About Me

I am a Licensed Professional counselor that has been work in a private practice since 2014. I have a Master’s degree from Liberty University and have contracted with community agencies in my community working in Substance Abuse since 2016. Before going to school for counseling, I worked for 10 years as a youth pastor and mentored teens, young adults and families through life struggles with a faith-based perspective. I facilitated a faith-based community resource for teens struggling with addiction called "Life Hurts, God Heals" which offered hope and healing in Jesus Christ and mentoring in life skills. My counseling style is founded in Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Mindfulness Therapy, and Motivational Interviewing. Clients set their own goals and discuss thoughts and behavioral patterns that contradict with these goals. Together we will evaluate clients’ strengths and support structures to assist in maintaining longer term progress. I have had experience working with clients dealing with end of life, chronic illness/pain, bereavement, depression, anxiety, personality disorder, bipolar disorder, abuse, addiction, codependency, job loss, relationship conflicts, adolescents, premarital/couple therapy, and family issues. I look forward to the opportunity to work with you.

Reviews

These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Amber Shaw. We don’t pay anyone to provide their review and they are all made voluntarily. Some people's experience receiving therapy with Faithful Counseling might be different.
