I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor with 22 years of experience counseling primarily adults in the state of Indiana. I believe in the practice of "unconditional positive regard," meaning I will never be judgmental or shaming during my time with you. Instead, I will be sincere, engaging, supportive and encouraging you in your journey towards a better you.
My experience in counseling includes those with Depression, Grief, Bipolar Disorder, Anxiety, ADHD, Relationship issues, Abuse (sexual and domestic), Shame-based Family of Origin issues, Co-Dependency, and Addictions.
In therapy I use a blend of Adlerian and Cognitive Behavioral therapies, which focuses on how our thinking, feeling, and behavior can drive dysfunctional living, and
conversely, how thoughts, feelings, and behaviors can be changed to produce a healthier, productive lifestyle. To that end, in addition to talk therapy, I use didactic, experiential, and the use of parables to help facilitate your progress. The use of "homework" I find keeps clients engaged in the therapy process while not in session.
If you choose to work with me, together we will make a plan of treatment based on your goals for seeking treatment, and I will walk with you every step of the way.
I am fully aware you have tried everything else before walking through the virtual door and I respect you for your courage in seeking help at this time.

Emily is amazing. I’ve been to a couple local therapists and I’ve never felt as comfortable as I do with Emily. I look forward to every session. She makes me feel heard and seen. The homework she assigns is very helpful. It’s been really eye opening to discover certain parts about myself that no one has ever helped me work through before.

Such a fantastic woman. Super duper nice and very understanding. Does her best to understand her patient and find what works best for them in their current situation. Assigns homework that she knows will help in the long run.
