AMBER A. JACKSON
My approach to therapy is creative and interactive, co-creating space and relationship that centers your desired goals of care and healing. I provide a non judgmental space for people to explore and process life experiences while also providing a variety of interventions to facilitate emotional insight, wisdom and change. My therapeutic practices include attachemnent-based Psychodynamics, Object Relations, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Internal Family Systems, jungian and depth psychology, feminist therapy, somatic and mindfulness techniques and integration of spiritual growth. My specialties include working with individuals on the autism spectrum, grief and loss/complex grief, and those who have experienced trauma (physical abuse, sexual abuse, emotional and psychological abuse/neglect), spiritual and religious trauma and those healing from purity culture. While co-creating authentic self concepts that allow people to heal, grow and thrive, I provide tools and strategies for dealing with the pain and discomfort that comes with deconstructing cognitive beliefs surrounding traumatic stress/narratives. Relief from symptoms and clarity of self are often benefits acquired from committed participation in therapy and I hope to provide the therapeutic space to honor this process.
As a social justice oriented professional, I believe that all people with all abilities in all bodies deserve equal access to identity affirming, culturally responsive care. I support and center all experiences of black, indigenous and People of Color (BIPOC) and the LGBTQIA+ community as well as Neurodivergent and disabled communities.
"A Mandala is the psychological expression of the totality of the self. Wholeness is not achieved by cutting off a portion of one's being, but by integrating of the contraries" ~ Carl Jung

Making You Feel Better
I implement effective psychotherapy methods to instill self-understanding among patients and encourage them to adopt new attitudes and feelings towards life situations. Since opening the doors of my private practice in 2013, I have provided patients in the greater Northwest Arkansas area a wide range of mental health services. From small scale circumstances to traumatic experiences, my
services are personalized to suit everyone’s needs.
*At this time I am providing teletherapy only*
