She aims to help clients live life in a way that is meaningful to them.

Training and Experience

Emily is a licensed clinical social worker. Most recently, she worked as a therapist at the inpatient, PHP, and IOP levels of care. She obtained her MSW at Simmons University in Boston, MA, where she obtained trainings and internships through Harvard Medical School and its affiliated teaching hospitals. Prior to obtaining her graduate degree, she worked in the admissions department of a psychiatric hospital and as a research assistant at Brown University’s Medical School and Bradley Hospital on an inpatient psychiatric unit.


Emily practices from the stance that thoughts, feelings, and behaviors all affect one another. She uses evidence-based treatments that are built on this principle. These include cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), dialectical behavioral therapy (DBT), prolonged exposure for trauma (PE), and exposure with response prevention (ERP) for anxiety disorders.
