More About Emily Truman

Clinical Interests:

I find fulfillment in offering supportive psychotherapy to a wide range of individuals, spanning from childhood to older adults to couples, navigating challenges such as: aging-related concerns, career transitions, gender- and sexually-affirming care to LGBTQ+ individuals, grief, life Transitions, men's issues, mood, personality, and anxiety disorders, personal growth, trauma, relationship dynamics, sexuality and sexual wellness, and women's issues.

Clinical Approach:

I'm deeply invested in understanding people and how their life experiences shape them. My approach blends humanistic, psychodynamic, and cognitive behavioral therapies, anchored in existentialism, to create an inclusive and accepting environment. I prioritize creating a strong therapeutic bond, and I weave in positive psychology to highlight strengths and foster collaborative decision-making. My goal is to empower individuals, guiding them to freely explore their thoughts and emotions, and fostering self-discovery and growth in a safe space.

Hobbies:

I find joy in exploring the outdoors, discovering new hiking trails, and enjoying moments with my husband while walking our dog, Mabel. My personal interests are varied, ranging from playing chess and vintage arcade games to admiring midcentury modern architecture. Reading holds a special place in my life and plays a crucial role in my own self-care routine—I tend to read about 50 books a year, with an emphasis on sci-fi, speculative fiction, and non-fiction. I always love getting book recommendations.
