Emily graduated with a Masters in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from Wake Forest University. She has experience working with clients of all ages in the areas of depression, anxiety, trauma, grief, stress, life transitions, relationship conflict, behavioral concerns, and more. Emily is also trained in EMDR, which is a specialized form of therapy that can help people heal from distressing life experiences.
Her clinical interests include, but are not limited to, non-directive play therapy with children, binge-eating disorder, infant & pregnancy loss, and life transitions for older adults. Emily believes that people are capable of being resilient and resourceful. She also understands that to be human is to sometimes lose sight of our strengths, become overwhelmed, and need someone to talk to when faced with life’s challenges.
Emily views counseling as an opportunity for self-exploration, growth, and healing. Her top priority is to provide a space where clients feel safe, respected, and heard. She uses an integrative approach, drawing mostly from person centered therapy, cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), and solution-focused therapy. However, every client is different. Therefore, Emily tailors treatment to meet each client’s unique needs and personality.
