Hi, I'm Emma!
I'm a strong believer that our bodies hold inherent wisdom, and that they are trustworthy. I also believe that the stories we tell ourselves shape our realities, and that therapy is a unique and powerful exploration of those stories. I dream of co-creating a therapeutic environment where you can take up space, breathe a sigh of relief, and be courageous in your exploration of yourself.
I resonate with therapy frameworks found in Narrative Therapy and Internal Family Systems, with a foundation in embodiment and the impacts of our developmental experiences. As a fat and queer person, my work is influenced heavily by my values in anti-racism, anti-capitalism, queer and intersectional feminist theory, fat liberation and disability justice. My approach is direct, collaborative and relational, and our work together will be trauma-informed, sex-positive, and client-led. I am open to work with adult individuals, couples, polycules, and families of all structures - if anything here in my bio resonates with you, please feel free to reach out.
I have a special interest in working with clients who are:
I'm currently a Marriage, Couples & Family Counseling student at Adler Graduate School, and I received my Bachelors in Urban Studies. My background is a mix of non-profit and corporate settings, primarily focused in strategy and operations work.
When I'm not working, I might be curled up in the hammock with a fantasy romance book, trying my hand at a new dinner recipe, flowing through a sun salutation on my yoga mat, or snuggled up with a movie or video games on the couch with my husband of 8 years and our 5 year old pit mix, Luna.
