Under the clinical supervision of Alison McQueen, MA, LPC, ATR, she is working towards credentials as a Licensed Professional Counselor, Registered Art Therapist, and MAPS certified MDMA therapist. 

Emily’s therapeutic approach is art-based, client-centered and somatically informed. She specializes in trauma relief from cultural and diversity issues, women’s issues, birth/birthing, as well as in attachment and early childhood wounding. She draws on her art therapy background, her use of sound, music and voice, her experience as a conscious parent and educator and her own medicine path to help clients build fully integrated experiences.

Emily’s personal art practice includes many fiber arts; weaving, felting, knitting, as well as photography and hand building with clay. Outside of her therapeutic lens Emily also is a deep spiritual practitioner, following the primordial mother into the depths of wherever she is carried. She has training in mindfulness based practices of the Kalikula and often teaches summer camp at Drala Mountain Center. She is a mother of two teenagers and also works part time as an early childhood educator.
