Amber Henin

LPC, Abri Clinician


Amber Henin (she/her) is a Licensed Professional Counselor and Certified Alcohol and Drug Counselor. She holds degrees from University of Oregon and Lewis & Clark College. Amber enjoys working with couples, adults, and teens. While attachment, existentialism, and ACT are the core theories through which she treats all of her clients, she utilizes EFT and the lens of Esther Perel for couples therapy.

Amber has worked in both community and private practice settings. Most recently, she served the Seattle, WA community as a Clinical Specialist for Harborview Medical Center where she treated those struggling with addiction, mood, eating and body image disorders. She has facilitated body/sex-positive groups in California, Washington, Oregon and Japan.

Amber believes life is quite weird and certainly has its challenges. This messiness is what fuels her passion as a therapist. She encourages her clients to lean into the grayness of the human experience with scientific curiosity and laughter while supporting client’s healthy boundary-setting. A Southern California native, Amber has recently returned to Portland with her partner after living in Seattle. She enjoys food, romantic nihilism, dogs, trail runs and learning a thing or two. She is excited to be entering the world of Radically Open DBT with her fellow Abri clinicians.
