Hi! My name is Emily. I am a growing therapist that hopes to continue helping others even if it may be a minuscule amount. I am passionate about working with adolescents, the LGBTQIA+ community and those struggling with grief or loss.
I enjoy incorporating interests into therapy. For example, do you enjoy video games, art, poetry or music? We can use that! I aim to create a safe and comfortable space for my clients. I truly believe that people can thrive in therapy when it is developed for them specifically.
In addition to incorporating interests, I believe in using a variety of modalities to treat my clients. I use cognitive behavioral therapy, acceptance and commitment therapy, mindfulness and self-compassion. I continue to learn and grow so that I may best serve my clients on their path to healing!
