Emily’s warmth and compassion resonates with me and her attentive approach has enhanced my experience. The work of healing is crucial and it starts with a therapist that is relatable, sincere and authentic. This can easily assist in removing the stigma of “mental health” and steer the narrative towards emotional balance & wellness. She challenges me to approach my healing with identifying the root of my triggers while being open and honest with all the facts. Most importantly, it’s my work to understand how the facts and old narratives has shaped my life and she provides me with updated tools & expertise to tackle my PTSD. Emily’s skillful approach is helping me to forge ahead and truly heal in the most pragmatic and authentic way.
