Emily Kaufman is not currently accepting new clients.
Are you looking at everyone else's Facebook posts and Instagram pictures and wondering if you're the only one who doesn't have it all figured out?? Are you feeling stuck? Anxious? Depressed? You're not alone. And no, it doesn't have to be like this. Let's take some time to explore what's in your way and blocking you from being your full self, content and at ease in your skin. Admitting you're unhappy is not easy. Asking for help takes true courage. But being happy is worth the work... and it is possible. I'd love to join you on your journey and support you to make the needed shifts in yourself, your relationships and your life.
I specialize in family therapy and couples counseling and have a passion for working with individuals who want to improve their relationships in their personal, work, and family lives. I have extensive training in Couples and Family Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Mindfulness techniques and will tailor treatment to fit your specific needs.
During our work together, we'll examine the complex identities that have shaped you into the person you are today, including your role in your family, your cultural background, your racial and gender identity, etc. You'll gain insight to understand the patterns that led you to this point and the tools needed to make the changes you desire.
