I’m Emily and I am so glad you found me. I hope you’ve learned the basics by now (besides that I have a penchant for tea and favor playlists over podcasts,) but just in case, here’s a refresher: I’m a Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor (LCPC) practicing in Maryland and Illinois. I specialize in working with women in their mid-20s to mid-40s who are struggling with anxiety, depression, life transitions, and work-related concerns, to name a few.
I’m blessed to make a living not only as a therapist, but as a writer specializing in wellness and self-care, where I dwell in the details — the sound of one’s laugh, the intrigue of a partially open door — and am reminded of the big picture when I’m among nature; young children who view the world with such wonder; and clients whose insight is surpassed only by their resilience.
I love words and listening to favorite songs on repeat. I don’t always finish the crosswords and sudokus I start, but when I do, the brief moment of satisfaction that follows remains unparalleled. I never get tired of being my dog’s favorite human and the vast affection and adventures this affords me. I’m a vegetarian, a runner, and an aspiring bread-baker; a minimalist and a bibliophile; a lover of cardamom; and a seeker of deep connection.
My journey has been far from linear but I’m learning to embrace its dead ends and detours. I hope to help you do the same. Even if our paths don’t cross beyond this shared virtual space, I’m grateful that for today, they intersected.
