Emily offers a safe space for clients to share their story in a way they may have never had the opportunity to before. Her favorite thing about being a therapist is “Coming alongside them to be both a validating and encouraging voice, while also a challenging one; to witness firsthand the healing that can come from it and the hope that it creates.”
Emily received her Bachelor’s degree in Human Development and Family Science from Samford University and her Master’s degree in Clinical Social Work from the University of Tennessee. She has worked for The Renfrew Center of Nashville for 3 years as a Clinical Assessor, and most recently as an Admissions Team Lead, where she is responsible for completing biopsychosocial evaluations of new patients with eating disorders and supervising others who do the same. We are thrilled to have Emily working part-time for True North Counseling in addition to her role as Admissions Team Lead!
Emily has a particular passion for working with clients ages 18-30. She enjoys guiding young adults through the life transitions and identity exploration that occurs at this stage, and is an expert in the field of eating disorders, body image, and depression and anxiety.
When she’s not busy being a therapist, Emily loves spending time with her husband and their families, hiking, antique shopping, and cooking. In fact, she loves food and cooking so much that if she weren’t a therapist, she’d be a traveling food critic!
