Do you desire to heal the depression and anxiety that is getting in your way of the life you want? Are you ready to begin understanding your mind body connection and how it can be used to deepen your connection with yourself and others? Emma Patterson incorporates a systemic approach to therapy that considers individual and family issues from a holistic perspective with goal orientated outcomes. Through facilitating mindfulness, hands-on activities, and intentional conversations, Emma strives to build useful coping tools while exploring and healing the layers getting in your way, so that you can work towards a more satisfying life.
Emma earned her Master’s degree in Family Therapy from Mercer University and is currently pursuing professional licensure. She has clinical experience in working with presenting problems such as anxiety, depression, parenting issues, identity development, life transitions, and relationship distress. Emma prefers to serve not as an expert or someone with all the answers, but as a collaborative guide who values and deeply respects who her clients are and the wisdom they already have within. Emma’s passion in counseling is to create a relationship built on safety, trust, and hope, where people feel accepted and challenged to grow in new and meaningful ways. When she is not working, she loves cooking, reading, practicing yoga, and spending quality time with loved ones.
