I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in the states of Maryland, Virginia, and Arizona. I graduated from Louisiana State University in Shreveport with my Masters in Counseling Psychology. For the past 15 years, I have been working with adults, adolescents, children and families from various backgrounds. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, anger management, relationship issues, ADHD, and trauma.
My counseling style is a combination of Person-Centered, Cognitive-Behavioral, and Solution-Focused. I think it is very important to focus on building a strong therapeutic relationship to help the counseling process be most effective. I believe in meeting the client where they are mentally and emotionally in order to help them work toward what they would like to achieve in counseling. I always encourage and support the client with creating individualized therapeutic goals to help motivate and empower the client to make positive changes.
I look forward to working with you and helping you overcome the challenges you are experiencing.
Additional areas of focus: LGBT, Relationship issues, Family conflicts, Trauma and abuse, Grief, Parenting issues, Career difficulties, Coping with life changes, Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD), Young Adult Issues
Clinical approaches: Client-Centered Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Mindfulness Therapy, Solution-Focused Therapy, Trauma-Focused Therapy

Emily is very kind and understanding. She makes me feel like I'm being listened to when no one else will listen, and I feel very comfortable talking about all my problems with her.
