Client testimonials

"Emily was easy to talk to, and I felt like she was engaged the whole time. I expressed my concerns, and at the end of the session, she really made it clear that this was about me and my comfort. She encouraged me to be vocal any time I didn't want to talk about something or wanted to change goals."
