Deborah Ambrose MA, MAT, LAC

Educational Background: I earned my Master’s degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from Centenary University and my Master’s degree in Teaching Special Education from New Jersey City University and my Bachelor’s degree from Gettysburg College.

Therapeutic Approach: I utilize a variety of techniques and theories based on the needs of my clients. Some of the therapeutic approaches that I utilize include Solution-focused Brief Therapy Interventions, Cognitive Behavioral (CBT), Mindfulness-based (MBCT), Motivational Interviewing, Multicultural, Relational, Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), and Person-Centered Therapy.

As a Licensed Associate Counselor, I have extensive experience working with a wide range of diverse clientele from varied socioeconomic and cultural backgrounds. I have worked in clinical outpatient settings, intensive outpatient programs, and partial care substance abuse rehab care and eating disorder care, providing individual therapy, group therapy, and psycho-educational facilitation. I have also been a teacher for many years and have experience navigating the educational system. I utilize an eclectic approach with clients with the understanding that each client’s needs are unique to them and change throughout the therapeutic process. I enjoy working with a wide variety of people. I believe in providing a safe space through compassion, validation, empathy, patience, and support.

During my free time, I enjoy time with family and pets. I have three adult children, two dogs and a cat. I practice yoga daily and like to work with the mind body connection. I also love to travel and experience new things.
