You’ll notice and appreciate Emily’s open heart and open mind when you work with her in a space where every part of you is welcome. She believes you’re the expert in your own life and that she’s a curious clinician who’ll lean on the power of humor, the power of tears and the power of silence as she listens and supports you in your healing. She says that, “fundamentally what gets wounded in relationships is healed in relationships. Therapy is a safe (but not always comfortable!) place to examine the ways your relationships with yourself and others isn’t working.” Emily will encourage you to address things you’ve been hiding, both knowingly and unknowingly, like an unhealthy relationship with alcohol or other drugs, a history of trauma, unsatisfying relationships with yourself or others, or unfulfilling relationships with work. She helps people from all walks of life and has a particular passion for working with folks from marginalized populations like those in the LGBTQ community. She pulls from an eclectic toolbox when working with clients; everything from somatic awareness, to mindfulness exercises, DBT, CBT, narrative therapy, spiritual exploration, and feminist therapy. With a Bachelor’s degree from the University of Colorado at Boulder and a Master’s degree from the California Institute of Integral Studies, Emily has worked in a variety of settings including crisis centers, community mental health, residential treatment and private practice. When she’s not helping people as a Heart-Centered Counseling therapist, she’s teaching as an adjunct faculty member at the University of Denver’s Graduate School of Social Work, and a faculty member at Denver Family Therapy Institute.
