Welcome to My Blog- Mom, Therapist, Me!
My name is Amber and I am a licensed therapist in TN (LPC-MHSP). I have been studying psychology for over 20 years and I've been working in mental health for over 10 years. I have a Master's degree in Forensic Psychology and a Master's in Clinical Mental Health Counseling. I have a background in outpatient counseling, crisis counseling, play therapy, residential treatment, and substance abuse counseling. I currently run my own private practice, Healing & Hope Clinical Counseling LLC, in which I provide therapy to teens and adults dealing with various mental health issues.
Now that you know a little about me, let me explain what my blog is about. It is actually two-fold. First let me say that I am passionate about several things, primarily: being a mom, mental health, and issues affecting the Black community. As such, in "Mom, Therapist, Me," I will discuss a variety of topics such as: the day to day of being a single mom and topics related to therapy/mental health. And secondly, I will discuss the injustices that Black people face, and other things that make me.... me! If these things are of interest to you.... keep reading!
