Health and Wellness Coach, MA 
Brooklyn, New York, United States

Life Coach for people living with and affected by chronic medical and mental illness.

About me

I am an advocate for physical & mental health and access to care. With twelve years of experience my life coaching areas of focus include improving communication around disease-related education, behavior change strategies & psycho-support.

There are no magic pills or quick-fixes. I rely on principles of positive psychology and empower you to generate lasting transformation. It takes time to build physical muscles and similarly, I help to build your mental muscles so you can think differently and approach life more effectively. You will gradually develop the strength to face any challenges in life.

While you can't avoid the challenges of life and health management, you can work with me and together build a better understanding toward overcoming those challenges and achieving your goals.

Coaching with me

RESULTS & GOALS

I believe that significant improvements in your quality of life often happen in small steps. Helping clients feel heard, understood, and encouraged drive me to be a better coach. When clients take one small step, then another, and another, resulting in larger changes and bigger gains than they had thought possible; creating an immense inner sense of accomplishment and pride, I am the most rewarded.

I assist my clients through disease-related education, behavior change strategies, management of stress and anxiety, grocery store tours, medical care management, and psychosocial support.

Every ounce of progress comes from within you. Believe in yourself and everything else will fall into line. A coach is there to do just that, coach. Providers can not make change that you are not invested in. Push through the uncertainty and the rewards will be innumerable.

HOW I LIKE TO COACH

One of the first things I do is show and teach my clients how to be as gentle and compassionate with themselves as they possibly can, as we are often the hardest on ourselves when faced with adversity. If you are feeling overwhelmed or hopeless because you or a loved has been diagnosed with a chronic illness, I will listen deeply to fully understand what your life is like and during sessions we’ll talk about your situation, your challenges, and the things that matter to you. I will show you how to give yourself support and empathy as I assist you to envision your goals and develop steps you can take to make your life better and better, no matter how impossible it may seem at the moment.

PROFESSIONAL AND LIFE EXPERIENCE

Amber Drew is an advocate for physical & mental health, access to care, and gender equity. She has built her personal and professional life around assisting clients diagnosed with and affected by HIV/AIDS and other chronic medical and mental health ailments to gain self-efficacy and stability.

Raised in a family of physicians, Amber developed a keen sense toward healing and helping people reach their personal medical goals. A focus on science and psychology led Amber to obtain a Master’s Degree in Forensic Mental Health Counseling. The premise of her studies focused on survivors and how to build successful steps from distress to healing. Amber strives to ensure survivors are receiving the support and resources they need to recover and thrive and that communities are investing in creating social change meant to restore and not dissuade.

Through the process of inquiry, Amber guides you to gain clarity and find solutions to challenges. Her cognitive behavioral approach is focused on changing thought patterns and creating new thoughts that enable you to take action in order to achieve your desired results. Amber believes that a chronic illness diagnosis does not mean you can not live an extraordinary life. No matter how ill you are, you can still make a difference to your family, your community, and your world.

With twelve years of experience in clinical psychology, medical case management, and behavioral health interventions, Amber’s areas of focus include improving communication around disease-related education, behavior change strategies and psycho-support. She has effectively integrated these approaches into routine health care with a wide range of health professionals and support groups. With focus in these areas, Amber has helped numerous clients to achieve a work-life balance, build self-trust and confidence, navigate family matters and develop personal satisfaction.

Whether you are newly diagnosed and seeking extra support and guidance or are a caretaker/guardian for someone with a chronic illness and would like assistance with exploring new opportunities while managing your health and the health of your loved one, Amber looks forward to working with you to assist you in realizing your true path.

    Highly recommend

    I worked with Amber for 18 months and working with her completely changed my life. She is very professional, trust worthy, and allowed me to really open up to see my full potential. I was able to move forward in my career and pick up my passion again (painting)- when there was a time that I didn't have the confidence to do either. Amber really helped me conquer my self doubt and fear of the unknown. She pushed me to achieve more than I thought I could. Thank you Amber Drew! I will recommend you again and again!
