Amber W

Instructor

Born and raised in California, Amber had an affinity for the outdoors from an early age and has always felt a great sense of peace while in the wilderness. The beauty of the natural world and the abundance of inspiration that arises from it seems to be an essential part of well being. Curious about what best supports mental health, Amber followed their interests to attend the University of California Santa Cruz, graduating with a Bachelor’s in Psychology. Amber became passionate about approaches to therapy that went beyond traditional Western notions of what is therapeutic. This led them to attend Tamalpa Institute, an expressive arts therapy training program that blends movement, artwork, spoken word, and wilderness immersion, to create an approach to therapy that is truly holistic. Passionate about growth and healing, Amber is honored for each opportunity to walk with another on their path towards self actualization.
