In my practice, I use the most evidence-based therapeutic approaches to date: Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy ( CBT ).
Hello! I appreciate you taking the time to view my page. Although I strive to do my best to help anyone who walks through my door, I have found that there are certain people I really seem to "click" with; after all, the therapist-client relationship is one of the most important parts of the therapy process. I have found that I work well with adolescents and young adults aged 16-30. I specialize in working with anxiety disorders, depressive disorders, and trauma. My "ideal" client comes to therapy willing to open up, work hard, and commit themself to behavioral change, pivoting towards what really matters to them deep in their heart.

I am intensively trained in Dialectical Behavior Therapy and rostered in Trauma Focused- Cognitive Behavioral Therapy.
Being human is complex and brings a plethora of emotions your way. There are highs, lows, twists, and turns. At times the emotion we experience is overwhelming and the natural urge is to resist the feeling, to push it all away. The struggle to resist painful emotions, thoughts, memories, etc. is exhausting. It is through acceptance that a person can begin healing, coping, and growing into their best self. I have experience working with PTSD, Anxiety, Depression, Borderline Personality Disorder, etc., allowing me to help others learn new ways of addressing unwanted emotions, thoughts, and behaviors.

Life and relationships are often made up of many unmet expectations. It is often natural to have an emotional reaction to the let-downs in life. “In therapy, our goal will be to learn to identify your desires, emotions and core beliefs so you can skillfully master your reactions to these disappointments and enhance your relationships.” Emily is trained and certified as a PREPARE/ENRICH facilitator, an assessment tool with substantial research used to help improve couple relationships. Her primary area of focus is on couples preparing for marriage or in early marriage.

I am trained in TF- CBT and have worked with children who are ADHD, ODD, anxious, depressed, or having adjustment issues including those in foster or adoptive homes.
Saying that the last year has been difficult would be an understatement. So much has changed in all spheres of our lives and we wonder if things will ever be back to normal. Add in other typical life challenges and we feel overwhelmed, worried, exhausted and drained. Of particular concern are our children who aren't typically equipped yet with coping skills to manage times like these. The increase in depression and anxiety children are feeling is significant. Because many of them don't know how to verbalize these feelings, they have meltdowns or act out more than normal. You, as the parent, are at your wits end. Sound familiar?

Relational in my approach, I also utilize evidenced based methodologies, such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy.
Life is hard. If the difficulties you face are overwhelming, having another person walk with you may make all the difference. Therapy can be a means to identify and overcome challenges in your life, and those of your loved ones, and provide you the healing and courage you need to live and love to the fullest. My experience treating issues including trauma, depression, anxiety, anger, spirituality, grief, men's issues, and marriage/relationships, enable me to accompany you through the dark seasons of your life, and help you find hope when it is hard to find.

I integrate mindfulness, spirituality, and self-care while utilizing cognitive behavioral and psychodynamic therapy techniques.
It is an honor to join someone’s personal journey as they address challenges and heal from past experiences. I work with clients who are motivated to work on those challenges which have kept them from achieving their personal and professional goals. Many of my clients are dealing with depression, anxiety, grief, relationship conflict, and trauma and have come to me seeking relief through validation, skills building, and adjusting their inner narrative. I also enjoy working with women and new mothers with postpartum depression, anxiety, and adjustment difficulties by offering solution focused support as well as traditional therapy.

The counseling techniques that I use include exploring core belief systems, understanding the place of emotions, promoting healthy decision-making, and discover ways to find and live up to their full potential by integrating the core insights of Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Cognitive /Behavioral Modalities and Depth Oriented Brief Therapy.
Life is hard-I imagine that is the last thing that you want to hear right now. But unless you assume a different perspective, you may miss some important things-like hope, grace, and compassion. In my 30 plus years as a licensed professional counselor, I have had the honor of walking with individuals and couples through life crises and transitions, seeing them with fresh eyes, an understanding heart, and strategic interventions (or behavioral “experiments”) as they discover a new life of purpose and meaning, with renewed personal energy and deepened relationships.

Cognitive Behavioral (CBT) Therapists
Cognitive-behavioral therapy stresses the role of thinking in how we feel and what we do. It is based on the belief that thoughts, rather than people or events, cause our negative feelings. The therapist assists the client in identifying, testing the reality of, and correcting dysfunctional beliefs underlying his or her thinking. The therapist then helps the client modify those thoughts and the behaviors that flow from them. CBT is a structured collaboration between therapist and client and often calls for homework assignments.
