About Me

I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker with a Bachelor and Master's degree from Florida State University. I graduated in 2007 and have dedicated my life to helping others over the past 11 years. I have specialized experience in couples work, grief and loss, addiction and compulsive disorders, as well as working with children and teenagers. For the past two years, I have worked as a counselor for the Army and Air Force. I have a wealth of knowledge and experience regarding the military lifestyle and the unique challenges service members and their families face.

My hope is to provide a safe and nurturing place for you to share your thoughts and struggles. It can be scary to reach out for help when we are feeling sad or overwhelmed. I use a personable, open approach with clients and focus on tangible goals that can be implemented to improve your quality of life. My therapeutic modalities include cognitive-behavioral therapy, brief solution-focused therapy, as well as narrative and art therapies. I believe creativity serves as one of life's greatest gifts to restore healing. I also believe that we are our own best helper, and I will support you in your own journey to healing and happiness. Congratulations on taking the first step in improving your life! It would be my honor to serve as your companion and confidante.

Emily is a phenomenal listener and offers sound advice. She has taught me that I really do have the strength within myself to move forward and overcome any obstacle that is thrown my way. She has taught me the value of speaking positive truth to myself. Thank you Emily for patience and wisdom.

This was my first time seeking counseling and I truly appreciated the experience with Emily. It was clear she took the time to review the information I provided in my profile and I felt comfortable sharing more about what I was going through. Emily provided wonderful guidance on how to start understanding my issues and I would definitely recommend her as a counselor!
