About Ambria

  “Do more than belong: participate. Do more than care: help. Do more than believe: practice. Do more than be fair: be kind. Do more than forgive: forget.Do more than dream: work.”  William Arthur Ward

Early as Ambria can remember she has always been drawn to people experiencing difficulties. “In church as a child I remember watching people come up to the altar. They were broken, hurt, hungry and hopeless” “They wanted answers, a solution”. “Their eyes would be full of tears, and my eyes would be full of tears watching them”. This made such a great impact on Ambria’s life that she decided to pursue a career devoted to helping the wounded, the distressed, the despondent and the suffering.

Ambria have experienced her own personal suffering and struggles that have prepared and shaped her into who she is today. Being a single woman, the divorce of her parents, being a “preacher’s kid”, her intimate relationships, struggles that come with education, the murderer of her very close cousin, and broken friendships. With much sacrifice and consequences these experiences have prepared and shaped her into the selfless, caring and committed woman she is today. Experiences have drawn Ambria to seek answers from Gods about his sovereignty during suffering in the lives of others.

Everyone has experiences and issues that are hard to overcome. Life sometimes presents us with losses, instability, and disappointments that affect who we are. “My desire to help others process those experiences and work towards responding to them in a more healthy way”.  Ambria made a vow to the Lord that she would serve others by taking on their deepest longings, desires, and secrets that lay in their hearts. She counts it an honor that God would trust her with the hearts and lives of his children.

As a part of the journey of “helping others”, Ambria obtained her Bachelors Degree in Social Work from Temple University, Phila, Pa;  Masters of Science in Christian Counseling from Cairn University, Langhorne, Pa; and is currently pursuing Licensure for Professional Counselors in the state of Pennsylvania. Ambria has over 1,000 hours of group and individual counseling experience with: victims of domestic violence,  crisis intervention; mothers of murdered children; mental health issues such as depression, bipolarity and OCD; also hospice, end of life and grief issues to name a few. She is currently the Director of Services at a facility in New jersey. She has also investigated cases of physical and sexual abuse, neglect, and financial exploitation amongst seniors for the city of Philadelphia.

Ambria is a worship leader at her church, which fulfills her passion with music. She enjoys time with family and friends. She currently has goals to further her education in the near future and to do missionary work overseas.

  2. Hey Bria – I thank God for the love and compassion you have for those who are hurting. The work you do is extremely corrosive and I pray that God will continually keep a hedge of protection around you (mind, body, spirit and soul) to keep you from being consumed by the fire you WILLINGLY walk through day after day. I’m so proud of you and I love and miss you and “the girls” much much much. SMOOCHEZ!!!

  4. Hi Ambria,
    I love your blog. I’m in the process of putting together Christian testimonies on my blog. If you have yours written down, would you mind if I “borrowed” it? I would need to copy and paste it directly to my blog for a full effect. It would be part of a group that would be listed under a “Testimonies” Page at the top of my blog.
    God Bless,
    robin claire
