About Me

I am a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist in Pennsylvania. I have extensive experience working with couples, focusing on helping couples achieve stronger and more intimate relationships. I have significant experience working with children, teens and their families, utilizing a variety of models, including, but not limited to, Eco-Systemic Structural Family Therapy, Emotion Focused Therapy, and Attachment Based Family Therapy.

I am a Strengths Based Therapist, focusing on creating a safe environment in which individuals can feel acknowledged and understood, while helping to explore and overcome the obstacles and challenges to achieving the changes they desire. I practice a collaborative approach that helps to build a strong therapeutic relationship. Many clients find themselves stuck in unhelpful and unhealthy relational patterns that are negatively affecting their relationships and preventing them from reaching life goals. In my work, I help individuals, couples, and families identify these patterns and the role they play in sustaining these patterns.

In my work I focus on emotional experiences and feelings that are getting triggered. I believe that most work is done in-between our conversations where individuals take the tools we are working on learning during our conversations. I also believe in providing clients homework to help support the work we are doing.

Emily is a great listener and offers thoughtful insights about my relationships and behavioral patterns. She is easy to talk to and a pleasure to work with!

Written by A.U. on May 27, 2020 after counseling with Emily for 1 month on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, self esteem, and coping with life changes

She has been incredible about helping me pinpoint what I'm struggling with, and she encourages me to set attainable goals for myself every week. I feel so comfortable talking to her about anything I'm struggling with and I feel like I've been making progress because of her.

Emily is great...she has actually gotten me to think about things in a different way. She also is not pushy.

Emily was extremely easy to talk to and very supportive and understanding. I would highly recommend her to anyone that felt they were in need of counseling services.
