I have over 15 years of experience providing assessments, consultation and psychotherapy for pregnant women, young children and their families around anxiety, depression, behavioral issues and trauma .
Becoming a parent is a unique and transformative experience. From the moment of conception through the journey of parenting there is an array of unknown rewards, challenges and experiences. At times parents have no idea how they will feel or react to these challenges and realize that they need help and support through their own journey as parents. Research proves the way we were parented, the environment in which we developed, and the situations around us influence the way we feel and behave as parents.

I hold a certificate in Somatic Experiencing (SE); a trauma healing modality that integrates bio-physiology to resolve stress and trauma .
Therapy is a partnership. Together, we work gently with the body, mind, and emotional experience to reduce and heal troubling symptoms. I invite into our sessions the parts of us that facilitates perceiving, thinking, sensing, feeling, remembering, imagining, expressing, connecting, and relating. I support clients to become more aware of different aspects of themselves - those aspects that support and contribute to their well-being, and those that constrain or stagnate their potential. Together, we work towards mind-body integration for renewed purpose and well-being. I offer a free 20 minute consultation.

What lies below? Buried treasure! Lets explore! PTSD , depression and anxiety are only the ancient protectors who helped us survive our early challenges.
Where has all the fun gone? Does that seem like an irrelevant question when we are drowning in troubles? Or could it be the essential one? When we lose ourselves to conditioned fear and pain and self -limiting beliefs, we lose that crucial access to our authentic desires, needs and natural creative power. Through play and wonder we can rediscover these buried treasures and permit them to guide us on a course of deep choice-rich fulfillment.

Hello! My name is Emily Linaman and I want to help you work with your strengths, and identify behaviors and patterns that may hold you back from growing into the best version of yourself. Old habits die hard, especially when they are related to past trauma survival skills and other coping mechanisms that no longer serve you. As I earn your trust, I hope we can explore how certain behaviors and habits lead to numbing out, depression, dissociation, isolation, self-sabotage and self-harm. Together, we can explore defense mechanisms, the functions they serve, and try out new coping skills to release you from the past and set you free.

I specialize in working with adult survivors of trauma , PTSD and abuse.
As a psychotherapist, I work to create a warm and safe environment where it is possible for you to be seen and understood. In my work I combine insight oriented talking therapy, with more cutting edge Somatic and Energy therapies. I will help you explore your beliefs and unconscious/habitual responses that are born from your original relationships. In exploring the positive and negative ways in which these beliefs and responses play out in your interpersonal relationships, you will understand yourself in new ways. It is out of this context that healing can take place.

Our work together is trauma -safe and focused on enjoyment.
It's been a long time since you felt peaceful, present, and comfortable- if ever. Your brain is always going–worried about the future, criticizing yourself about the past, & highly sensitive to how you think people are responding to you in the present. The script playing in your head affects your body, too, with tension in your muscles, uneasiness in your gut, and a heartbeat that amps up at the drop of a hat. You can barely remember what it's like to be relaxed; just getting through the day takes work and sleep is hard to come by. Now it's impacting your health, work, parenting, and relationships. It's hard not to feel hopeless.
