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 kind, caring, and asks the important questions. She looks deep and is very perceptive in her analyses — sometimes off of limited information. I would recommend her to anyone.

Emily is a kind person who tries to make the most of therapy sessions getting to know her clients and helping with their concerns. We have messages outside of our sessions and she has been incredibly supportive through difficult times. She has helped me manage my anxiety and depression on a persons level and helped me be a better support to my family.
