Amber Garman is passionate about facilitating therapeutic work with children (10+), teens, adults, families, couples, and groups, especially those interested in moving inward toward transformation and healing. Growing up a local resident in Morro Bay CA, Amber attended California Polytechnic State University San Luis Obispo where she earned a Master of Science in Psychology with Distinction. Currently as an Associate Marriage and Family Therapist, Amber is experienced in the domains of trauma informed care, sexual assault and intimate partner violence, death/ grief/ dying, and living with disabilities.

Some of these valuable approaches include Person Centered, Attachment, Art, Experiential, Somatic, Family Systems, Cognitive Behavioral, Culturally Sensitive, and Trauma informed care.
As an Internal Family Systems (IFS) informed clinician, Amber believes each of us are born equipped with inner self led wisdom and a system of supportive helping parts.
