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.
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.
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.
One on one coaching sessions over the phone or internet. Sessions typically last 45 min to an hour.

Fees: from $60 to $200

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!
