About me

Welcome! My name is Emily and I am a licensed professional counselor in the states of Maine and Wisconsin. I have over 18 years of experience working in the mental health field. I have worked in a variety of settings including schools, residential, outpatient, in-home, and private practice.

I feel so committed to this kind of work; the ability to partner with others and help them see their strengths and abilities to empower them. I work to create a healing space where growth, understanding and change can occur.

I love the quote by Carl Jung, "We are not what happened to us, we are who we choose to become." This is what I think therapy is all about; helping people understand this and see their future, one that is full of hope and the ability to overcome the challenges and struggles that life can bring. This is not just a philosophy or modality of a treatment. It is a way of being and seeing in the world, a way of seeing the potential and nobility in anything or anyone.

Emily is amazing, in just a month she has asked me so many questions that have opened my eyes and cleared my mind. Emily reaches out to me outside my appointments and sends me helpful tips throughout the week to keep my track on progress. I really appreciate Emily and all she’s done for me!
