ABOUT EMMA DEIHL
she, her, hers
Emma offers a safe space for clients to share their stories, gain insight, and discover the power within them to make change. Emma uses an evidence-based, holistic, and culturally sensitive approach to therapy. She implements treatment interventions grounded in scientific research, customizing the interventions to meet the unique values and needs of each client. Emma seeks to help clients explore the intricate connections among their thoughts, feelings, behaviors, relationships, and sociocultural context. She has worked extensively with the following diagnoses: Eating Disorders, Obsessive Compulsive Disorders, Depression, and Anxiety Disorders. She is also passionate about guiding individuals in exploring identity-related issues. She has experience working with children, adolescents, and adults.
Emma has training and experience in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (focused on the interactions among one’s thoughts, feelings, and behaviors), Exposure and Response Prevention (designed to help individuals with Obsessive-Compulsive Disorders), Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (used primarily for children who have experienced trauma), and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (developed to increase emotion regulation and mindfulness, distress tolerance, and healthy relationship-building).
When she’s not conducting therapy, Emma enjoys walking her little goldendoodle, Ruthie, planning traveling adventures, perusing bookstores, drinking coffee, writing poetry, playing guitar, and spending time with loved ones.
