Our Team

Emalie Coplan – M.A.

Post-Master's Fellow

I believe that all of us have a deep desire to be valued and seen by others, yet so often in our lives we develop patterns of thinking and behaving that distance us from those we wish most to be close with.  Our brains are wise and adaptive, and act in our best interest to protect us, but with time, ways of moving through the world that once kept us safe begin to interfere with our daily lives and prevent us from rising to meet our potential.

Together we will work to create a safe therapeutic relationship where we will examine not only where you have come from, but also the space between where you are and where you would like to go.  Grounded in an understanding of human relationships and systems of interaction, I will assist you with looking at your interpersonal relationships to build insight and skills that enable you to move forward in your life with intention, control, and gratifying connections to others.

I draw from an integrated framework of narrative therapy, collaborative therapy, attachment theory, feminist theory, developmental repair, the neurobiology and physiology of trauma, and mindfulness. I am sex-positive, kink-friendly, and LGBTQ+ friendly.

I have experience providing individual, couples, and family psychotherapy to adolescents and adults who have experienced relational conflict, trauma, sexual concerns, anxiety, depression, and psychotic disorders.
