In coaching I partner with clients in a thought-provoking, creative process that inspires them to maximize their personal potential. It is important for me to create an environment of belonging, authenticity, open-mindedness, accessibility, and inclusion for my clients. Because of this, I approach coaching from a holistic and strengths-based lens. As a member of the International Coaching Federation, I also follow the ICF Code of Ethics and Core Competencies.
What People Have Said
Emily was the most kind person I've ever met with. She is so understanding and knows how to make you feel heard, seen, and comfortable!
I think she’s one of the first people I’ve talked to that haven’t made me feel small for the things that prevented me from getting further on my goals.
Emily is such a good balance between supporting and encouraging without being a pushover. She’s been one of the reasons I have been more confident in myself and my abilities and I would recommend her tenfold!

How is coaching different from therapy?
Coaching differs from therapy primarily in the way coaching embraces growth, future goals, change, and development while supporting the client's own agenda. Therapy often focuses on reflecting on the past and processing difficult experiences or understanding the origins of personal cognition, emotion, and behavior patterns.
In coaching, the client’s desires, beliefs, and values are centered in order to inform appropriate goals. Coaching does not follow a specific model or agenda but uses skills and techniques to coach the client where they are, in the present. The coach partners with the client to understand the challenges or goals they have. Coaching proactively supports clients in skill-building and goal achievement. Coaching does not follow a medical model, diagnose, or deliver treatment. High-risk needs (e.g. suicidal ideation, trauma, mood disorders, alcohol or chemical dependency, rape and abuse) are not appropriate for coaching services and should be referred for therapeutic evaluation and treatment.
As a coach, I will be a safe space, thought-partner, and point of accountability for clients.
I am trained to refer clients for therapy or treatment services, when appropriate.
