She is passionate about working with adolescents and young adults who are exploring the complexities of life transitions and independence.
Emma has experience working with veterans with a focus on PTSD, complex trauma, and moral injury. Emma also worked with youth in the Boston metro area providing in-home family therapy while centering the strengths of her youth clients.
