About Me

Hi I'm Emily. I am a Licensed Independent Clinical Social worker with over 15 years of experience working with couples to feel better about themselves and their relationships. I have treated couples struggling with communication issues, infidelity, infertility, depression, anxiety, marital conflict, and substance use disorders. I believe good mental health is the foundation for a life well lived. Together we will work on where you and your partner feel "stuck" and find a way forward.

My counseling style is kind, authentic and supportive. It is important to me that you feel heard and respected. I have extensive training in trauma informed approaches but use other modalities of care (Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, DiaIectical Behavioral Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, Mindfulness & others) depending on the challenge. There is no one size fits all method. I will tailor our work together to meet your unique and special needs. I am confident that our conversations will be transformative and helpful.

I look forward to hearing from you!

Written by K.Y. on Apr 05, 2021 after counseling with Emily for 1 month on issues concerning relationship

My partner and I sought out counseling for communication troubles. We were both enthusiastic to work on our relationship, but didn't quite know where to begin. Emily was the perfect match. Throughout our sessions, she has guided us to a better understanding of ourselves as a couple and as individuals. Her wealth of knowledge and experience is evident in her approach to counseling: she is incredibly compassionate, insightful, easy to talk to, sensitive, warm and helpful. She has allowed my partner and I to improve our communication, gain understanding for each other and strengthen the foundations of our relationship. She has guided us to tangible solutions to issues we experience and has taught us new tools to implement going forward in our relationship. Emily has provided us with an abundance of resources and has tailored our experience to be as best as it can be. Both my partner and I feel understood and optimistic after our sessions with Emily, and we are so grateful to have been paired with her.

Emily has helped my partner in I feel more confident and optimistic about our relationship and ourselves just after our first session. Her approach is very thoughtful and understanding, and this has helped us understand ourselves in ways we hadn’t considered. We look forward to talking to Emily every week. Shes excellent!
