Amber serves as the Office Manager and Social Media Content Manager for Chicago Mindful Psychotherapy, and our partner practice, Andersonville Psychology. She provides direct support to our clinical teams and Executive Director.
More about Amber:
My personal shift to mindful living (versus living mind-FULL-y) began in January 2019 when I transitioned out of a longtime management position at a holistic chiropractic office. During this transition, I leaned heavily on daily meditation (via Insight Timer), breath work, and talk therapy as ways to help me gain clarity on my personal and professional life goals.
As the Office Manager for Chicago Mindful Psychotherapy, and our partner practice, Andersonville Psychology — I oversee our billing and insurance procedures, and all administrative and logistical demands pertaining to our business operations. I also manage and implement the marketing needs for both practices, while providing direct support to our clinical team, and President/Owner.
This multifaceted role provides me with the opportunity to strengthen organizational and operations management strategies, while sharing my creative talents as a graphic designer, writer, and social media content creator.
One of my personal goals at CMP is to foster and maintain a safe space for our team, and for all individuals to feel welcomed in our office — whether that be at their individual appointments, group therapy meetings, or at our public-facing events such as art openings and networking gatherings.
Once this pandemic is under control, I hope to add more stamps to my passport. In the meantime you will find me spending my free time watching 90’s reruns on Hulu, and tinkering with creative writing. Someday I’d like to publish a memoir on my own experiences with grief and forgiveness. I am passionate about helping to break the stigma around mental illness, and believe that access to mental healthcare should be a human right.
