My name is Amber Boyd and I am an African-American, queer-identified Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist. I am also a published author, podcast host, and support group facilitator!
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 had 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 taboo within said communities. 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
-bariatric support group from a biopsychosocial perspective (5-weeks)
