    Graduate Level Intern
    (She/Her)

    My name is Amber Yevak and I am a graduate-level intern pursuing a master’s of science degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling at the Commonwealth University of Pennsylvania – Lock Haven Campus. I hold a certificate in Foundations of Trauma Informed Care and Telemental Health. My clinical focus is primarily on adults, but I also work with children and adolescents. I have previous experience as a Behavioral Health Technician within the community setting and as an Elementary SAP Counselor.

    Through an integrative mind-body connection approach, we will work together to create a safe, nonjudgemental space to navigate and make sense of the patterns and experiences that negatively affect your daily routines. We will address the root cause of your ailments while equipping you with the tools necessary to calm not only your mind, but your brain, and body too.

    For those who have gone through trauma, your world is now experienced with a different nervous system, as it now attempts to maintain control over unbearable physiological reactions. Your brain is working from the bottom to the top, merely focused on survival and suppressing the inner chaos. We will work together through a trauma-informed lens to regain homeostasis and bring the brain back online so that true healing can be perceived and processed.

    No matter where you are in life, I welcome you exactly as you are, and I am honored to support you in overcoming the barriers life has bestowed upon you. Your story is important and deserves to be heard. Let’s roll up our sleeves and put in the work!

    I look forward to hearing from you!
