About me

I am a Licensed Clinical Marriage and Family Therapist in the state of Kansas. I have been licensed and working since 2012. After nearly 6 years in rural community mental health, I transitioned into private practice. I've worked extensively with adults and adolescents managing a variety of issues: depression, anxiety, suicidal thinking, relationship problems, issues around identity, problems with sex and sexuality, work and career issues, social problems, and others. Basically, if you can identify it as an issue, I've probably treated it.

My goal - as a clinician and a human - is to normalize the idea of having mental health issues, and empowerment in struggle. Or, as I generally put it, "I'm not ok. You're not ok. And that's ok."

My style is warm and supportive, but I will push you when I feel you're ready to be pushed. My goal is to help you meet your goals, and I'll push you to do what you've identified you want to do. I utilize cognitive behavioral therapy, dialectical behavior therapy, family systems theory, contextual therapy, and interpersonal therapy as the guiding forces of my practice, but there are bits and pieces of others as well. I will pull from whatever I can to help you achieve your goals. I have focused on and trained in trauma-informed care and have a variety of tools to draw on to help you meet your goals.

Making the choice to start therapy and begin working on yourself is not an easy choice to make. Congratulations on taking this first step! I look forward to working with you.

Emma is very helpful and understanding. I feel like I can talk to her about anything without judgement. I appreciate how she asks the right questions and guides me in the right direction.

Emma is quite literally the best therapist I've ever had. She speaks to me like a caring friend and is always there to listen. She calls me out when I'm being crazy and supports me when I need it. I adore her and don't know how I could've handled the last half of this year without her. I am forever grateful.

Emma has been so incredibly kind and helpful to me. She is the only person who I've met that has specialty in my specific type of trauma and has been working to help me overcome it.
