Hello! I'm Emily, a therapist with experience in various settings including residential treatment centers, outpatient centers, community mental health, and schools. I currently have my own private practice, FTF Counseling, PLLC. I specialize in working with clients exploring substance use, whether they are ready to quit or still contemplating. My goal is to help you make informed decisions and fight the stigma around addiction. I use modalities like DBT, Motivational Interviewing, Family Systems, and Acceptance & Commitment Therapy. Let's find what works best for you with your goals in mind.

In therapy, you can expect to learn skills, process life's challenges, and develop healthy coping mechanisms. I take a non-directive approach, helping you find answers to your questions rather than giving advice. Together, we can increase your strengths, challenge negative beliefs, and improve your well-being. I am honored to be on this journey with you!
