She provides transpersonal support in the following contexts:

A graduate of the Institute of Transpersonal Psychology (now Sofia University) in Palo Alto, California, she holds the following degrees:
- Ph.D. in Transpersonal Psychology (ITP)
- MA in Women’s Spirituality (ITP)
- BA in Psychology (Univ. of Central Oklahoma)
Amber’s personal path is one that veered away from mainstream psychological approaches toward more radical applied transpersonal & feminist approaches that are geared toward everyday transformative living and social change.
Primary topics of interest include:
- dreamwork for communal wellness
- synchronicity as spiritual practice
- transformational potential of liminal space (especially birth and death)
- importance of ritual in psychospiritual well-being
- applied Grofian transpersonal theory
- intersections between personal aspects of psychospiritual well-being with environmental activism and concern
- a wide range of consciousness studies
Amber’s longstanding history with social change and innovative group approaches and methodologies yield a professional attitude rooted in compassionate service, collaborative spirit, creative inspiration, and grounded practicality.
More recently, Amber has deepened her studies of archetypal and evolutionary astrology, which have increasingly become a focal point in one-on-one Transpersonal Sessions, especially in conjunction with dreamwork.
