Emily specializes in working with adolescents and young adults who experience challenges such as racing thoughts, obsessive thinking, and emotion dysregulation. These experiences often stem from conditions like anxiety, OCD, trauma, and depression, all of which significantly impact daily life. As you work with Emily, she’ll help you build on your existing skills while introducing new strategies that will allow you to manage your mind and behaviours more.

In your sessions with Emily, you'll engage in a non-judgmental and exploratory journey into your experiences. Emily fosters connections between your past and current feelings with honesty, compassion, and a touch of humour. Trained in therapeutic approaches such as Dialectical Behavioural Therapy (DBT), Exposure and Response Prevention (ERP), Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), and Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (TF-CBT), Emily tailors strategies to your unique identity, considering aspects such as gender, culture, and spirituality. She works collaboratively to incorporate these elements into personalized approaches that align with your intentions.

Outside of her sessions, Emily loves to explore new activities. Most recently, she completed an intro to bouldering and backwoods camping workshops and has her eyes on a pottery-making class. She loves to DIY things around her house and read. She likes to travel around the world and immerse herself in the culture she is exploring; on her bucket list is a van trip around New Zealand. She makes time for live entertainment as often as possible, so she always has a musical, a concert or an event in the calendar. Emily is passionate about creating a life that feels authentic to her and filling it with loved ones and joy.

Q&A

What is your favourite thing to do on a Sunday afternoon?
I like to grab a drink and go for a long walk on a new trail and listen to a good podcast.
What's your favourite guilty pleasure song?
I’m a musical theatre lover so any musical song is good but my current favourite is Independently Owned from the musical Shucked.
What's something unique about you?
I come from a big family and grew up with foster siblings and lots of friends and family. I hadn’t spent more than a few days on my own until earlier this year.
