“Life shrinks or expands in proportion to one’s courage.” - Anais Nin
Emily believes that engaging in talk therapy can be one of the most courageous steps a person can take in their journey to self-discovery, healing, wellness, and hope. Emily uses humor and empathy to build a strong therapeutic relationship from which to offer validation and support for her clients. Emily approaches therapy from a strengths-based perspective, working with each individual to gain insight into their lives and find the strength and courage to work through life’s challenges and suffering to find healing and live authentic whole-hearted lives.
