About

It’s important to elevate all voices and stories, especially ones that haven’t felt heard before. As a minority identifying therapist and child of immigrants, my lived experiences help me connect with my clients on a deeper level. I strive to create a safe healing space for my clients. I provide therapy to individuals, age 12 and up. I have a special interest in teens, college students, adults of all ages, BIPOC individuals, those from marginalized groups, and first generation and immigrant individuals. I also have specialty training and expertise in developmental trauma, particularly with adoptees and adoptive parents.
I’m passionate about empowering my clients to overcome and work through their struggles with trauma, life stressors and transitions, anxiety, grief, depression, self-esteem, mood instability, interpersonal relationships, parenting and attachment difficulties. I find using creative and hands-on techniques to be very helpful during sessions.
You desire to feel like you’re flourishing rather than just getting by. There’s power in vulnerability. We can work together on finding those barriers, processing uncomfortable feelings and experiences and building self-regulatory skills to thrive. Let’s chat to see if we’re a good fit! Thank you for prioritizing yourself or your loved one(s).

About

Emily's passion for mental health began when she was just a child who saw how much counseling helped those in her family. Since then, her passion has only grown for helping others respond to life and its challenges. Emily believes in the importance of building a strong relationship with her clients, understanding how their identities impact their lives, and ensuring that she is always learning and growing as a person and counselor.

From her experiences in an on-campus clinic and a hospital support center, Emily has developed an approach to counseling that combines Cognitive- Behavioral Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, and Person Centered Therapy. While everyone has different therapeutic needs, Emily tends to draw mostly from these approaches. Emily's professional interests include grief and loss, anxiety, body image concerns, stress management, and life transitions.

About

My philosophy is that every client that walks through my office door already possesses the answers to their problems. They just don’t know they do. I believe that counseling is a healing collaboration between counselor and client, where the client as the expert, and the counselor alongside the client, together evoke the emotional, psychological, and physical changes identified and desired by the client.
I earned both my undergraduate degree in psychology(2008) as well as my master’s in professional counseling(2011) from Georgia State University. I began my career working mainly with survivors of trauma. I believe that trauma is a part of life and began noticing a strong correlation between trauma, anxiety, and emotional eating and weight gain.
I work with weightloss in a unique way, by helping you get to the root of the issue. Whether its a childhood trauma or an unhealthy coping skill, together in collaboration with your body lets find the answer.

Stress just. won't. stop. and “work-life balance” seems like an impossible feat. Your stress has been building for FAR too long; you can't remember the last time you weren’t so overwhelmed or anxious. You can't stand how irritable you’ve become, especially around those you love. Your go-to de-stressors just aren't cutting it anymore - or it's a struggle to use them, and you’re growing tired of your own procrastination, rumination, and withdrawing from others. You want to be more present in your life & relationships. You want to feel like your old self again - or a new, calmer self - on a path of continued growth and success. You want more for yourself and are ready for change.

I can help by co-creating a brave & safe space and validating you - especially when it feels like no one understands. With Accelerated Resolution Therapy (ART), we can help you feel quick relief from prior traumas and distresses, eliminate triggers, and move forward feeling lighter and calmer. We'll rebuild coping skills for relief now & prevention later. I'll challenge you (with care), offer accountability, and use your strengths to help you meet your goals. Ideally, we'll also laugh together and connect as humans.

You're struggling now and contacting therapists only to then wait for responses is frustrating. Skip the waiting and take another step toward relief now by scheduling a brief phone consult directly on my website!

You may be fed up with constant negative thoughts, feeling overwhelmed with making decisions or self-doubt. You might not even remember a time that things didn’t feel this way. But one thing is for sure: you’re ready for some relief. You’re ready to feel confident about yourself and your decisions. You’re ready to stop asking others for reassurance and begin trusting in yourself. Most of all, you’re ready to stop letting anxiety limit you from fully participating in your life.

Clients come to me looking for a therapist who is compassionate, genuine, and trained in proven methods that treat anxiety, because therapy should be a place where you feel hopeful and gain momentum. Sessions with me are practical and focused on learning new tangible skills. We always go at your pace, never pushing to a place you don’t feel ready to go.

As an experienced anxiety therapist, I believe that mastering the ability to feel confident and empowered despite feeling anxiety is the optimal outcome of therapy. You don’t have to continue feeling anxious all the time, and you don’t have to do it alone. Call me today for a free 10-minute phone call. I can’t wait to hear from you.
