My name is Amber Gordon (she/her/hers), and I am a LicensedClinical Social Worker in the state of California. I received my master’sdegree in social work from the University of Southern California and bachelor’sdegree in English from the University of California, Irvine. I developed myclinical skills in various mental health settings, including community mentalhealth, substance use treatment, intensive outpatient, and partial hospitalization settings. I have prioritized working with marginalized communities,such as communities of color, LGBTQ+ identified folx, HIV+/at risk populations,and those experiencing houselessness.
My goal is to help guide folx through discovering their ownpower and potential. By utilizing a low barrier approach that focuses on the humanization and empowerment of the individual, I hope to reinforce thateveryone is worthy of healing. My work is informed by critical race theory,queer feminist theory, and ecological systems theory. I am a trained EyeMovement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) therapist and deliver my services through a trauma-informed lens.
