Hi! My name is Emily. I recognize that talking about the issues which can deeply impact everyday life can be intimidating at times. I am a Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor in the state of Ohio. I am also a clinical supervisor and enjoy mentoring others. I have over 8 years of experience in multiple community settings providing therapy for individuals and families. I have experience working with clients who suffer from depression and anxiety, those who are experiencing stress in their lives due to change or traumatic events, and those experiencing relationship or career issues.
I have a warm, flexible, and person-centered approach. I will seek to understand first and also support you in achieving your goals. I have an eclectic style and use a combination of motivational interviewing, cognitive behavioral therapy, principles of dialectical behavioral therapy, and ACT. I am here to support you, to help generate solutions, and to provide feedback and encouragement. Small, positive changes add up and we will celebrate them! I also recognize the impact that trauma can have on individuals and family systems and provide treatment through a trauma-informed lens.
I am a Christian and my faith plays an important role in my life. I am open to faith-based counseling if you choose and will respect your personal beliefs.
It takes courage to reach out and seek help and I'm so grateful that you took that step. I am here to help you use the strengths you already have to make meaningful and practical shifts in both mindset and actions. I am so excited for us to begin working together.
Please note that I am only licensed in Ohio and therefore am only able to provide services to clients who are residing in Ohio.

Emily is by far the best counselor I have ever had. She doesn't JUST listen to you, she pushes you to the next level, in the most caring way possible!

Emily is very compassionate, a good listener and very caring. I feel her advice will be very helpful as our sessions continue.

She’s great and very dynamic in her approach. I never felt like I was being funneled into a particular therapy routine. She listens and adjusts based on your dialog and needs.

From day one, Emily really grasped my struggles and found ways to help me look past my own mental stumbling blocks. Though I was only able to participate for a few weeks, she helped me more than my years of therapy before her. She never leaves your side and fights with you to get to a better frame of mind whether it be during live sessions or check-ins throughout the week. I would absolutely recommend counseling with Emily if you are looking for non judgmental, open-minded, and therapeutic sessions.

Emily is great! She takes the time to get to know you and doesn’t rush you or put any pressure on you. She gives helpful tips and lets you work them in at your own pace.
