Grounded in ethics of social justice, identity affirmation, and cultural humility, Em’s work takes a contextualized and trauma-informed approach to clients’ healing and growth. Em invites clients to stand shoulder-to-shoulder together, co-creating a tender and honest space to call forward clients’ deepest truths, resilience, and capacity for change.
Em provides broad-spectrum care for people of many identities and issues, specializing in topics that have often been mapped into the margins: issues faced by trans, nonbinary, and gender nonconforming clients; cross-cultural identity navigation; body image and complex embodiment; healing from trauma; sexual stress and difficulty; post-abortion care; and LGBTQIA+ identities and relationships. Em meets clients where they are, and through a combined approach of somatic, gestalt, and psychodynamic modalities, supports clients on their healing journey. Em’s approach is marked by their unique blend of down-to-earth honesty, compassion, and playfulness.
