These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Amber Lynn Dicker. 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 is diligent, observant and caring. She encourages emotional affirmation and always is concerned with my happiness even when I couldn't.
Amber has been an absolutely incredible therapist. I have been through multiple psychologists in my time, and she has surpassed them tremendously. I look forward to our sessions, and they really help a lot. She’s helped me realize things about myself I could never have figured out on my own. Thanks Amber!
She's a very good listener. Love her attentiveness.
Couldn't recommend Amber Lynn Dicker more. She has been consistent in approach and helps reinforce my perspective. She has been flexible with scheduling and always very responsive. Any one would be lucky to have such a great counselor.
I have only been seeing Amber for a few sessions now & I must say she makes me feel as comfortable as talking to a lifelong friend is. She is insightful & lends a listening ear in the areas of my life I am currently struggling to feel heard in. I always feel like a tremendous weight has been lifted off my shoulders after every session with her & she is extremely reassuring when I am feeling doubtful or uncertain. I highly recommend giving Amber the chance to help you work through whatever aspects of your life you are currently struggling in.
