Who I Am

Hello, I am Emily (she/her/hers). I am glad you found me!

I am a licensed Washington State mental health counselor (LMHC) and Substance Use Disorder Professional (SUDP) with a Master of Science in Co-occurring Disorder Recovery Counseling from Metropolitan State University, St. Paul, MN. In addition, I am licensed in the State of Minnesota as an Alcohol and Drug Counselor (LADC), Colorado as a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) and working toward certification as a sexual addiction therapist (CSAT-C). I have experience working in outpatient and residential co-occurring settings providing both group and individual therapy services. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including addiction, PTSD/Trauma, depression, anxiety, self-worth/esteem issues, women’s issues, domestic violence, and chronic health. 

I am also a participating member of the Family Advocacy Outreach Network (FAON), a program of the Family Advocacy Division of the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children® and a mental health professional serving the Washington Association of Sheriffs and Police Chiefs (WASPC).

My background

I grew up in Minnesota and relocated to Washington in 2020 to be near my daughter, son-in-law, and grandchildren.   I worked in various fields of employment, mostly business-oriented.  Having worked in the business field for several years, I found myself unsatisfied with the corporate world.  Therefore, when my daughter graduated from college in 2008, it was time to return to college to finish my bachelor’s degree and then my master’s degree. It has been my belief for many years that I have been called to work with those challenged with addiction and/or mental health concerns. Because of my own experiences in life, I believe it gives me the added benefit of understanding people while being compassionate to their needs.
