Amber Baack (she/her)

Accepting Clients

I am a holistic therapist focused on supporting people of all experiences who are seeking healing, embodiment, connection, and growth.

Clinical Social Worker in Wheat Ridge, CO


About My Clients

I believe that authenticity, curiosity, and compassion are core to practicing therapy. I specialize in supporting people in navigating self-esteem, transitions in life, stress, anxiety, and depression. In our work together, we will explore re-connecting to your whole self and the natural world. I know that you come into therapy with unique experiences, many that I may not have personally lived through. I believe you are the expert on you and I am here as an active guide and support beside you.

My Background and Approach

The world we live in often encourages us to disconnect from our bodies, emotions, and the natural world. Many people are also told that they cannot be themselves. My approach is to constantly be aware of the "whole picture" that impacts each person (oppressive systems, laws, history, world events, family systems, and relational interactions) while also focusing on the "here and now" of what you are experiencing during a session. Sessions with me include a somatic, nature-based, and/or experiential approach and can be indoors or outdoors. I am an active participant in each session, whether I am listening, guiding an activity, or being with you in the emotions and experiences that are coming up. My hope is that through our work together, you will be able to re-connect to the innate wisdom you already hold, find grounding and healing by connecting to nature, and learn concrete tools and practices for navigating daily life.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I believe that in the United States, we receive constant feedback to ignore emotions and sensations in our bodies, produce more, and show up a certain way to be accepted or "good". I believe this feedback can cause us to hold shame about parts of ourselves or our experiences. I also believe that each of us is already enough, as we are, and everyone should be able to be their whole self without shame or fear. I believe that therapy is a place to get to explore what healing shame and living into your authentic self can feel like. I have a deep love for nature and outdoor activities and some may consider me a music nerd. I am aware of my social location based on my identities, including white & cis-gender, and the privileges that they grant me. I am dedicated to approaching differences humbly and attentively and working towards dismantling oppressive and harmful systems, actions, beliefs, and narratives. I would love to connect with you and please reach out if you want to learn more!
