About Amber Prochnik
I am a licensed Marriage & Family Therapist. My passion lies in individual private therapy and helping others feel into their own existence and power, living a more joyful life. I work with adults and adolescents struggling with issues including anxiety, depression, trauma, self-esteem, and divorce. My empathy for those who struggle with depression, anxiety and life transitions was born out of my own journey. Through difficult times, yoga, meditation, and psychotherapy were guiding lights to evolution, inspiration and happiness. Strongly believing in the mind and body connection, my post-graduate studies have included somatic based trainings such as the Trauma Resiliency Model (TRM), in addition to mindfulness-based psychotherapy, and their neuroscience connection. Viewing psychotherapy with a holistic mind and body approach, I utilize an eclectic therapeutic style, integrating my training and experience in several different techniques to match the needs and goals of my clients.
I graduated Antioch University with a Master’s degree in clinical psychology. Prior to working in private practice, I provided therapy to adolescents in a high school setting and treated adults afflicted with trauma in a residential treatment center, leading weekly mindful resourcing and meditation groups. In addition, I’ve completed 2 years of extensive training at Counseling West, a depth psychology based counseling center in Sherman Oaks, working with adults and adolescents struggling with anxiety and depression.
