"I was drawn to this profession by means of my own journey, which has gifted me the fortunate opportunity to access struggle, hardship, and loss. As humans, it is not a matter of ‘if’ we will encounter these less glamorous aspects of life, but ‘when’. Each of us has the innate capacity to work through these moments of change and transformation although, at times, that truth may feel impossible, false, or inadequate. My purpose as a practicing therapist is to unlock your inner power to regain control in your life within a nonjudgmental and confidential safe space. In fostering your unique abilities together through exploration, processing, and individualized modalities, it is my goal to empower you to aspire to your full potential."
Emily's clinical interests include working with anxiety, depression, trauma, grief and loss, life transitions, self-esteem, relationship issues, and anger management. She has previous experience working with clients ranging from 5-18 as well as immigrant, refugee, and Spanish speaking populations.
"Having worked with both individuals and family systems, I know that, often, the issues we seek support for affect (and are affected by) the types of connections we have with others. I carry my experience working with both macro and micro systems into my practice to engage in both top down and bottom up pathways for change."
