I enjoy working with people to help them build a strong sense of self, encourage their confidence in relationships, and help foster a sense of calm and security in their everyday life. I enjoy helping parents navigate the many challenges that come our way. I believe people seek therapy for many reasons: adjustment to a new city or life situation, feeling overwhelmed or stuck, or problems with relationships. Counseling is a process that most of us could benefit from time to time at different stages in life, as it brings an outsider's perspective to events, we are faced with in day-to-day life in a nonjudgmental way.

“Taking refuge” is a phrase in Buddhism that serves as an invitation to our world-weary self to find relief. From the confusion of life’s dramas and the inevitable pull to get swept up in them. Loving relationships can offer that kind of relief, those in which one feels accepted and seen. And meditation, too: the mind slowing down and opening to its inherent spaciousness. Taking refuge requires building trustworthiness, through a softening and strengthening that happens over time in relationship. That is one of the reasons psychotherapy is effective: The trustworthiness that therapist and client build together allows for a depth of self to be known and expressed. Such encounters with self in turn build trustworthiness within oneself, for as our capacities enlarge, we enlarge. In coming to find safety and solace within, one learns to live less fearfully, participate in relationships with greater authority and ease. As a graduate of Naropa University and longtime Contemplative Psychotherapist, I see psychological healing through a Buddhist Psychology lens: as we open our hearts to ourselves through compassion and insight, we are able to shift and find more flexibility in our conditioned patterns of relating to ourselves and others. To facilitate that opening, I draw from a variety of psychotherapeutic practices and philosophies—Jungian Psychology, Gestalt Psychology, Object Relations Psychology, Rogerian Psychology, Internal Family Relations, and many mindfulness-based interventions such as Hakomi and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. I seek to create a warm and compassionate space in which you can explore, understand, and transform your life.

My name is Amber Hill, in 2003, I graduated from Old Dominion University with a Master of Science Degree in Education with a focus on School and Community Agency Counseling. I am a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC), a Certified Substance Abuse Counselor (CSAC), and a Certified Sex Offender Treatment Provider (CSOTP). I possess over 20 years of experience counseling in diverse environments with clients with varied backgrounds and presenting issues including: adolescent and adult residential treatment, in-home counseling, mental health counseling in correctional facilities, and working with adults transitioning back into the community after serving a period of incarceration in the Bureau of Prisons. My interventions are primarily cognitive behavioral therapy, identifying how client’s thoughts and feelings are manifested in behaviors resulting in both positive and negative consequences. As perception makes an event real, we can often think in a manner which is counterintuitive to our values, principles, and beliefs. By identifying alternative ways of thinking resulting in changing our feelings, we can change our responses to the outside world to change our behaviors; thus, maximize positive outcomes.
