Therapy with Emily

“Relationships are the agents of change and the most powerful therapy is human love.” – Bruce D. Perry

It is an honor to walk alongside those who choose to enter into a partnership with me to gain deeper understanding and acceptance of the things that are causing pain and frustration. My goal is to provide a therapeutic, trauma-informed space that feels non-judgemental, open, holding, and celebratory of who you are at your core. I will join you in this therapeutic journey to support you in processing and developing compassion and care for all of the parts of self and past experiences that have brought you to this point. I enjoy working with many different types of people of various ages and backgrounds and have particular interest in working with children, those going through life transitions, those transitioning into parenthood, or those finding parenting more challenging than expected.

Emily works at our East Ann Arbor location.
