Hello! I am Emily Hernandez (She/Her). I identify as a cis-gender first generation Mexican-American. I’m a Licensed Social Worker with experience working in schools and medical settings; I am a therapist that enjoys working with teens and adults. I believe in a client centered approach and defining therapy in a way that best suits you and your goals.
Teens and young adults experiencing anxiety, depression or other mood disorders Immigrant populations
Individuals who want to explore interpersonal relationships, relationship issues, and boundaries
My approach emphasizes building a positive therapeutic relationship that is client centered. I do not believe therapy is a one-size-fits-all so I tend to pull from a variety of methods including, but not limited to, Solution-Focused Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy.
As a therapist, it starts with creating a safe therapeutic environment for you and I. I provide a non-judgemental space where you will feel comfortable and supported while still enabling you to grow. I believe growth at times can be uncomfortable and challenging but I am there to work together as a team to navigate those feelings. I welcome and invite your feedback to help structure our sessions so that they feel most meaningful for you.
I believe everyone can heal and change
