Amber Sebastian, Clinical Intern

Amber is in the Marriage and Family Therapy program at Edgewood College and has experience working in community mental health.  She works with adolescents, adults, couples, and families, offering support for a variety of issues including depression, anxiety, ADHD, relationship difficulties, life transitions, stress and trauma. She supports folks of all ethnic and cultural backgrounds, gender identities, sexual orientations, and relationship structures.


Amber’s approach to therapy 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 therapy and Sensorimotor Psychotherapy, the techniques she is training in at Clear Path. She approaches therapy as a collaborative process wherein clients are gently guided inward with compassionate curiosity, engaging in self-exploration that allows clients to tap into their own inner resources and experience healing, insight, and growth. 

 

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. Call (608) 514-1981‬ or email amber@clearpathmadison.com to set up a free 20-minute consultation.

Bobbie Harte Shaw, Clinical Intern

Bobbie fiercely believes that seeing and being seen can heal. Sensuality is a way of being fully awake to the present moment, and humans are as varied and beautiful as flowers or trees. 

Now she’s in her second year in the Marriage and Family Therapy program at Edgewood College, and she’s learning to work with sexual health and relational issues for individuals and couples. While she identifies as white/cis/het/monogamous, she is deeply affirming of all ethnicities, identities, orientations, and structures. She is a radical advocate for valuing every human being and every stage of the lifespan.

 

In addition to her coursework at Edgewood College, she has completed Level 1 of Assessing & Treating Sex Issues in Psychotherapy with Martha Kauppi and the Institute for Relational Intimacy. She's also studying the Developmental Model of Couples Therapy, the Gottman Method of Couples Therapy, Internal Family Systems, and Sensorimotor Psychotherapy. She's passionate about a holistic, bodymind approach to psychotherapy.

 

Bobbie offers both in-person and virtual therapy sessions. If you're curious about becoming a client, call (608) 205-8299 or email bobbie@clearpathmadison.com to set up a free 20-minute consultation.
