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 just the best. She is empathetic, and never tries to push me further than I can go. And she also makes sure I know when I'm not going as far as I really can. That mix of bluntness and empathy is everything I ever wanted in a therapist, and is what I have found here!

Emily continues to be a viable part of my care. She really goes above and beyond to follow up with me and challenges me to be a better person.
