Emily worked with my son for a wonderful couple of years during which time we saw a great deal of development. We were very surprised how quickly our son connected with Emily. The first time he met Emily, he was responsive to her. He even asked and answered her questions. It was not long before Emily became someone he trusted that he felt as though he could go to for help or questions. He became excited for his sessions and saved up topics he wanted to discuss. Emily’s quiet, frank approach made him feel safe and he felt that she was being herself, not hiding things from him or judging him. Emily has a gift for broaching difficult topics and holding people accountable in a fair and caring way and she is able to see people for who they are through their weakness and trauma. We still appreciate everything Emily has done for our family. She comes highly recommended.
