About me

Hello and welcome! My name is Amber and I am a licensed clinical social worker in Illinois. I bring 7 years of professional work experience, working with clients across the life cycle (3 years old to 80+ years young)!

I understanding that finding a "good fit" in a therapist is much like finding that perfect pair of shoes. You may have to try on several before you find the ones meant for you. Reading through these profiles can be a part of that "try on" process. As a therapist I believe that my role in the relationship is to assist you on your journey to wellness through compassionate care and genuine empathy. I utilize a client-centered approach and include my clients in every part of the planning process.

I understand the fragile, and sometimes complicated, intersection between our daily lives and our faith life. For many their faith can create distress. It is my belief that with guidance we can learn to navigate these waters and find a sense of calm amongst the chaos. I have experience in helping clients with navigating depression, stress and anxiety, relationship issues, trauma and abuse, & coping with life changes.

I believe that you are the expert of your story and that you have many strengths that will assist you in overcoming things that challenge you. Taking the first step to sign up for therapy can take courage and I am proud of you for getting started!

After about 5 months of consistent therapy with Amber I can truly say she is absolutely amazing. Not only did she help me recover past traumas but she allowed me to branch unto different traumas each week. I am a person who you can call all over the place at times of stress but Amber really helped me target lots of my issues at once. I am leaving betterhelp at the moment but hope to come back and revisit therapy once life settles down. Thank you Amber for always being gentle and kind with me. I will miss her in the meantime!!

Amber is sweet, kind, and extremely skilled at what she does. She has helped me in our first session to better understand a little more of myself in a way that isn't like she's just "giving it a name" to get it over with, but to really understand and help yourself learn how to be better.

Make time to meet with her and you'll see right away that she'll be a good fit for you :)

Work with me!
