About Amber Apostol
You deserve a chance at happiness and peace. Entering the therapeutic relationship takes a great leap of faith. I am here to work with you on building coping skills, identifying and meeting your individualized goals, and as a sounding board. I work with children, teens, adults, elders, couples, and families on a variety of presenting concerns. This includes but is not limited to anxiety, depression, panic, trauma, suicide and self-harm, sexual orientation or identity concerns, bipolar disorders, personality disorders, psychotic disorders, dissociative disorders, and development.
I enthusiastically started my mental health career approximately 10 years ago as a crisis counselor and have worked in outpatient, residential, partial hospitalization, and inpatient settings. I primarily work from a cognitive behavioral, dialectical behavior therapy, EMDR, humanistic, and compassion focused perspective. I integrate other theories as needed to meet individual needs.
Feel free to schedule a consultation with me by phone or video chat. I am honored to walk alongside you in your personal journey. I am dedicated to diversity, as I am the child of a Filipino immigrant and have trained in the diverse cities of New Orleans, San Francisco, and New York.
