"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."

"Where has all the fun gone? Does that seem like an irrelevant question when we feel we are drowning in troubles? Or could it be the essential one? When we lose ourselves to depression, trauma, or relationship upheaval we lose that crucial access to our authentic desires, needs and power. Our ability to rediscover these buried treasures can be the key to healing, satisfaction, empowerment, self-trust and most of all--abundant choice."

"It can feel awkward to start the counseling process, trust me, I've been there. But my office is a warm and safe place for anyone to open up without fear of judgment. I work with adults, teens, families, and couples who are looking to navigate difficult life changes or strengthen themselves. I often see people come in depressed, angry, or anxious about a difficult experience and are often at a loss for how to manage the experience. Life can get hard or bring up some challenging things, and I want to provide a nonjudgmental but focused environment to approach whatever comes up along the way. "

"The thought of starting therapy can feel overwhelming. Sometimes we are ashamed to ask for help, or embarrassed by what we are seeking help for. The truth is, though, that in order to move forward, we have to face those things that are causing our pain and unhappiness. And sometimes we need help to do that. Asking for help takes courage. Allowing oneself to be vulnerable takes strength."
