A Few Words from Amber

"I am dedicated to working with those that society deems too much, untreatable and throwaways. Together, with your health coming first, I know things can get better."

More about Amber

I love to play with my dogs, explore nature, cook, and finger paint.

I believe no one is ever broken, because people are not fragile - we have proven how resilient we are by being alive. I’m passionate about giving kindness always because nothing makes me feel better than giving good energy.

I believe the bravest thing you can do is having the courage to start something new and open yourself up to vulnerability. My every day, positive affirmation is: You have worth, you have value, and you are important.
