abuse/neglect and helps them understand how this impacts their ability to have meaningful and nourishing sexual experiences.

and mental distress caused from negative childhood experiences.

Emily is a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC).
You've made it this far: you've decided to work on having the kind of life and relationships you always thought you would.
Clients who've collaborated with me have built more self-confidence, developed tools to deal with complicated histories, established boundaries within
toxic relationships and grown happy with being themselves. Within months, folks finally invest in who they are, and the results can change lives.
In 8-16 weeks, that person in your mirror could be closer to the best version of you.
Connection and intimacy is easy to shove to the side when life is busy,
and sometimes, picking that part of your relationship back up can be tricky, especially f you feel like your 'normal' doesn't look like most people's.
Clients who participate in non-mainstream lifestyle dynamics, who identify as LGB or trans; clients who have struggled with issues of 'fitting in', gamers,
and folks who identify as black sheep often find I'm a good fit.
