About Me

I have been in the helping profession for over 20 years. I have worked throughout the years with a wide variety of clients across the life span. I approach clients with an open mind, encouraging them to set their goals and determine the best therapy to help them resolve their problems and issues. I am solution-focused, always asking, "what do you want or need to be the most whole person you can be? How can I help?" Clients have told me they most appreciate that I listen, do not judge, and provide an empathetic ear. I utilize a variety of techniques to help a client on their journey, but have found the specific intervention is often less important than the emotional support given. I find clients often have the answer to their issues, but they need help recognizing that answer. Change is hard, but it can be accomplished with faith and hope there is a better place at the end of the therapeutic road. Know also that I almost always can accommodate days and times that work for you. So, if you are looking over my schedule and don't find a good appointment slot, write and let me know! We will work something out and that is not at all a problem. I usually respond within 24 hours of a message. In the meantime, take care and hopefully we will be able to chat soon!

Emma makes you feel comfortable and open to sharing, without judgement. I’ve tried therapy before and didn’t love it, but am looking forward to more sessions with Emma.

Emma is one of the best the therapists you can find. She is supportive and a very good listener. She help me personally find my inner voice. She helped me navigate my feelings in a positive manner as well as helped me grief my loss in a healthier way.

I have only had two sessions with Emma, but in those two sessions she was open, non-judgemental and empathetic, which at this time, is what I need. I felt safe to share, and at the end of each session, I wanted more time. She is very knowledgeable in the areas that I am in most need of help and guidance, and I have confidence in her ability to help me heal.

I've been experiencing anxiety and depression in work since the pandemic hit. I got to a very low point, and didn't know where to turn when my medical provider suggested I try BetterHelp. I was a little skeptical because I had never done online counseling/therapy before, and I was worried about matching with someone who would help me (I had problems with a previous counselor). After connecting with Emma I felt extremely confident in her abilities. She is clear in her communication, listens well, and provides evidence-based techniques to help my needs. I am so thankful we connected, and look forward to continued sessions!
