About Me

Are you stuck wondering whether you are too much or not enough? Do you live your life guided by the thoughts and feelings of others; working tirelessly to do what is right for each of them while forgetting to do what is right for you? Do you have the desire to make changes, but aren't sure where to begin? Are you overwhelmed by the prospect of embarking on this journey of self-exploration? If so, you are not alone. I am here to walk alongside you, all the while offering support and encouragement; helping you to identify and embody what makes you feel powerful and enough.

A 2011 graduate of the University of Iowa, I have spent most of my post-graduate career working with adults who live with chronic and/or life-limiting illness. I am a former Advance Certified Hospice and Palliative Social Worker and have extensive post-graduate training in perinatal bereavement and infant loss and advance care planning. As a social worker in private practice, I work extensively with individuals who struggle with a variety of challenges, including, mental illness ( depression, anxiety, etc.), grief and loss, life transitions, parenting challenges, and marital or relationship conflict.

Reviews

Written by A.N. on Dec 28, 2019 after counseling with Amber for 1 month on issues concerning stress, anxiety, and trauma and abuse

I am so pleased with Amber and her keen sense of insight and healing. I really feel she understands from a personal level and her advice is very helpful and soothing. It's been so great to have someone to talk to about my anxieties.
