Hello and welcome. My name is Emily and I am here to help you.

Have you struggled to make yourself a priority? Have you wanted more, but accepted less? Do you worry that you didn’t make the right choices, and now it’s “too late”? Sometimes we know what no longer serves us, but we feel too afraid to let go, and it feels painful just to say it out loud. Now, (really) take a moment and imagine what life could look and feel like if you loved yourself enough to embrace the fear that comes with change. In this imaginary moment- if you felt more alive, even for a second, you have what it takes to turn a moment into a way of life, and I can help you get there.

Therapy can be transformative with the right practitioner. It is a relationship like no other because we are both on a journey in which we collaborate to recognize your authentic wants, investigate the blockages, and make real behavioral and thought-related changes to make life more meaningful to you.

I take a very active role in treatment by engaging fully, sharing my thoughts and meeting you where you’re at in your struggles. I have expertise in individual psychotherapy (adolescents and adults), marriage and couples counseling. I have post-graduate training in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy, Imago Relationship Therapy and Feminist-focused Psychotherapy. I like to say that I don’t apply any one treatment method to the client(s). Rather, their unique therapeutic needs bring out the treatment methods within me.

It is my privilege to support you in your wellness journey.
