Emily’s Psychotherapy Approach
I strongly believe that every person has the ability to access the power within themselves to foster change that supports a fulfilling life. My goals are to help my clients access their own truth that leads to their belief in this capability, find meaning in their struggles, and take control of their life choices.
Together we’ll explore how your experiences shape your worldview. We’ll develop strategies to cope with current stressors in a way that feels authentic to you. We’ll also work together to create the changes necessary to have the life you desire.
I have a genuine interest in each client’s story and what makes them unique. I am passionate about working with individuals to access their own strengths in order to develop meaningful relationships and create a life worth living.
Finding Meaning in Your Struggles
My therapeutic style uses collaboration, directness, authenticity, and humor to foster a safe connection where risks can be taken and change can emerge. My goal is to help clients find meaning in their struggles and take control of their life choices.
Who I Work With
I work well with young adults and families seeking support and healing related to life transitions, emotion regulation (including suicidal ideation and non-suicidal self-injury), LGBTQ+, parenting, family relationships, individuation, addiction and recovery, socialization, depression, anxiety, and grief.
