About My Clients
I love working with individuals who feel stuck and are tired of feeling stuck. They know that therapy takes work, and they are ready to put in that work so that they can feel better.
My Background and Approach
I'm sorry that you have been struggling with whatever brought you here, but I am so glad that you are reaching out for help. My clients would tell you that I am a great listener, am non-judgmental, am culturally sensitive, and meet people where they are at. I work with adults who struggle with various challenges, but my favorite issues to address are challenges with mood, thoughts, and substance use/addiction. Please visit my website for more details at www.amberholtlcsw.com. I am a Licensed Independent Clinical Social Worker and a Chemical Dependency Professional in Washington. I also have a Master Addiction Counselor credential. I have worked in the mental health field since 2001. I work with people who experience varying mental health challenges, including those with a dual diagnosis (substance use). I offer traditional in-person services as well as services online. Feel free to contact me with any questions you have and to see if we might be a good fit working together.
