About Me

One of my greatest pleasures of being a counselor is the honor of witnessing and helping a client along their personal journey to a life worth living. I assist my clients, which include adolescents and adults, to find healthy perceptions of themselves, identify skills, and strengthen their relationships to find peace, hope, and joy.

There is no single approach for every client, and I have been trained in a range of modalities including Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, and client centered techniques.

I have a Master’s degree in Counseling from the University of Mississippi. I have a B.A. in Psychology from The University of Memphis. I have been practicing as an outpatient therapist in community and private clinic settings since 2013. I am a Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor (LPCC) in Minnesota, a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) in Wisconsin, and a Certified Clinical Mental Health Counselor (CCMHC). I have just recently moved to the sunny Southwest - Albuquerque, New Mexico to be exact! So if you're in MN or WI I'm just an hour behind. :)

I look forward to talking with you and helping you on your journey towards the life you want.

Emily is a breath of fresh air, she has a positive upbeat approach and is very supportive and helps me believe in myself. I'm looking forward to working with her more :)

Written by C.A. on Oct 09, 2021 after therapy with Emily for 3 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, career difficulties, and coping with life changes

Emily has been a huge help with improving my mental health. I feel very supported. She asks hard questions when they come up, which may sound like a negative, but it's not! It lets me know she's really keyed in to my struggles and priorities. She asks the questions that present themselves through our discussions. Truly appreciate her.

Emily is always open she never uses judgment she’s very encouraging and I love how she reminds me when I haven’t been making contact I appreciate the reminders they are subtle but effective

Emily is an amazing counselor. She listens to me, is supportive, and is never judgmental. I was lucky to have found Emily and I would recommend her to anyone!

We have only had two sessions so far, but she has made me incredibly comfortable and I feel like I can be open and honest with her. She is great at listening and responding to what I am saying. I look forward to continuing to work with her.

Emily asks great questions and promotes self care.

Written by M.I. on Jul 28, 2021 after therapy with Emily for 1 month on issues concerning relationship issues, intimacy-related issues, and coping with life changes

Emily was really helpful in getting me un-stuck. I struggle with changing relationship issues and was somewhat depressed and felt hopeless. She helped me find my strength and empowered me with some really good tools and experience. She is kind, thoughtful, and a joy to have on my side. I was not her first rodeo :) Mike - Wisconsin

Written by S.H. on Mar 16, 2021 after therapy with Emily for 11 months on issues concerning stress, anxiety, career difficulties, and coping with life changes

Emily is absolutely amazing. She is kind, smart, reliable, knowledgeable and wise. No matter what my problems are she listens and provides non-judgemental, compassionate counselling which really helps. She is also a lot of fun to work with and very relatable! I have made so much progress since working with her and really appreciate her work.

Written by L.A. on Feb 02, 2021 after therapy with Emily for 7 months on issues concerning depression, relationship issues, and self esteem

Emily is very understanding and patient. She is very empathetic and offers ways forward when you need or request them. She has been a tremendous support, even just being there and having someone to reassure me I'm not completely insane for feeling the way I do.

Written by M.I. on Feb 01, 2021 after therapy with Emily for 10 months on issues concerning depression, and self esteem

Emily has been amazing. She is understanding, caring, and very genuine. She makes you feel comfortable and understood. Thank you so much, Emily!
It's been an absolute pleasure working with you.

I have been to different therapists, but I’ve never ever met someone like Emily. She genuinely cares about all your concerns and helps you in many different ways. I’ve had her for almost a year now, and I feel so comfortable talking to her about literally anything.
It’s like talking to a friend who really really gets you and there is no judgement. I don’t know what I would do without her!
I love her and I highly recommend her!

Written by B.E. on Jan 22, 2021 after therapy with Emily for 1 year and 4 months on issues concerning stress, anxiety, and trauma and abuse

I greatly appreciate the support she has been to me. I have been through a rollercoaster of life issues, but I feel stronger and more confident now than when I first started. She is wonderful. Thank you!

Written by R.E. on Oct 31, 2020 after therapy with Emily for 6 months on issues concerning stress, anxiety, and relationship issues

Emily is so awesome. She’s understanding and insightful, and totally gets me. She’s also fun and easy to talk to.

Written by A.L. on Oct 10, 2020 after therapy with Emily for 1 year and 2 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, lgbt, family conflicts, trauma and abuse, grief, self esteem, and career difficulties

Emily is so good at building a rapport, and proving her trustworthiness. In fact, I am hesitant to give her "credit" because she has done such a good job convincing me that I'm the one who deserves credit for the hard work of getting better and healthier. That said, I would not have gotten as far alone, but only with Emily's help. She's amazing!

Written by A.N. on Oct 02, 2020 after therapy with Emily for 6 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, and self esteem

I really love her. She is so not judgmental, but also calls me out on my BS (in a compassionate way). She’s also young and cool and amazing.

Written by T.E. on Aug 13, 2020 after therapy with Emily for 5 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, self esteem, and coping with life changes

Written by K.Y. on Aug 12, 2020 after therapy with Emily for 2 months on issues concerning stress, anxiety, and trauma and abuse

Emily is warm, genuine, and professional. She asks just the right questions to help you untangle your thoughts and feelings. She is non-judgmental. I would highly recommend her to anyone who is looking for a therapist.

Emily is super awesome! She has helped me so much already and her worksheets are totally worth doing because it gave me insight on my own issues.

Written by E.L. on Apr 11, 2020 after therapy with Emily for 3 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, addictions, and intimacy-related issues

Emily is friendly and approachable, but also makes sure to subtly steer and keep me focused on goals and results as well as talking through feelings and issues that come up between sessions. She's great!

Written by M.E. on Apr 10, 2020 after therapy with Emily for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, and stress, anxiety

Emily is really helping me through a tough time right now. It is so nice to have someone to talk to who is just a message away. I appreciate her more than she will ever know.

Written by C.O. on Apr 03, 2020 after therapy with Emily for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, self esteem, career difficulties, and adhd

Emily has been very responsive and understanding. She was willing to communicate primarily via writing when I explained that phone and video conversations can trigger my anxiety.

Emily was fantastic to work with. Always asked the right questions and helped me through a difficult time. Thanks for helping me find myself again.

Written by S.O. on Sep 24, 2019 after therapy with Emily for 2 months on issues concerning stress, anxiety, and coping with life changes

Emily is professional and genuine. I’m not a very open person, but I trust writing about what’s bothering me and being vulnerable to her. Her demeanor is gentle and she encourages you to take your time. If you’re afraid of therapy or have had sessions that left you feeling just okay, please talk to Emily. She’s amazing, really.

Written by C.A. on Jul 06, 2019 after therapy with Emily for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, and coping with life changes

Emily has been encouraging and sympathetic without judgement towards me. Which was the scariest part about starting.
