Amber Kay Miller, BS, Counseling Intern, RYT 500
Amber strives to provide a welcoming and non-judgmental environment for her clients as they seek wellness and support amongst life’s transitions and challenges. Amber received her Bachelor’s degree in 2006 from Miami University and is pursuing her Master’s degree in clinical mental health counseling from Lenoir Rhyne University. She is a certified integrative life coach and an experienced yoga teacher trained in advanced yoga therapeutics. Amber had her counseling practicum experience at Children’s Hope Alliance, working with children and adolescents with a trauma history, self-harm behaviors, and chronic suicidal ideation, and is completing her counseling internship here at Southlake Counseling. Amber enjoys working with adolescents and adults on a wide range of issues impacting well-being including, but not limited to, stress, anxiety, depression, trauma, chronic pain, bullying, self-esteem, grief, career exploration, or just feeling "stuck" and dissatisfied with one’s direction in life. Amber is familiar with navigating careers and the workplace as a former IT consultant and program manager in the fast-paced corporate world. She was a collegiate athlete and triathlete and is currently expanding her knowledge base with additional education in sports psychology. Amber’s passion for counseling developed from her own battle with chronic migraines and pain, anxiety, self-esteem, and childhood bullying. Amber uses a person-centered approach as her foundation and tailors the treatment plan and counseling approach to each unique client and their needs, drawing from tenets of individual psychology, mindfulness, motivational interviewing, solution-focused brief counseling, cognitive behavioral therapy, and dialectical behavior therapy.
When she is not in the office or teaching yoga, Amber enjoys spending time with her loved ones, gardening, hiking, or curled up with her dogs and a good book.
