About Me

I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) in the states of Georgia and North Carolina with 8 years of experience in the field. I have worked in several roles to include therapy, case management and administration. This has included working with individuals and their families in various settings: home, community, and medical environments. I understand the importance of working with clients, families, and multidisciplinary team members in order to asses and address areas of need.

Specialty areas of practice with adolescents have included sexually based trauma of victim and teen offenders, all forms of child abuse, foster care placement, depression, self-esteem decline and general family disruption.

The therapeutic relationship is foundational for successful counseling outcomes. I believe in treating everyone with respect, sensitivity and compassion no matter their age. My approach is patient centered and individualized. Though there is no one set approach for change, I have experience using Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), Mindfulness and Motivational Interviewing.

I am here to support and empower the adolescent as well as the family unit.

Written by K.I. on Feb 06, 2021 after counseling with Emily for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, addictions, self esteem, and compassion fatigue

I'm new to this & have had a couple live sessions. But I am thourghly thrilled with the competence & secure comfort I find in her abilities. She's all around great & can guide you through many different issues. I'm so thankful for her. & I'm impressed by the helpful reminders/interactions in between our live sessions. It's the perfect balance. :)
