My name is Amber Boyd and I am an African-American, queer-identified Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist. I have an online private practice: Healing Through Authenticity which allows me the opportunity to have a larger range of seeing clients in both California and Texas. I have success in working with marginalized communities by co-creating an affirming space where trust and safety are established as a baseline.
I work with People of Color around addressing: anxiety, depression, work-life balance, family of origin concerns, generational barriers, LGBTQ+ concerns, and dispelling the myth that mental health is not important within said communities.
We will address how what you are experiencing is showing up in your life - is it making it difficult to do your work or is limiting how you feel? We will explore lingering issues, healthy coping strategies, and building resilience.
Some of the issues can present as:
-life, career, school transitions
-trauma (current, previous, generational)
-body image and self-acceptance issues
