Amber Baker, PhD, Psychologist in Mission Viejo
What distinguishes my practice is my specialized training and experience, warmth and support, ability to connect, creative approach to therapy, sense of humor, and love for what I do. When you experience anxiety, perfectionism, depression, life transitions, relationship, parenting, or career issues it may be difficult to feel happy, close to others, or comfortable in your daily life. I am skilled in working with individuals, couples, Veterans, and first responders. I offer a comfortable, confidential space where I collaborate with each client to create individually tailored sessions aimed at improving quality of life and achieving your goals.
I use Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Mindfulness based approaches, which are both supported by research for their effectiveness with anxiety, depression and other issues. I also utilize Gottman Method Couples therapy techniques for relationship issues. I am flexible and creative in my approach and encourage ongoing feedback from clients.
Connect with me today to discuss how we can work together to reduce your stress and discomfort and improve your relationships and quality of life. I offer complimentary, confidential phone consultations. Weekend hours now available. Visit my website to learn more about me and what I offer.
