Hi, I’m Amber. I’m a Registered Psychotherapist (Qualifying), but I also fill several other roles in my life, such as being a mom to two exceptional children, a dog mom of two and a cat mom of one, a wife, daughter, and business owner. I have a strong love of animals that has led me to experience many opportunities, from opening a doggie daycare, spa, and boarding facility, to advocating and volunteering for the OSPCA and the Etobicoke Humane Society, to adopting my beautiful Galgo from Spain last spring.

I also enjoy anything and everything to do with the outdoors. I find being by the water to be very grounding and relaxing. When I’m not engaged with clients, you can find me relaxing by a pool or lake, attending one of my children’s sporting events, sitting on a patio, or going for a hike with friends.

About me as an Individual Therapist…

I am a Registered Psychotherapist (Qualifying) and passionate about supporting individuals in overcoming their adversaries. I am honoured to have the opportunity to help people become aware of their strengths, self-worth, and goals. Working from a collaborative, nonjudgmental, empathetic lens, encouraging clients to be the catalysts of their own realities, where I intuitively walk alongside them through the difficulties they are experiencing. I emphasize approaching my clients from a place of not knowing, striving to understand their ideologies, beliefs, values, and perspectives while honoring everyone’s ideals around health and healing.

I have a strong sentiment and have experience guiding clients through issues centering around Anxiety, Depression, Gender/Identity Concerns, Self-Esteem, Self-Worth, Life Transitions, Family Trauma, and Relational Challenges.

I work from a lens encompassing a multitude of therapeutic frameworks, embracing Narrative Theory, SFBT, Dialogical Theory, Emotion-focused Theory, Attachment Theory, and some components of CBT while employing a Strength-Based, Person-Centered, Non-Judgemental, Collaborative Lens.

About me as a Couple Therapist + Family Therapist…

As a Couples/Family therapist, I strive to foster a safe and open space for couples and families to come together and explore their relational concerns. I approach my clients with a curious and non-judgmental frame of mind, where I hope to understand their relationship(s) in its entirety, explore patterns within these relationships, discuss attachment perspectives and experiences, and understand the individual’s relationship and family goals. In doing this, I employ an EFT and Gottman lens, bringing in additional therapeutic perspectives where applicable.
