Dr. Emily Christensen

(PhD, LPC, LCPC)

About Me


I am a doctoral level licensed clinical professional counselor. My education background includes a Bachelor of Science in Human Development, a Master of Science in Professional Counseling, and a Doctorate of Psychology in Marriage and Family Therapy. I have twenty years experience as a counselor, with two years experience providing counseling online, helping people navigate life, its hardships, and its challenges.

Some of my specialties include depression, anxiety, and mood disorders. I have also a great deal of experience working with those who have endured trauma and abuse. I also have extensive experience with VIP clients and high profile cases.

My counseling style is warm and interactive, but with positive accountability to encourage healthy changes. I believe in treating anyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion - no matter what emotional processing is being worked through or expressed. Having been originally trained in Jungian and narrative therapies in classic psychoanalysis, your story matters to me and matters in its telling. My approach also combines cognitive-behavioral, solution-focused, and rational-emotive counseling for a trauma-responsive approach that provides support and healing. Your treatment plan will be tailored to meet your unique and specific needs.

It takes courage to seek for a more fulfilling and happier life and to take the first steps towards a change. If you are ready to take that step I am here to support and empower you.

I look forward to working with you!

Dr. Christensen is very warm and thoughtful. She offers great insight into my predicaments and lets me work at my own pace. Highly recommend.
