Emily, MA, ATR-BC, LPC, LPAT is a 2008 graduate of Drexel University. She has almost 15 years of experience working in the field of mental health and human services, as both a clinical Counselor and Creative Arts Therapist. Emily specializes in treating trauma, providing art therapy services to individuals who have experienced significant distress, loss, or those with histories of exposure to violence and abuse. For the past 4 years I have worked with victims of domestic violence and their children. However, I also have varied experiences in multiple settings and at every level of care; working with those who suffer from Chronic mental health conditions, couples and families, children in foster care, teens in residential treatment, and adult perpetrators of crimes.
Her passion lies in helping individuals to find their inner voice through either verbal or non-verbal modalities. In her practice, Emily uses a combination of psychotherapeutic approaches and tools, to help with building awareness, confidence, and healthy coping. She is strengths based, person- centered in her philosophy, and creative in her approach to therapy; often using art-making, play, story telling and metaphors to help individuals of all ages achieve personal happiness and fulfillment.
