Individual Counseling for Adults with Emily MacDonald
My practice includes individual therapy with adults 18+ focusing on mental health, identity, life transition and burnout concerns. My style is non-pathologizing, collaborative and individualized. I use an anti-oppression social justice framework and believe that problems exist outside of people, not inside of them. My role is to try to be helpful in ways that are personally meaningful to you as you identify what continues to be influential in your life. I offer a free 15 minute consultation to determine if we’d like to work together.
As a neurodiversity affirming and LGBQTIA+ welcoming and affirming therapist I’m committed to ongoing training in our communities to offer the safest therapeutic space I can. My own self work includes identifying, challenging, and unlearning narratives that perpetuate systemic harm and participating in the ongoing practice of anti-racism.
I identify as queer and neurodivergent (formally diagnosed ADHD, self-identified Autistic) and I’m allied with body positive, sex positive, non-monogamous, kink, and disabled communities. I’m passionate about trauma informed care, the social model of disability and realistic wellness for all of us. Representation matters.
I have over 20 years of experience working in the community mental health system partnering with underserved and marginalized communities.
