"Welcome! My name is Amber Boyd. I am an African-American, queer-identified Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist. I received my Bachelor's at the University of California, Berkeley in Sociology. I received my Master's at Syracuse University in Marriage and Family Therapy. My work strives to dispel the myth that mental health is taboo. I have experienced this myth within my own community.

"I have joyfully served children, youth & families, since 1981. I have worked in offices, homeless shelters, treatment centers, schools, group homes, hospitals, and the homes of many families. I truly believe in meeting people where they are. I believe that liberation comes from the relationships we form with people. My main goals in psychotherapy are to witness and appreciate your stories, as well as notice, validate and amplify your strengths, resources and values."

"We all sometimes face a challenge in life that we just can't seem to resolve on our own. It might be a new chapter in your life that brings unexpected trials: adulthood, marriage, parenting, step-parenting, divorce, children leaving home, caring for your aging parents, the loss of a loved one, or facing your own mortality. It might be a conflict in a relationship with a loved one or in your professional life. Or it might be more of an internal struggle, whether recent or long-standing, that is giving rise to anxiety, depression, struggles with food or alcohol, or other self-defeating behaviors."

"In a society that expects us to be constantly producing, connecting, and consuming, it is hard to take stock of the inherent complexities in our everyday lives, whether we are children, teens or adults. I see my role as creating a space for pause, reflection and calibration. I pay attention to themes that emerge from discussions we have, tracing the influences of past experiences to present decisions and emotions, helping to connect interactions in the therapy room to problems that emerge outside the therapy room."

"Are you seeking a space where your authentic self feels seen and understood? Therapy is a holding environment for you to express a range of emotions verbally and non-verbally. I provide an opportunity to do this through consistency and compassion. My passion is working with families, adults, and children and teens by assisting them to tap into their internal & external resources to heal and live more fully. Some of my unique traits people notice are I snort when I laugh and am very engaging :) I encourage people I work with to embrace themselves and develop space for inner kindness."

"When we find ourselves struggling with the kind of emotional pain that our usual strategies and supports can't relieve, good therapy is a lifeline. Like massage for physical injuries, psychotherapy effectively relieves chronic emotional pain, clears out unwanted emotional scar tissue, and creates flexibility, strength and new possibilities for positive motion in our lives. Whether you are worried about your own mental health, or the distress of someone you love, or are simply curious about how therapy might help, call/email me to schedule an initial conversation to talk about what kind of treatment is best for you."

"I believe that healing can come from numerous sources, but one of the most powerful is through interpersonal connections. In my work, I provide a space for vulnerability and understanding that allows these connections to foster change. Therapy is like an objective mirror that reflects thoughts, feelings, and emotions. Through this mirror, you can begin to see a clearer picture of yourself, so much so, that eventually you can carry that image outside of the therapy room and be happy and confident in what you see. I believe to have this image, you must strengthen yourself and the relationships that are in it."

"What I believe: Relationships are unique and come in countless shapes and sizes over time. Right now, relationships are already happening and changing in your life every day. Love is available in ourselves when we choose it, and choosing love in ourselves brings more love into our relationships. Yes, all relationships shift and change, and at the same time, love can regenerate again and again in the most mysterious moments and forms if we stay open and curious. The co-creative journey of intimate relationships is a fundamental part of our human well-being. You are lovable."

Never do we have the exact same desire for money in the bank, sexual frequency, social activities, neatness, or parenting ideas (etc.) This is built-in conflict.

Families come to my practice feeling lost, worried and some at the recommendation of a school counselor, lawyer, friend or pediatrician. Many parents have read multiple books and tried various interventions at home or at school without success. This can feel frustrating and upsetting, although it is a motivating starting place. What these families all have in common is concern for a child who is struggling in some way and in need of a child counselor. I offer child counseling, family counseling, family mediation, reunification, and parent support."
