Amber C. Gardner, MA, LPC, ALMFT
Amber has two Master’s Degrees from Governors State University, one in Counseling with a concentration in Marriage and Family Therapy and the other in Communications and Training. Her passion is helping individuals (children, teens, adults and seniors), couples, families, and groups work through stress, anxiety, fear, depression, personal challenges, grief, and relationship issues. She believe that if you change the way you think, you can change your behavior. Amber uses a more positive approach to help clients switch their focus to solutions instead of problems. Amber uses play therapy when working with children which helps them express themselves more freely. She is also trained in Gottman Method Couple’s Therapy and maintains a Level 1 Certification.
Amber believes that people cannot always control what happens to them. The only thing that they have the ability to control is themselves and how they react to what happens to them. She is uniquely qualified to help clients live their life on purpose by creating a positive, more peaceful life so that they can reach their full potential!
“Life is 10% what happens to you and 90% how you react to it”. Charles Swindoll
