Emily Parks


Marriage & Family Therapist Associate
Sex Therapist

Emily specializes in relationships and intimacy using sex therapy lens while working with couples and other relationship structures. Emily has been trained to be culturally, relationally, spiritually cognizant when working with clients and loves to bring a collaborative approach to therapy.  Life can be uncomfortable at times and filled with varying types of hardships and experiences. This means guidance and aid is not only needed during certain chapters but can be necessary.  With this is mind Emily helps create an environment that is judgement free and fueled with curiosity. Emily believes that self-compassion, identity building, communication skills are foundational to creating meaningful connections individually and interpersonally. She believes she can support clients by helping them build on the connections they have to themselves, and others who are important to their interpersonal world.  

Emily enjoys working with individuals, couples and families who are looking to be curious about their own way of making meaning in their life. Emily would like to support clients who are finding distress with difficult life transitions, adverse childhood experiences, trauma, infidelity/betrayal, depression, anxiety, parenthood, relationship satisfaction, intimacy, and desire, and/or other sexual dysfunctions/concerns. Discerning and difficult life events can create duress and non-engagement with those closest to you. This can leave people feeling isolated or alone in perhaps some of the hardest chapters of their lives.  Emily believes restoring relationships and establishing a sense of community is one of the cornerstones in the healing process for clients.
