I am here to bring my educational background, personal insight, compassion, and problem-solving skills to work with you on the issues or problems that are interfering with your happiness and quality of life.

Right now it might be difficult to see past the anguish of this very moment. When life is throwing all manner of challenges at us, or when our mental health struggles are weighing us down, it’s tempting to think that we might be stuck here for ever. Taking some time to meet with a therapist can be a very helpful tool in sorting out what is possible for us to move forward.
If there has been a time when I haven’t been helping people, then I don’t remember when it was. I have worked in a variety of capacities as a Youth Pastor, teacher at Toledo School for the Arts, Theatre Artist, and Therapist in a school setting. I believe there is power in people’s abilities to tell their stories aright. I use active listening and intentional curiosity to assist people make personal discoveries and life-affirming choices. I truly believe in the power of the arts to infuse hope and healing into everyday life situations. The use of the imagination can be a great way to consider the possibilities that there may indeed be a different way to live, choose, and dream. I bring my experience in the arts to the therapy setting to provide an unique and interactive experience that helps my clients to move forward and restore well-being.
I am an ally of the LGBTQ+ family, a woman of faith, and I have been a caregiver to those living with dementia.

I believe in a therapy environment of respect, dignity, and compassion, and together with my patients find ways to thrive in an often chaotic and difficult world. I look forward to building a respectful and nurturing relationship with room for laughter and tears.
I provide therapy services to patients with a variety of chronic health diagnoses who are also struggling with their emotional health. My experience in the emergency department, hospice and home health has given me insight into the mental health challenges that frequently accompany the life limitations of chronic illness. I work with my patients to help them to find ways to re-discover their relevance, manage the multiple demands of maintaining their self-care, and to thrive despite their physical challenges. I work with a significant number of patients who are living with morbid obesity and help patients with challenges connected with bariatric surgery.
Additionally, I enjoy navigating with older patients who are making major life adjustments such as entering elder facilities, managing caregiving responsibilities, and working through the challenges of aging.

Emiley received her Master's in Social Work from the University of Toledo. She received her Bachelor's in Arts in Social Work from Eastern Mennonite University.About Emiley:
Sometimes we face challenges and life events that feel as though the rug has been pulled from under us. These times can be very disorienting and may cause disconnection from others and even from ourselves. Therapy can remind us that we are not alone and that we have resources available. The therapeutic relationship can allow space for reflection and for considering changes that help us move forward. Working together often includes making sense of our stories, noticing patterns, modulating emotions, and increasing compassion for ourselves and others. Growth takes time and effort, and yet the ability to live in alignment with what we know to be true and to access our deeper selves is a worthwhile endeavor.
I work with individuals (ages 16+), couples, and families looking for support. I am knowledgeable about trauma and attachment as it pertains to our mental health and relationships. I am experienced in working with anxiety, depression, grief, parenting, and relational difficulties. I am a person of faith and, if indicated, willing to incorporate spirituality in our time together.
