About Emily

Emily is a fifth year doctoral student in the Counseling Psychology PhD program at the University of Oregon. Her research focuses on adolescent mental health, particularly how risk factors such as impulsivity and adverse childhood experiences impact suicidal behaviors. Emily’s previous clinical work involves both adolescents and adults at sites including community mental health centers, community college counseling centers, and residential facilities. Her therapeutic approach is very client-centered and strengths-based. She believes the client is the expert of their own lives and works to create a supportive, nonjudgmental place for them to explore their emotions, experiences, and values.

Emily uses an interpersonal process framework to guide her clinical work and incorporates techniques from other modalities such as motivational interviewing, cognitive behavioral therapy, and mindfulness. She is empathetic and collaborative with her clients and believes the therapeutic relationship is a tool that is just as important as all others.

Outside of work, Emily enjoys running and being active, reading, drawing, and exploring Oregon’s wilderness.
