About Me

Welcome to Boyertown Marriage and Family Therapy. Amber Berkoski is the owner and operator of BMFT. Amber always knew she wanted to work with families. She comes from a rather large and blended one herself, and when asked will often say family therapy chose her - rather than the other way around.

 

Amber founded Boyertown Marriage and Family Therapy as a local practice offering therapy services to individuals, couples, and families with specialties in trauma and children with emotional disorders.

 

Amber is a licensed marriage and family therapist and earned her Bachelor’s degree in psychology when she was raising her babies at home. She followed this up with full time work in community mental health while she completed her Master’s degree in marriage and family therapy and Doctorate degree in Counselor Education & Supervision. Amber graduated with distinction in 2011, 2014, and 2019 respectively, with some bags under her eyes but she has never regretted the balance between career and family.

 

In the years since earning a graduate degree, Amber received her certification in EcoSystemic Structural Family Therapy from the Philadelphia Child and Family Guidance Center and is trained in Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. She also practices Solution-Focused Brief Therapy and utilizes many tenets from Multi-Cultural Therapy to address the needs of diverse families.

 

Amber  gained clinical and supervisory experience working with at-risk youth and their families in her community. She also has two years experience educating student-therapists at the graduate level to do the same work she so loves.

 

Wherever you find her, Amber is immersed in families from all sides and enjoys every moment she gets to spend with her own.
