“It is for freedom that Christ has set us free. Stand firm, then, and do not let yourselves be burdened again by a yoke of slavery.” (Galatians 5:1)
If you are an adult feeling particularly burdened by anxiety, depression, past abuse and trauma, unwanted behaviors, condemning or distressing thoughts, issues of worth, etc., Emily, with the help of God’s Word, desires to help you find freedom.
Emily strives to create an open and caring space, accepting a client’s current place in life while gently encouraging necessary change toward identified goals. Of particular interest to Emily are the Freedom in Christ discipleship materials. She is married with two daughters and two cats. Painting, drawing, and gardening are hobbies she enjoys.
