Amber Madden, MA, LPCA
I provide services for everyone around the United States through telehealth, virtual counseling platforms. My approach focuses on the concepts of Intuitive (Mindful) Eating and a Health At Every Size perspective. My goal is to help clients identify destructive, problematic eating habits and develop normalized eating behaviors. For some individuals (those who overeat, binge or yo-yo diet) this could translate to weight loss. However, for others who restrict, this could mean learning to accept your body at it's natural size. We will work on learning what "normal" eating looks like, as well as learning strategies for loving your body and yourself more. My philosophy is a NON DIET approach, free of stressful time lines and learning to incorporate ALL foods in moderation. ~ Amber Bio: Amber has been working in the mental health field since 2008. She has a Bachelor's degree in Psychology from University of the Cumberlands and a Master's degree in Counseling Psychology from Union College of Kentucky. She is a Licensed Counseling Professional Associate (LPCA) certified by the Kentucky Board of Counseling. She is a member of the Association for Applied Sport Psychology, and is certified in Eating Disorders & Obesity from Northern Illinois University. Amber also belongs to the professional organization, the Kentucky Counseling Association. She has spent her career working with both children and adults in a variety of treatment settings. Amber is skilled in treating various mental health issues and has maintained most of her career as an addictions specialist. She utilizes her skills in addiction to assist her clients in identifying destructive habits, "food addictive" patterns, and develop a positive approach to overall health and wellness. She has a passion for assisting clients in achieving their healthy goals and learning to love nutritious foods and exercise. Amber provides a safe, caring and comfortable environment to promote healing. Her approach is nonjudgmental and her goal is to help you feel at ease while exploring a new path to wellness.

Frequently Asked Questions

Will I lose weight from this program?
This program is NOT a diet or short term weight loss program. The purpose of Healthy Eating Basics Bootcamp is to provide participants with the skills they need to make lasting changes in their life. There are many reasons why focusing on weight is not helpful in goal achievement - many of which will be covered in the program. It is my hope, by developing new skills and strategies for healthful living, that you are able to become the best version of yourself. For some, that might transcend to weight loss. For others, that might mean learning to love your body more for the beautiful shape it already is.
Is this program for someone that has an eating disorder?
No, This program is not a treatment program. Individuals with eating disorders require specialized treatment and intervention provided by a qualified mental health professional. If you feel you are suffering from an eating disorder, please contact Amber Madden for individual services or for referral to an appropriate care provider. However, this program may be helpful for those with disordered eating issues, such as: food addictive tendencies, emotional eating, stress eating, overeating, picky eating or someone just wanting to improve their health and eating behaviors.
