To Shine Your Brightest Light Is To Be Who You Truly Are

About Amber Lights Counseling Solutions

Everyone deserves the opportunity to live a happy, peaceful, and progressive life. I recognize that your circumstances are unique, and I can assure you that we will approach this process in a way that is comfortable as well as incorporates your individuality and your strengths. Whether you are struggling with mood symptoms, anxiety, self-esteem, work/life balance issues, family and “significant other” relationship issues, parenting concerns, PTSD related to racism, discrimination and social media or something else entirely, we will work together to create realistic goals.

Once the problem or problems have been identified, together we will develop strategies and goals to replace the negative patterns with positive thoughts, feelings, and behavior patterns. I utilize various treatment modalities with my clients such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Solution Focused Therapy, Strength Based and Mindfulness interventions.

My counseling style is to be warm, approachable, and relatable as well as straight-forward, supportive, and goal oriented. I encourage you to take the first steps towards change. If you are ready to take that step, I am here to support and guide you through the process. I wish you the best and I look forward to working with you!

Amber Lights Commitment and Statement of Care

Amber Lights Counseling Solutions is committed to building balance and longevity throughout the therapeutic progress. We practice and encourage self-love and self-care to be present with our emotional, psychological, spiritual, and physical needs. Additionally, we commit to engaging in our own healing as we know this directly impacts our skills and capacities as healing practitioners.

We believe that everyone has the right to heal and live a healthy life. We believe in our infinite capacity to transform the trauma and suffering we have experienced by doing the work. We honor each person’s lived experience, unique healing journey, resilience, and joy. We see ourselves as an important piece of a larger collective, emotional, spiritual, psychological and physical unfolding happening in a person’s life. We believe we have the power to transform the trauma and harm that has impacted our individual and collective well being; and so we honor our ability to hold self-determined processes that heal and intervene on trauma and harm in our lives.

We honor the traditions, creativity, and cultural practices individuals have used to build resilience and survive. We see these as gifts to be strengthened alongside the work held by healing practitioners.

In the event we are not able to offer a practice/service based on our capacity or knowledge, we will provide recommendations and/or referrals.
