**Unfortunately I cannot accept new clients at this time. If my profile speaks to you, consider reaching out to Emily Swayne, the Mental Health Practitioner at my practice.** In my practice, I strive to get to know your authentic story. I welcome individuals, couples and adult families, and am especially committed to serving the geek community, and anyone who considers themselves outside of the mainstream. My style is casual and relaxed, yet challenging. I believe that the bond between therapist and client is more important than any theoretical/philosophical stance. That said, I take a mainly narrative approach to therapy.

I am not currently accepting new clients. I've been in the mental health field for over 25 years and still strive to keep my "beginner's mind". I have a psychodynamic orientation (which means I believe that the relationship between the therapist and you is an important part of the process). My work is informed by many things, including the Buddhist principal that suffering comes from attachment to things we often aren't aware of or simply don't know how to let go of. I've found it helpful to use various wisdom resources, poetry, and humor in therapy.

I use cognitive behavioral therapy to help people improve their mental health. I believe that each person deserves treatment tailored to their experience and needs. In session, I help people change patterns of unhealthy thoughts or behaviors and examine meaning of life experiences. As a counselor, I am open-minded, analytical, and casual while allowing space for challenging clients to improve their lives. I practice from an informed consent perspective aimed at reducing barriers to care and emphasizing bodily autonomy. This often involves writing letters of support for medical transition services.

I’m Emily- a therapist for the mystics and misfits; the creatives and cynics; the outcasts and openminded; the artistic and awkward; the hippies and the highly sensitive!

When you step into my office or enter into a teletherapy session with me you can expect to find yourself in a safe space filled with compassion, empathy, warmth, and probably even the use of humor at times.

Working with people overwhelmed by trauma, depressed, anxious, or simply stuck, is a passion of mine. Why? Because I have found in both my own life & professional experience that, paradoxically, these painful areas of our life can offer us opportunity for personal growth and understanding ourselves. To be clear, this is not easy, and takes lots of courage. It's a journey, a practice, which leads to self-compassion & a healthy way to live authentically in the world. In a relationship of trust, I will support & challenge you to find your own inner wisdom, your own answers to wholehearted living.

I believe that self-exploration with a compassionate, non-judgmental presence is a powerful experience which results in deep, lasting change. Often times, our experience of the world and ourselves can feel vaguely yet urgently unsatisfying. Sometimes we unconsciously live in a reality which no longer feels like it "fits", but we know therapy is about being empowered to see yourself and the world in new, exciting ways. You don't have to feel stuck in how you experience life. We can work together to experience life more fully. (For efficient scheduling purposes, please email rather than call)

I consider the bigger picture beyond the individual. I think about the family system, the environment in which the person/family is in, parenting styles and implications, generational trauma, systemic racism, and larger society, etc. I believe that the client is the expert on themselves and having someone listen to understand can be helpful to process, reflect, and work through conflict. I am really passionate about supporting family members through trauma and crisis, while increasing understanding and communication within the family unit.
