Welcome! I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in the state of Texas. I have experience working primarily with adolescents, young adults, and adults. I have worked with clients with a wide range of clinical concerns, such as depression, anxiety, stress management, relationship issues, and trauma. I currently practice as a school counselor for middle to high school aged students. I am well-versed with what teens face on a daily basis.
My style of counseling is creating a warm, therapeutic relationship first and foremost. I believe change cannot be possible unless there is safety and trust between therapist and client. I am encouraging, warm, and will meet you where you are at. I want to be a gentle guide in helping you achieve your goals. I want you to know you are not a burden, and I am honored for the chance to work together. Teens especially usually do not feel heard or valued, but I want to be here to honor and validate your experiences.
My counseling style combines aspects of cognitive-behavioral therapy, solution-focused, and strength-based approach. I also have a holistic view of people and consider many aspects of life, such as family, relationships, and school.
Ultimately, as a therapist, I want clients to know how much worth and value they already possess inside of them. I want to help my clients discover and develop the coping skills, strengths, and qualities they already have to obtain their goals.
You are taking the first step to change and a healthier self, and I would be honored to be on this journey with you!

Emily is very warm and caring. She is very good at explaining how I’m feeling and justifying it in a way where it opens up my perspective. It’s nice hearing it from an outside perspective. She has a good memory too! Each week, I would circle back to a previous conversation or something that I’ve mentioned, and she would remember and talk about it with me. It’s nice to have someone be able to relate to me and understand my point of view with certain situations. When I’m showing raw feelings or when I cry, she is patient with me. I love having Emily as my therapist! I’m so happy with being matched with her!
Emily is very empathetic and caring. She asks questions that help you to think through life in a different way, and provides guidance in making manageable change!
