Amber Gattie, LPC/Intern
You are imperfect, you are wired for struggle, but you are worthy of love and belonging – Brene Brown
Hello, I'm Amber, a LPC/Intern at NewPoint of View Counseling. My academic journey began with a degree in Psychology from Arizona State University, and I am currently immersed in a Master's program in Clinical Mental Health Counseling at Grand Canyon University.
My passion lies in mental health advocacy, and I am committed to a lifelong pursuit of knowledge. At the core of my therapeutic approach is a genuine desire for each individual I work with to feel valued and heard. I aspire to create an inclusive, accepting, and judgment-free space for my clients.
My professional background includes hands-on experience with diverse cultures and populations. Currently, I am actively training in both Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) and Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing Therapy (EMDR). These modalities enrich my toolkit, allowing me to offer comprehensive and effective support to those I serve.
I specialize in helping individuals navigate challenges such as anxiety, depression, trauma, and relationship issues. My focus also extends to life transitions, supporting the LGBTQ population, reprogramming negative thought patterns, and addressing family dysfunction. In addition, I am dedicated to teaching essential skills that present challenges for clients struggling with mood disorders and personality disorder; including interpersonal effectiveness, emotional regulation, distress tolerance, and mindfulness. These skills can empower you to gain much needed control over unwanted emotions and dysfunctional thought processes that may be preventing you from living the fulfilling life you deserve.
“Authenticity is the daily practice of letting go of who we think we're supposed to be and embracing who we actually are. Choosing authenticity means cultivating the courage to be imperfect, to set boundaries, and to be vulnerable.” Brene Brown
I am excited to be given the opportunity to make a positive impact on your life, fostering growth and well-being. Let's embark on this journey together, where compassion and expertise converge to bring about transformative change.
