Hi there! I am Emily. I am a compassionate, authentic, non-judgmental, inviting, warm,  and dedicated mental health professional and advocate.  I believe that therapy can be so much more than just "finding solutions." I use an attachment-based and relational framework, which allows us to collaborate in developing a deeper sense of self-understanding. Together, we work to uncover and offer compassion to the "root" of "why" you are feeling the way you have been feeling. 

 

I graduated from the University of Pennsylvania's Counseling and Mental Health program. I have experience working in community mental health, intensive outpatient, hospitalization, and outpatient settings, as well as both individual and group therapy settings. I dedicated much of my educational career on mental health interventions and approaches, accessibility to therapy, and gender and sexuality studies.

 

I am currently pre-licensed,  working under the supervision of Caitlin Brady, LCSW, CEDS, RYT and Debbie Tannenbaum, LPC, NCC. 

 

A few of my favorite things outside of being a therapist are coffee, yoga, traveling, meeting new people, dancing, and listening to podcasts.
