Emile has been absolutely amazing so far….I have only had 2 sessions but so far she has addressed and validated my concerns which is something that needed to happen. She had given good advice on how to solve some of these issues. We will see how it all turns out. I very much appreciate Emilie.

Emilie is a great therapist. She listens and makes suggestions without forcing anything. It's very cathartic to have someone allow me to talk about everything on my mind.
