Hello and welcome! My name is Amber, and I work under the business name "Nurturing Hope Counseling". I chose this name for my business because that is what I hope we can build working together in the counseling relationship. Life is stressful and hard at times, if not all the time, so coming together to find ways to grow and strengthen our hope is something that I find key to reaching the goals we create together in counseling. Hope is that "light at the end of the tunnel" we strive for, but sometimes lose sight of in the muck of life. But, fortunately the light penetrates the dark, so together we can foster the flame of hope again.

Hello and welcome! My work is focused on helping clients strengthen any number of dimensions in their relationships, including emotional connection, safety and intimacy, communication, conflict resolution, self- and other-confidence, trust building and repair from infidelity. I am trained in systems theory, which means I approach therapeutic work through the context of your relational systems, interactions, and feedback loops that create and perpetuate the problems, patterns, and behaviors clients are seeking to resolve. This often translates to facilitating change within the system in contrast to only within the individual.

We all encounter situations that feel overwhelming and test our coping abilities. I see therapy as a collaborative process that will help you navigate the challenges and transitions that life presents. I offer a safe, supportive environment to talk about issues that can be difficult to discuss elsewhere. Together we will explore how certain thoughts, behavior patterns, and past experiences might be contributing to your difficulties. We will identify your strengths and figure out effective coping strategies to create positive changes in your life. I work with adults, adolescents, and couples.

Focusing on Perinatal Mental Health encompasses all aspects of the journey to motherhood. I find that working with new moms struggling with the transition, anxiety and depression, women working to overcome infertility and the frustration of trying to conceive, and the moms that have experienced heartbreak of loss is where my heart is. The struggles during all of these journeys can be exhausting. Whether it is sleepless nights with a newborn, anxiety and worry keeping you up at night, or the wish that you were being kept up at night because you are struggling with becoming pregnant or have had a pregnancy loss-you have a place here.

My passion comes from life experiences & my desire to create positive changes in life. We all get stuck & that's part of being imperfectly human. There are times in life when we need someone to walk beside us in that stuckness entering the darkness - creating safety - allowing light to shine in new ways. Mindfully contemplating new ways of viewing & dealing with emotions & patterns surrounding emotions can be liberating, healing and life altering. I act as a choreographer of conversations, aimed to explore emotional connections & attachment injuries and impasses. As humans, we have a biological need to feel safe, secure & connected in our relationships.

As director of the BLOOM Maternal and Infant Wellness Program, I specialize in supporting women and their families through the transition to parenthood.

My areas of expertise include: The prevention and treatment of pregnancy and postpartum depression and anxiety, promoting healthy parent-child attachment, as well as strengthening and “baby-proofing” relationships.

Does your life or relationship need a major overhaul or maybe just a "tune up"? I can help you with either. Having successfully worked with a broad range of client issues from families in transition or conflict, to individuals with severe trauma and depression, I have been exposed to enough that nothing you tell me will shock me. I will not judge you. Often it is our unconscious patterns and life stories that influence the way we feel, think and behave. I can help you understand "why" so that you can change and feel better.... or perhaps gain the tools needed to ask someone else to change.

Do you struggle with depression, anxiety or self-criticism? Do you get overwhelmed by your feelings? Do you often feel lonely and misunderstood, even by those you love most? My goal as a therapist is to provide a safe, accepting and genuine place to help you learn to live your life to the fullest, actually being present...and discovering your strengths and potential. Understanding ourselves more allows us to get the connection and love we long for from others in our lives. Every person who comes to me has unique vulnerablities and experiences as well as unique personal strengths to discover.

All of us, including you, were born with a core self that’s vibrant, inviolable, and indomitable. It’s still there inside, waiting patiently for each of us to work through the layers of difficulties, frustrations, and self-doubt that have accumulated over the years. When we do that difficult work, we’re able to live more from the core self and less from the wounded layer that so many of us have adopted out of painful necessity. In therapy we'll clarify confusions, heal the hurt places, and connect with your core self so you can live with more ease, truth, and self-love.

Everyone has a unique story to tell. Sometimes the story is full of joy and laughter and sometimes it has challenges and heartbreak. For most of us, it falls somewhere in between. By taking the time to share and understand your story, you are given the opportunity to understand how your past shapes your current existence and how past relationships inevitably impact current ones. By understanding and owning your story, you give yourself the opportunity to choose how you want to go forward. One's past does not have to define one's future.

You sense that you have old beliefs or conditioning or fears, picked up from other people or culture, that hold you back from feeling truly open and free and comfortable with yourself.
