Wild Sacred Journey with Kate Powell: Spirituality in the These Times + Being More Human
We’re in this Shift Together with Matt Ponak: Somatic Spirituality
I have seen many counselors throughout my life. Not only is Emma very personable and easy to talk to, but her unique counseling approach is much more effective than any counseling I’ve ever had. Instead of trying to overcome my issues, she uses a technique to help me delve more deeper into them. Incredibly, she is able to do this with the sense of safety and support. I have made more progress in my two months with her than I have in all the previous years of my counseling combined. Highly recommended. She’s amazing!
Emma is a game-changer. I’ve been in and out of 5 therapists offices over the past 20 years, and Emma has been the most effective therapist I’ve seen. She has facilitated and held space for massive transformation for me over the past year. She is a safe space for feeling big feelings. With her gentle, compassionate guidance, I’ve been able to process so much, face what I didn’t think I could face, and I always feel 100% safe going to these scary places with her at the helm. She has helped me connect to myself in ways and to a depth I didn’t know was possible. Emma is a non-negotiable for my mental health!
