ACCEPTING NEW CLIENTS
Hello, my name is Emily. Thank you for taking the time to read my page. It’s very likely you’ve read several therapists’ bios. The process of choosing a therapist can be daunting, and you’re likely already feeling very overwhelmed. I would like to ease this process for you. That doesn’t mean you won’t encounter periods of discomfort, or times of challenge. You’re here reading this, and I would like to commend you for that. You’ve taken one of the initial steps in your journey and I would be honored to be part of the journey to creating a happier you.
In 2013, I graduated from Grand Valley State University with a Masters in Social Work. I have experience in a variety of settings, ranging from Emergency Departments, Long Term Acute Care Hospitals, and Inpatient and Partial Psychiatric Hospitalization programs. I have experience, and enjoy, working with a wide array of ages, ranging from children to older adults. I have worked with clients struggling with a multitude of issues, including: depression; anxiety; suicidal/ self-harm ideation; mood disorders; personality disorders.
You may be wondering what “treatment approach” I practice. I utilize a variety of pragmatic treatment modalities, including Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), person-centered, and solutions- focused. Therapy should be customized as not every person, nor situation, is identical. Whether you are looking to cope with stress in a more healthy manner, better regulate your emotions, or improve relationships with others, I can work with you to discover what strategies will work best for you and assist you in exercising these strategies in practical ways.
