Amber Dittberner is an addictions counsellor in Winnipeg, Manitoba. She is known as “Addictions Counsellor Amber.” Her main focus is on counselling people with addictions, however she also helps with other issues such as anxiety and depression.
After achieving sobriety in 2011, Amber decided to focus on improving the lives of those living with problematic substance use by providing tools for assessment, goal-setting, strategies, education, and talk therapy. She supports accountability and offers Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) to help pave the road to recovery. As a recovered alcoholic herself, she states, “Helping others is so important both for myself and because I want others to break free from their addictions, too.”
