About Me

My name is Amberlyn Keller. My education background includes: I have a bachelor’s of science degree in psychology from York College in Nebraska, a master’s of arts degree in Applied Research Psychology from The University of Texas of the Permisn Basin in Odessa, Texas, a second master’s of art degree in School Counseling from University of St. Thomas in Houston, Texas and I completed my License Professional Counselor (LPC) classes through Lamar University through online education.

I have 13 years teaching experience at all levels of education including special education as well as teaching experience at the college level teaching psychology courses online for five years for Midland College from 2005-2010 as a part-time adjunct teacher. I also coached various sports including basketball, volleyball, cross country and track working with teenage student-athletes. I have been counseling since 2015 when I started to complete practium and internship hours for certification in school counseling followed by hours needed for LPC, respectively, so I have spent a lot of time engaging with young people. I am fully licensed in the state of Texas as a LPC and have experience working in private practice as well as in a behavioral psychatric hospital.

I like to focus on client centered therapy, cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) and have a realist approach to counseling. I also believe working through grief and trauma is important in moving forward in life. Mindfulness and yoga practices along with the use of essential oils can help with this. I believe each meeting with a client is a conversation that serves a purpose where the client can talk things out, think things through and grow. I love to work with children and adults and enjoy incorporating physical activity, yoga, deep breathing and mindfulness meditation into counseling sessions. I believe that young people have a voice that should be heard and helping young people work to gain knowledge gives them empowerment to make changes in their life that can help them thrive.

I look forward to working with young people to help guide their thinking and ideas so they can be their best selves each day. I hope to provide a service of counseling that can make a young person feel better, feel empowered or at least gain some perspective each time there is a visit. Young people are the future of the world so taking care of their mental health is extremely important for them as well as the future of the world as a whole.

Amberlyn Keller is an absolute sweetheart. She’s extremely personable and it’s immediately apparent that she genuinely cares about the individual she’s counseling. The only reason I didn’t give her a 10 on one of the survey questions is not because she isn’t capable, it’s because she’s only been my therapist for a couple of weeks and I don’t believe that is enough time for her to fully understand all of my needs. With more time I think she could absolutely understand me at a very deep and personal level. I highly recommend her.

Amberlyn has helped me to identify myself as well as goals, values, and directions for my life. She has created a safe and honest space for me to evaluate my depression, my anxiety, and the behaviors, habits, and consequences of them. Although it has been tough for me to face my actions as well as how I feel about them, think about myself, and behave because of them, Amberlyn has helped me realize many things about myself that I was unsure of before.

Amberlyn has been a wonderful help, and her counseling has opened my eyes to options I previously hadn't seen. I recommend teen counseling to friends all the time, thanks to the incredible and professional experience I've had with Amberlyn.

Amberlyn does a wonderful job of breaking down your thoughts and helping you understand where your feelings are coming from that you may not notice. She also does a great job relating to your feelings in a way, but not devaluing them by doing so. Amberlyn is very listening and understanding and makes you feel like a friend.

Amberlyn is an excellent counselor. She listens well and does an admirable job of verbally restructuring experiences and providing alternative interpretations of events. She has provided reminders of valuable insights that make coping easier. Everyone has weak areas, but Amberlyn's are few while her strengths as a counselor are many and great. She provided me with numerous helpful resources, validation, confirmation, and understanding.

I’ve struggled for years with depression, and for the longest time denied I needed help. When I finally sought help, and got matched with this lovely lady, I was nervous. But two days in to talking, I realized how much I had changed; for the good. Without a doubt the best counselor I’ve had.

As a person who was hesitant to have a counselor because I think i’m too smart to deal with my issues through one, I can say I’m happy I got teen counseling and got partnered with Amberlynn. She is supportive, insightful, flexible, and genuine. I’m thankful to have her. I don’t plan to change counselors now and hope to have amberlynn again if I ever leave/return to teen counseling :)

Amberlyn Keller has been instrumental in my mental health growth. She was kind, considerate and patient through my frustrations. She was able to intelligently pinpoint issues I was having and to gracefully help me realize them myself. She recognized my values and honored them, incorporating them into her treatment. She gave me practical tools that I could apply to my everyday life and helped me understand the steps to implement them. I am honored that I have been able to work with her these past few months.
