Amber has been a great resource for my 16 year-old daughter during troubling times and I highly recommend her to anyone who wants to offer support to their child.

Amber is supportive and realistic. She provides a judgement-free zone and has really helped me improve my mental health. She is flexible with scheduling and trying out what works best for you. I am very comfortable talking to Amber.
