Amariah Love, MS, NCC, LPC is a licensed professional counselor offering mental health counseling to adults and adolescents.

She is also a writer, speaker, sensitivity reader, and expert contributor specializing in LGBTQIA+ issues, non-traditional relationships, disability, and chronic illness.

“The curious paradox is that when I accept myself just as I am, then I can change.” – Carl Rogers

Amariah’s style as a counselor is direct, empathetic, and authentic. She utilizes a holistic approach that centers the client as the expert of their own life and honors their unique perspectives, needs, and identities.

As a queer, disabled non-binary person, she draws heavily from social justice perspectives and recognizes the influence of systemic marginalization. She believes that everybody has the right to live a fulfilling life, and that everybody deserves access to quality mental healthcare.

“Perhaps the biggest tragedy of our lives is that freedom is possible, yet we can pass our years trapped in the same old patterns…We may want to love other people without holding back, to feel authentic, to breathe in the beauty around us, to dance and sing. Yet each day we listen to inner voices that keep our life small.”  ―Tara Brach, Radical Acceptance: Embracing Your Life With the Heart of a Buddha
