Amber White

Licensed Professional Counselor, LPC Board Approved Supervisor, Practice Owner


About Amber

You may have been struggling with overcoming past trauma or abuse, dealing with overwhelming stressors in life, or feeling unheard or misunderstood in your relationship. NOW is the time to turn that around. My goal is to provide exceptional therapeutic services, by helping to identify personal and relational strengths and to build/strengthen you as an individual, as well as the relationships you are in.

To assist with trauma/PTSD issues, I use EMDR therapy to reprocess traumatic memories and eliminate intrusive triggers you are facing today. If marital/relationship issues are the concern, I use Gottman Couples Therapy to heal betrayals of trust, improve bond, improve conflict management skills, and build positive communication and positive shared rituals.

As the owner and supervisor of Firm Foundations, I work closely with all of our therapists to ensure that you have the best experience possible during your healing process.

I also provide supervision services for PLPC’s.

Start today with taking steps toward a more positive, satisfied life. Call now to set up a phone consultation or therapy session.

Licensed Professional Counselor


About Emily

Let’s be honest, life can be tough. There are times when we find ourselves feeling lost, overwhelmed, and unheard. We experience a range of emotions and face situations that can be difficult to manage alone. Counseling is a helpful tool to gain clarity and direction when things seem too foggy to navigate on our own. As a counselor, it is my goal to provide my clients with a solid counseling relationship built on trust, empathy, and unconditional positive regard. Through this process, I strive be a partner in helping clients to discover and build upon the strengths and potential they already have within themselves.
I believe that each client and their journey are unique. As such, I employ a variety of interventions and techniques tailored to the needs of each client. As a partner in the therapeutic process, I encourage clients to utilize self-reflection to derive meaning from their experiences, and work towards a place of self-acceptance and personal empowerment.
I wholeheartedly believe in the benefits of counseling. I am committed to providing clients a safe and non-judgmental space so that they may find solace and achieve personal growth through the counseling process. I am currently accepting new clients and would love the opportunity to walk with you on your journey. Call me today to set up your appointment.

About Lesley

Life can feel overwhelming sometimes. It could be losing a loved one or a job. Maybe there’s conflict within your family or other close relationships. Sometimes you just feel sad, lonely, or confused about what to do next. This is when counseling can help. It’s important to realize that you’re not alone and that help can be found, you just have to be willing to take that first scary step in asking for it.

My passion is in helping people discover the tools that will help them live the life they’ve always wanted. I’m also committed to helping those clients who want to integrate their Christian faith and scripture with traditional counseling theory.

Each situation is different and we will work together to discover the best path forward that’s unique and right for you. Take that first step and reach out for help, I think you’ll be amazed at what you’re able to accomplish with the right support.

About Alyssa

There are so many obstacles life can throw at you. It is exhausting, crippling, and overwhelming. It can leave you feeling like you are caught in a tidal wave and drowning. How do you get to a place where you feel like you can breathe again? Take my hand and let me help pull you out of the crashing waves. My ultimate goal as a therapist is to create a safe, non-judgmental space for my clients to speak freely in. I believe in establishing caring, trustworthy relationships with my clients.

Provisionally Licensed Professional Counselor


About Hannah

“We delight in the beauty of the butterfly, but rarely admit the changes it has gone through to achieve that beauty.” – Maya Angelou

Life can throw all types of challenges at us that can be difficult to see through. When we feel overwhelmed, having a space of our own to talk openly with someone that listens without judgement can help us gain insight into the challenges we are facing and see things in a different way.

My therapeutic approach combines solution focused brief therapy and Satir growth model therapy to create an authentic, collaborative relationship with my clients. Every person faces different challenges in life and using a variety of techniques I focus on developing a path that fits each individual person for the direction they wish to grow.

I currently hold a Bachelors in Psychology and a Masters in Marriage and Family Therapy from the University of Louisiana Monroe with provisional licensure through the state of Louisiana. I work with individuals, couples and families with a wide range of struggles including anxiety, depression, communication issues, marital problems, grief, loss and many others. I believe the client is the expert in their own life and I am simply a tool to help facilitate a healing process. I have a drive to help people see through the darkness life can create by fostering a safe environment built on trust, empathy and understanding.

Growth and change can be scary and painful, but we do not have to walk the path alone. We often hear the saying “look on the bright side,” but when you can’t see the light I will be here to sit with you in the dark until we find it together.

We will walk through this time together.

I currently have a Bachelor’s degree in Psychology and am now in the Marriage and Family Therapy Master’s Program at ULM. I work with individuals, couples, and families in a wide range of struggles like anxiety, depression, grief, and so much more.

Scarlett Stansbury

Marriage and Family Therapy Student Intern


About Scarlett

No matter what brought you to this point, I want to take a moment to tell you that you are brave, and you are enough. You have made it this far, and that is no small feat. With that being said, I want to be here to help you take that next step, whatever that looks like for you. Whatever struggles you’re facing, you should not have to face them alone! Life is hard enough without us trying to bear that burden all on our own. Whether you’re feeling depressed, anxious, or you’re just in a tough season right now, I offer a range of therapeutic approaches to fit your needs. Everyone is different so your journey may not look like someone else’s, and that’s okay. I am here for you.

I have a B.A in Psychology and I’m currently pursuing a Master’s in Marriage and Family Therapy. After I graduate, I plan to work towards dual licensure as an LPC and an LMFT. I don’t believe therapy is a cure-all that will magically fix everything. I believe therapy is an instrument that can be very helpful when given the chance. My hope and my goal is to support my clients while giving them a safe space to heal, grow, and strive to be their best selves. I want you to feel good about yourself and your life. You deserve it.
