ACCEPTING NEW CLIENTS

Hello, from Emily and Wrigley (she’s the doggy in the picture), I'm a licensed family therapist with over 15 years of experience and Wrigley is my loyal sidekick creating a relaxing environment. I am passionate to help children and families overcome stressors and difficulties they are experiencing, such as: meltdowns/tantrums, sensory issues, ASD, anxiety, depression, fears/worries, and issues related to divorce. I’m a strong believer in hope and resilience of the human soul and healing can occur for families if they are believed in, build positive connections, and provided with professional guidance.

     My experience ranges from Wilderness Therapy working with teens to being an Early Childhood Consultant in the Pacific Northwest. I utilize a variety of evidenced based practices helping to improve overall functioning and I have a proven track record of building genuine rapport and empowering families to make healthy changes.

From Parents:

“At our first visit with Emily, I could already tell we were going to make great strides.”

 

“Our son has come so far in the last months, but more than that, I’ve come so far! My husband and I have the tools needed to practice/improve our parenting skills.”

 

We look forward to meeting you and working together to achieve your goals.
