I am a mental health counselor and holistic health practitioner that focuses on healing in unique ways specific to the client's desires. I have been a solutions professional for over 17 years. I enjoy sharing knowledge, resources, and visual aids on a large variety of topics. I enjoy strengthening clients inner and outer confidence and pointing out routine positives as growth occurs. I am licensed in Arkansas with 7 years of professional work experience. In my most recent experience I have counseled families with school age children, first line responders, physicians, and military. I have gained experience with EMDR models for trauma recovery. I have learned to identify how to handle suppressed trauma, whether it is important to address in our lives now and understand how past trauma can play into our lives today. I have experience in working with helping clients with stress and anxiety, family conflicts, motivation, self esteem, confidence and depression. I believe that you are the expert of your story and that you have MANY strengths that will assist you in overcoming things that challenge you. It takes courage to seek out a more fulfilling and happier life; to take the first steps towards a change. I am here to support & empower you in that journey.

Amber listens, and is highly knowledgeable. She offers several different session opportunities and really will work with you. Our first session really “wowed” me. I truly believe that she has been invaluable to my path to a good mental health and has helped me dissect my feelings and look inward. I can’t thank her enough!

Amber is always in a bright bubbly mood. She's very sweet, sympathetic and always on time for our appointments. She sets goals for the week and sends resources. She's very encouraging, knowledgeable and understanding. I'm comfortable opening up with her because I know she won't judge me. I enjoy our sessions and feel better afterwards.
