Amber Sebastian, Psychotherapist, MFT-IT

Amber graduated from the Marriage and Family Therapy program at Edgewood College and specializes in couples counseling. She works with individuals, couples, and families, offering support for a variety of issues including relationship difficulties, depression, anxiety, ADHD, life transitions, grief, stress and trauma. She strives toward an affirming and client-centered approach and supports folks of all ethnic and cultural backgrounds, gender identities, sexual orientations, neurotypes, and relationship structures.


Amber’s therapeutic approach draws upon Buddhist philosophy and the notion that every human being possesses an innate clarity-- an inner "Self" harboring qualities of compassion, courage, wisdom, and loving-kindness. This aligns well with the language of Internal Family Systems (IFS) therapy, a technique she is training in at Clear Path. Amber approaches therapy as a collaborative process wherein clients are gently guided inward with compassionate curiosity, engaging in a process of self-exploration that allows clients to tap into their own inner resources to experience insight, healing, and growth. 

 

As a couples therapist, Amber strives to create a climate of emotional safety that allows partners to develop new ways of connecting with one another, overcome problematic communication patterns, strengthen trust, and deepen their sense of closeness and intimacy. Amber has completed Levels 1 & 2 of the Gottman Method of Couples Therapy. Additionally, she has completed an externship in Emotion-Focused Couples Therapy (EFCT) and will complete her training and certification in EFCT during 2024-2025 via the MN Center for Emotionally Focused Therapy.

 

Amber offers both in-person and virtual therapy sessions, as well as group therapy and workshops. If you’re curious about becoming a client, the first step is a conversation.
