Emily Williams Hartman, LPC

Emily-HartmanthumbnailAs a Licensed Professional Counselor, I have experience treating a variety of issues. These include relationship struggles or unhealthy family dynamics, attachment struggles, eating disorders, mood disorders, and trauma, among others. Whether you are in need of help navigating present relationships or are struggling with lifelong issues, my education and experience in multiple therapeutic modalities can help you achieve your goals. My training includes Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), Interpersonal Effectiveness, Family Systems Therapy, Attachment Theory, Internal Family Systems (IFS), and insight oriented therapy. With the collaboration of my clients, I use a variety of approaches throughout the therapeutic process to meet the needs of the individuals and families I see as they progress and work towards leading healthier lives.

I believe, and have seen through the successful work of my clients, that therapy can be effective whether you are looking for short term guidance from a compassionate and objective third party, as well as if you are in need of more long term therapy to resolve more difficult struggles.

The process of becoming our best selves and leading more fulfilling lives can be difficult. My experience and training can help you grow and create the change you are looking for in order to lead a happier life.
