My Ideal Client

Perhaps you struggle with anxiety, have been through difficult life events, or even trauma, and seek to break free from the impact of these experiences. Maybe you feel low and struggle to understand why. You may struggle with attachment or relationships, or feel creatively blocked or uninspired. Perhaps you experience ADHD or neurodiversity and struggle to navigate the world at times. You could be in a life transition, or looking to deepen your connection and security in your relationship.

My Approach to Helping

I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and I help those who seek to heal from trauma using Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), which is uniquely effective at freeing people from traumatic experiences. I draw on the Gottman method to strengthen couples’ relationships. I also delight in supporting those with ADHD. I enjoy acting, filmmaking, and comedy in my spare time. Seeking counseling is an act of bravery--I am here to travel alongside you and offer support. My goal is to put you at ease and offer exceptional support as you find your most grounded and healing path forward.

My Values as a Therapist

I believe Black lives matter and social justice is of core importance to therapy. I welcome and empower LGBTQIA+ clients. I inspire growth in my clients with gentle encouragement, evidenced based practices and humor. I offer support to people with relational, career, creative, and personal challenges through a trauma-informed lens. I use CBT and mindfulness to help clients overcome anxiety, depression, or attachment challenges in order to help make life dreams come true. At this time I see Oregon residents. My goal is to put you at ease and offer exceptional support as you find your most grounded and healing path forward. Email hello@emmabridgeslcsw.com for a free 20-minute consultation.

  • Gottman Method External link

    I enjoy supporting couples as a level one trained Gottman clinician.

  • Narrative  External link
  • Attachment Theory External link

    I believe that attachment is the core of how we relate to others.
