(Ph.D., LPC)

About Me

I believe that anyone is capable of creating positive change in their life regardless of the circumstances. By working together through the process of exploring and resolving psychological conflicts and challenges, achieving personal goals, and enacting lasting change can be attainable.

I enjoy working with a variety of people including individuals, children, couples, families, and groups. A special interest of mine is helping clients learn effective ways of coping with various forms of loss and life transitions that may be related to family, career, or health. In my practice, I focus on holistic health and overall wellbeing. I believe that exercise, nutrition, sleep, and other healthy lifestyle choices can be powerful influences in regulating mood, emotion, and are valuable contributors to better overall mental health.

My work is further dedicated to helping to emerge a personal narrative that is more realistic, positive, and empowering. I work from the cognitive-behavioral approach and am goal oriented in my practice. I am enthusiastic in helping you work toward your individual goals!

I earned my Bachelors degree in Psychology from the University of Minnesota in 2005, Master’s degree in Counseling and Psychological Services from Saint Marys University in 2009, and Ph.D. in Advanced Studies in Human Behavior at Capella University. I teach college-level Psychology courses I am also a certified in Pilates, Yoga, and group fitness.

My free time consists of spending time with family and friends, writing, reading, and staying as active and outdoors as much as possible.

Emily Stevenson and BetterHelp are helping me improve myself and my marriage. Daily interaction available 24/7 and communication through messaging vs verbal scheduled counseling is working for me.

Emily has demonstrated a remarkable ability to drill down to the root of the issue and help me realize the solution for myself. Instead of feeling like I am being buried by emotions, I feel like I can control my responses and take a break if I need one. The past few weeks working with Emily have helped me find new level of emotional stability.

Emily is very well-trained and actually helps with my challenges, no matter how specific or seemingly baseless they are. She checks up on me often and has sent me resources that I continue to reference when I feel I'm going down a darker path.

Emily Stevenson has been absolutely wonderful. I couldn't ask for better help. I was feeling completely lost and unhinged and scared when I came across BetterHelp and was introduced to Emily Stevenson.

I instantly felt comfortable and opened up and she has done a world of good for me and my life. She has helped me learn to regain control and also helping me to continue with better healthier habits for myself. I feel so much better and stronger as a person because of Emily and look forward to continuing this journey as she helps me continue to feel better everyday. I couldn't be more grateful and appreciative for this place and for Emily Stevenson.
