Emily Anderson, LLMSW 

Regardless of wherever reading this bio leads you, you are worthy of support. You are worthy of love, connection, joy, and meaning. It takes immense courage to take that first step and begin searching for a therapist. I honor that. Whether or not that is me, I hope you walk away from this page empowered in your search. You deserve it.


My name is Emily. I am a mother, a wife, an advocate, an avid reader, an amateur weightlifter, a therapist, and a friend. I am honored to be a part of your journey. I believe that my clients are the experts in themselves. My role is to aid you in recognizing unhelpful thinking patterns, honoring your strengths, cultivating resilience, and practicing coping skills. Together, we will come up with interventions that will meet your needs. I am empathetic, warm, laugh easily, feel emotions deeply, and will create a safe space for you to be vulnerable. I cannot say that opening up won’t be difficult, but it will be worth it.


In the words of Joseph Campbell “the privilege of a lifetime is being who you are.” I have worked with children, adolescents, teenagers, and adults. I’m experienced in faith transitions, anxiety, depression, couple's issues, LGBTQ+ issues, pregnancy and postpartum support, sexuality and sex, women’s issues, OCD, and trauma. To reiterate, you are worthy. I’m glad you are here. Life can get better, and I’d be honored to work beside you and determine how we can make it so.
