Hello! My name is Amber and I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker with over ten years of experience providing therapeutic counseling services. I have worked in several therapeutic settings to include outpatient clinical services, skilled living facilities, community mental health, and nonprofit healthcare services. I have also served clientele within the social services, law enforcement, and military communities ranging from foster care and adoption, criminal offenders and active duty members.
As a military brat, I’ve moved much of my life but recently settled in Florida to be near family and continue my clinical work. I received my undergraduate degree in Social Work at the University of Tennessee at Martin and my Masters degree in Social Work at Western Kentucky University. I am dual-licensed in Florida and Tennessee specializing in family conflict, marriage/relationship issues, domestic violence, anger management, depression, stress and anxiety.
I would best describe my approach as open and client centered. I encourage each couple to play an active part in their treatment through use of motivational interviewing, to encourage insight and self-awareness. I target topics around relationship intelligence to build communication and conflict resolution skills that will promote a more solid foundation for each couple. I value continued education throughout the life of any relationship, and my goal is to help each couple add new skills to their toolboxes.

Amber is a great listener and very good at turning my thoughts into tangible concepts
Amber is very calming and knowledgeable. She has a way of pulling things out and asks questions that don’t seem mundane and unoriginal.
Amber gave us assignments that forced us to take a look at what we both want in our marriage. This helped open our communication with one another and things improved.
