About Therapy

Imagine a space where you are free to share and express anything you want, and be accepted.... even for the parts of yourself that you're ashamed of. Imagine tapping into your true self and using this to heal the wounds that are causing your symptoms. 

That's what sessions are like! I help you love yourself more deeply, become more conscious and self-aware, and heal the wounds underlying the symptoms that are bringing you to therapy.

I like to balance both talk therapy and depth methods. Many of my sessions are conducted through a meditation-like process where you go deep into your inner world to heal, called IFS (also known as "Parts Work").

The psychotherapy field is headed in a new direction. It's going deeper than talk therapy alone (even if the Midwest is lagging a bit behind on this!) That's why I like to do things a little differently. Discover my approach below.

My Approach

01

EXPERIENTIAL

Go on a dynamic, visual, imaginative, and exciting trip through your inner world to heal your psyche

02

MINDFUL

I help you become more a more conscious human being, feel safe in your body, and enjoy life in the present moment

03

TRAUMA-SENSITIVE

I’ve studied shock, developmental, and attachment trauma and I’m trained to help you heal it

04

HOLISTIC

Use therapy as a way to harmonize your mind, body, emotions, and spirit

05

TRANSPERSONAL

 

Experience yourself as a spiritual being inextricably connected with all of life, and connect to a sense of wonder and awe

06

SOMATIC

You’re more than just a walking brain. I help you get into your body to heal

07

HUMANIZING

I don’t define you by a diagnosis. I see you as a human first, and your symptoms as clues to   deeper pain that we work towards healing

08

TALK-BASED 

 

If you ever need to use a session to vent, be heard, or talk things out, I'm always here for that, too!

Who I Love To Work With

I work with people who are excited to make a change by doing deep inner work that gets to the core of their issues while becoming a more conscious, mindful individual along the way. 

 

I work well with clients who are introspective, curious, motivated, and holistically-minded. They are sometimes highly sensitive people and/or intuitive feeling types (think NF on the Meyers-Briggs test, like INFJ, or ENFP).

 

Many of them have already done work on themselves through past therapy, or have done independent studying, journaling, meditation, or yoga on their own. They are curious to try an embodied, mindfulness-based, and experiential approach to therapy. 

 

PSA: LGBTQ+ and people diverse religious, ethnic, racial, and cultural backgrounds are welcomed and loved in my office!

What I Love To Help You Do

  • Become friends with your emotions and learn how to make them not so scary, befriending stress, sadness, anger, anxiety, and loneliness 

  • Learn to love yourself, and use this loving presence to transform even your darkest parts into something beautiful

  • End the inner war and feel more at home inside your own mind

  • Heal from old trauma and become the person you want to be

  • Tap into your inner wisdom so you can become your own healer and overcome obstacles… both now, and long after therapy is over

ANXIETY & SELF-ESTEEM ISSUES

Feeling worried, on edge, never able to relax, secretly insecure, or worried no one likes them

02

TRAUMATIC PASTS

03

04

Overwhelmed by the pressure and wanting to make a change to live a more fulfilling, mindful life

The Deets on Online and In-Person Therapy

As it currently stands, I am offering clients a choice of online or in-person sessions. I am vaccinated and the chairs in my office are set 6 feet apart. In-person sessions take place on Tuesday through Thursday.

Online therapy will be conducted over a HIPAA-compliant video platform, similar to zoom. You can access the platform easily via computer, laptop, or smartphone.

Some clients prefer only online sessions, only in-person sessions, or a hybrid of both. I do my best to accommodate your preferences.

TESTIMONIAL

“This review is for my experience with “Inner Harmony”, a six week course in IFS, as well as a private IFS session with Emma: Firstly, it seems to me that Emma clearly shares her practice from a place of personal results and healing. The tools and concepts that she shares are shared with an intimate understanding that tells me that she utilizes them regularly. Maybe more importantly, this tells me that she believes fully in what she is sharing.

 

Secondly, IFS as a practice seems to me to hold infinite healing/therapeutic potential. The framework that IFS provides to explore the mind is simple to navigate and, if one is willing, powerful to behold. I enjoy seeing the world through the lens of IFS on occasion.

 

Lastly, with the help of Emma, I am successfully navigating these challenging times of Covid-19. In this time, I have experienced doubts and fears and anxieties. Emma, through the lens of IFS, has assisted my process of healing some of the roots of these emotions so that I may live life with more clarity. Thank you, Emma.”
