Meet Amberlee

Hi! I am Amberlee. I love working with Teens and their Families. My goals are to help repair family issues, improve communication, and help Teens work towards their goals and move past their past. I am passionate about helping my clients overcome challenges and obstacles in both their personal and academic lives.

I am a nationally certified, Licensed Clinical Mental Health Counselor and Teacher and have been working in adolescent residential treatment since 2012, with the exception of a short period of time spent working in community mental health, specializing in adoption, attachment disorders, trauma, adolescent behavioral issues and substance abuse. Prior to becoming a licensed clinician, I was utilizing my undergraduate degrees in secondary and special education teaching high school as well as serving as special education coordinator. I am trained in Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), Cognitive-Behavior Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), Play therapy and certified in equine therapy (EAGALA). I love working with horses therapeutically to help repair familial, attachment and communication issues.

I am the mother of four fabulous children. In our free time you can find us boating and wake surfing, riding our ATV’s, skiing / snowboarding, hiking, camping and pretty much doing anything that involves the great outdoors.

Kelsey Howton, CSW (she/her)

My Specialties: Neurodiversity (ADHD and autism spectrum), Children, Teenagers/Young Adults, Faith & Life Transitions, Addictions, LGBTQIA+

Meet Kelsey

 Hello! Are you seeking help to manage your trauma, depression, or anxiety? Or are you struggling to navigate big life changes such as divorce, marriage, having a child, faith crisis, LGBTQIA+ exploration, or addiction?  I’m here to support you in learning emotional intelligence and mental wellness skills, to help you through your big transitions, and to help you rediscover your purpose, values, and motivation to create the life you love.

I have a Master’s degree in Social Work from Boise State University and a Bachelor’s degree in Marriage and Family Studies. I specialize in trauma, depression, and anxiety, using my extensive experience in educational and family service settings to provide compassionate and effective support for children, teens, and families. I work closely with parents and adults, helping them navigate the challenges of adulting and parenting while managing their anxiety. My diverse background enables me to effectively support individuals and families as a whole.

The tools that I pull from to customize care for each client are Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT), Internal Family Systems (IFS), strength-based therapy, and mindfulness. 

In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my husband and children. I am a music enthusiast and enjoy various genres. I play the piano and flute, and I am learning how to play classical guitar. I can be found often with my nose in a good book (Harry Potter is my favorite). I am a card and board game champion, which is one of my family’s favorite pastimes.

Reach out if you are seeking resources to navigate life at a more elevated level, and I would be honored to start this journey with you.
