Preferred Name: Emily

Online Therapy

About Me

I am a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) in Minnesota, and Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor (LCPC) in Montana. I provided comprehensive school and community therapy in rural Montana, for five years, and have experience working with students in a K-12 setting. I have a passion for helping children, teens, and adults find ways to live a healthy, fulfilling life. Currently, I am working for a private practice via telehealth in Northern Minnesota, and continue to work with teens and adults, using EMDR, CBT, and an holistic approach to wellness. I have experience working with clients on a variety of concerns including, but certainly not limited to: anxiety; depression, PTSD; relationships; coping skills; trauma; social skills; school issues; grief; lack of motivation and self-esteem issues. I believe that taking a holistic approach is important. No two people are exactly the same, and therefore our needs are different, and how we process the daily events are different. We all have different family networks, support systems, backgrounds, learning styles, and strengths. I take all of this into consideration when working with clients, and include individuals in finding the best method of treatment for them. When not working with clients, I enjoy being outdoors, hiking, fishing, exercising and spending time with family, friends, and my cow dog, Chewy. I’m an avid sports fan, and love find new ways to focus on health and overall wellness.

Education & Experience

I have a bachelor's of Arts in Psychology from the University of Alaska Fairbanks (UAF), and graduated from the UAF Master's of education in Counseling program in 2016. I completed the EMDR basic training course in May of 2022, and am currently working toward my EMDR certification with the Professional Transformation Institute, using the SAFE approach.
