“Start where you are. Use what you have. Do what you can.” – Arthur Ashe
Throughout our lives we are challenged by obstacles that can be difficult to manage on our own. Reaching out for help in those times can be incredibly difficult. Working with a therapist during those struggles in life can help find the insight into some of the most rewarding and positive changes we make; leading to a more fulfilling and peaceful life. The first step in making changes in your life begins now.
I have been working the mental health field for over 14 years with clients struggling with depression, anxiety, grief & loss, addiction & co-dependency issues, and relationship or family dynamics. I have provided services in outpatient, inpatient, residential, as well as rehabilitation long-term care settings to clients ranging in age from adolescent to geriatric, both in individual and group sessions.
My professional philosophy stems from the belief that every person deserves to live fully; with hope for the future and the self-respect to believe you are worthy of it. I believe every individual is capable of change and possesses the resiliency within ourselves to improve our lives. We will work together to identify the aspects of yourself that are not working for you and discover a healthier direction for your life.

Amelia has provided non-judgmental, compassionate, effective counseling. I am so incredibly grateful to have worked with her. I know that she is listening to my concerns and responds thoughtfully, and I really appreciate that she checks in with me throughout the week in between sessions.
Ms. Lambert is the first counselor I have had in a long time, but she has already helped me in many ways. She has great insight into the relationship issues I have talked about with her, and her advice has already helped me manage several stressful situations and identify boundary issues that are improving my day-to-day life. Amelia takes the time to respond to the messages you send, and sometimes the ones that you don't. When I have taken longer breaks between messages she often reaches out to offer advice related to things I recently spoke to her about or ask for an update to see how I'm doing. I believe that Amelia is a great counselor and she has helped me immensely in a relatively short period of time.
I really appreciate that Amelia offers tools and resources for me to work through the topics we discuss in our sessions. She's very thoughtful in her approach, and has helped me to broaden my understanding of some of the challenges I've been facing this year.
