The Highlands Eating Disorder Treatment Center Blog

Staff Spotlight: Amber Parris

Your role at The Highlands:  Therapist :) I listen, I support, I challenge, I laugh with, and do all things that involve encouraging humans to be the most real version of themselves.   The thing you love most about working at The Highlands: I can’t choose---I know everyone says that but I truly mean that I equally love working with clients as they journey back towards living a full life. It truly is an honor to be in this position. I also could *not* do this without the support and wisdom from the team. The team makes the work with clients possible…and they are just fun people   What brings you joy and happiness in your life: Lately, my happiness comes from the small things. My mantra this year is to “Find the daily good.” because I have come to believe that it is the small, daily things that create days that string together to create a deeper meaning in life—happiness and JOY.   Your favorite quote: "For what it’s worth: it’s never too late or, in my case, too early to be whoever you want to be. There’s no time limit, stop whenever you want. You can change or stay the same, there are no rules to this thing. We can make the best or the worst of it. I hope you make the best of it. And I hope you see things that startle you. I hope you feel things you never felt before. I hope you meet people with a different point of view. I hope you live a life you’re proud of. If you find that you’re not, I hope you have the courage to start all over again." - F. Scott Fitzgerald   6 things you could never do without: People I love, God, food + fellowship, fresh air, REALness   Last song you listened to Ooh La La by Faces   Describe Amber in 3 words:  devoted, empathic, exquisite - Amy Claire Grisham
