How Can Emory Help You?

Emory's expertise as both a family therapist and a parent educator make her uniquely qualified to help you, your children, and your family. Since 1996, she has taught well over a thousand parents how to have healthier, happier, and better functioning families--and her award winning publications illustrate her good humored yet practical approach to the ups and downs of family life. Emory's warm and down to earth approach blends respectful appreciation with friendly curiosity, making it easy for people of all ages and backgrounds to connect and work collaboratively with her. You can meet with Emory in Takoma Park and at the PEP offices in Kensington. Or, if your busy schedule makes it difficult to schedule an office visit, Emory can share conversations with you by Skype or phone.
