Coffee or tea?

I’m Emily, and I’m so glad you found me. I know we don’t know each other (or maybe we do!) but it feels like however you got here, you belong. And while I’d like to think that I have a hand in our lives overlapping, where these words are first meeting you and our worlds collide, there’s far more at work than I can explain. But every story has a beginning and here’s mine.
As a 30-something who’s still charting her path and settling into big uncertainties, finding joy in small wonders and gratitude in befriending the good, the bad, and the ugly, I’m not afraid to admit that I don’t have it all figured out. But I believe that the gaps in our lives, the unanswered questions and unresolved endings, are invitations to dig a little deeper and welcome what we uncover.
This is where the magic happens.
No matter the form the day takes, it is always ripe with opportunity: to grow, to play, to laugh, to cry. To scream, to dance, to sing, to think. To love, to be vulnerable, to be brave. To listen, to speak up. To create, to learn, to teach. To forgive, to grieve, to celebrate. To be mindful, to be curious. To connect, to disconnect. To fail, to begin again, to live.
Let’s talk therapy.
What type of therapist are you?
A transparent one. A gentle one. An 8:00 am one.
A glass half-full one. A fully human one.
I’ve been known to overuse analogies and forget your sister’s name. I empathize and educate, and try to type while I talk (a futile undertaking.) I will never admit to wearing sweatpants, leggings, or pajama bottoms during a session, as long as the camera continues to capture me from only the neck up. I will always ask how you’re doing, how you’re really doing, and sit with you as you find your voice.
I work with women whose lives have gotten a bit off kilter. Resilient, bright, determined women. Fatigued, stressed, and anxious women. Women who need a reminder of who they are beneath their carefully polished exteriors, a reminder that they are whole because of their flaws and failures, not in spite of them.
Perched in my home office, I help clients:
• Identify their values
• Develop meaningful self-care strategies
• Reshape limiting beliefs and behaviors that no longer serve them
• Approach themselves with curiosity, tenderness, and appreciation
• Accept their experience while quieting the voice of their inner critic
• Understand how nutrition, diet, sleep, and exercise shape their emotional wellness
I want my clients to meet themselves at the start and end of each day and fall in love all over again with what they find.
Golden milk + crosswords + Yoga with Adriene + meditating + screen time breaks + nature escapes + making sweet things + dabbling in savory things + book stacks + Jumbles + baking bread (or pretending I do) + hiking + running + playlist-making + photo-taking + creating + exploring + deep connection + old friends + farmers markets + game nights + spending time with my favorite girl, whose ears happen to perk up at the word “park,” Lyla.
