About me

Hello! My name is Emma Foster. Welcome and congratulations on making it here! I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker with over 11 years experience. I work with individuals, families, adolescents and couples, I believe that it is valuable to engage mind, body and spirit when working toward becoming more aware of self and taking strides toward some level of self improvement. Life's journey can present with many challenges that can really be hard to navigate. Issues of grief and loss, anxiety, depression and other areas of emotional and mental health are common topics discussed in therapy.

We have journeyed through very turbulent times in the face of a global pandemic. We have been able to grow closer together while still trying to honor our peace and balance our lives. Engaging in therapy can be a little scary as well as comforting. I am here to provide support and work collaboratively in helping you to arrive in new and healthy internal spaces that will enhance how you're able to navigate external places.

Specialties include depression, anxiety, grief, Trauma, Personality Disorders, mood disorders

Utilizing a person centered approach reiterating that you are the focus of any resolution obtained, it is valuable to support journey's of self discovery and strength empowering and actuating change.

Has been very guiding so far, since I'm still early on in the experience, doesn't always answer quickly, but has been very helpful

I have only been in a few sessions so farm but Emmerita has flipped the script on me and me realize why I needed therapy in the first place. I came seeking help for my marriage. She made me see that I need to heal myself first and I have been doing so ever since. I appreciate her for helping me reach deeper within myself.
