Accepting new clients in Tennessee and Ohio! Will be credentialed with BlueCross BlueShield of Tennessee in August 2024! I’m Emily and I work with teens and adults, navigating anxiety, depression, ADHD, OCD, gender exploration, neurodivergence, relationships, self-worth, sexuality, and trauma. As a queer identifying person, I am passionate about helping individuals within the LGBTQIA+ community, with specialized experience in transgender and nonbinary care. I have specific experience writing letters of support for transgender and nonbinary clients seeking Hormone Replacement Therapy and/or gender affirming surgery.
With warmth and care, I utilize a strength-based approach in my clinical practice, inviting clients to learn new ways to cope and navigate life’s challenges, while raising awareness of our own resiliency! I utilize Feminist and Queer theory techniques, as well as Acceptance and Commitment Therapy. Additionally, I am trained in EMDR for a variety of concerns.
In therapy with me, you will be met where you are at with empathy, softness, and gentleness. You will be validated, always be treated as the expert on your lived experiences, and given space to explore how to navigate life and healing. All discomfort leads to growth and this will be a safe and neutral space to move through those growing pains in connection.

In our first session, we will go over all of the basics of therapy (especially if it is a client's first time in therapy - if this is you, give yourself so much credit for this! It is a vulnerable leap to take!) and I will get to know you and what you're looking for from a therapeutic space. We will begin to build a relationship, with a foundation of trust, safety, and collaboration.
