Welcome! I am Ambre (pronounced Amber) Hriso, LCSW founder of Better Wellness Counseling and Consulting LLC. I am a licensed clinical social worker in New Jersey and a trauma and grief specialist. After working in this field for several years, I identified a gap in most standard therapeutic services. Clients needed more than just talk therapy for relief of their symptoms. Don't get me wrong, therapy in general is a transformative and powerful experience. But sometimes we need a little bit more. Having spent quite a bit of time cultivating my skills as a therapist, I developed a trauma-informed practice focusing on specific treatments for trauma, grief, and loss. I utilize a somatic approach, supporting clients to prioritize regulation of their nervous systems, and education on how to maintain this balance daily. I hope my services bridges the gap between what you're looking for and where you ideally would like to be. I'm excited to learn more about you and how I can be of help!
Better Wellness Counseling and Consulting is a specialized practice serving clients and clinicians. Conveniently located in the town of Bedminster NJ, the office is accessible from several major highways. Sessions are provided in-person and through telehealth.
We are a trauma-informed practice that focuses solely on providing EMDR (eye movement desensitization and reprocessing) therapy, EMDR intensives and grief therapy. Most practices may focus on general counseling, however, our founder has spent time designing programs to serve individuals struggling with specific needs and issues. In addition to specialized therapy, we provide education and detailed planning keeping in mind the unique backgrounds and experiences of each client.
Ambre has been in the mental health field for almost a decade working with various organizations. Since the beginning of her career (and knowing very well where she wanted to go professionally), she cultivated her clinical skills in trauma and grief counseling. She has developed and implemented curriculum for various programs successfully, supervised clinical staff and students, and is constantly educating herself on the up-to-date techniques and tools to bring to the therapy room. She holds a clinical license in the state of New Jersey and is a Certified EMDR therapist through EMDRIA having provided over a thousand EMDR sessions over the last several years both in-person and virtually. In addition to running this practice, she is an EMDR consultant-in-training, Certified Thanatologist candidate through the Association for Death Education and Counseling and currently mentors students in their internships at a local university.
