Professional statement

Emilie Kestner is a Psychotherapist with a focus in helping people look at their relationships with their caregivers differently, understanding how to communicate effectively with others (regardless of how the other person is communicating themselves), sexual challenges, overcoming obstacles preventing them from progressing through the family life cycle appropriately, accepting and loving different parts of the clients’ identities, and creating a life worth living. She offers clients time and space to process and re-examine their beliefs and challenges in a nonjudgmental light. She also offers specific skills to deal with distressing situations or uncomfortable emotions.

As a therapist, she entered the mental health field with an interest in helping individuals with sexual challenges and have found that she also works well with individuals who have been through trauma in terms of building a life more worth living to them. As a neurodivergent person herself, she also wanted to provide neurodiverse-affirming care to others.

Emilie Kestner describes her style of therapy as collaborative with her clients, open to feedback, encouraging, humorous, and direct. She is passionate about finding what works best for each patient and their needs. Therapy alongside other treatments such as Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) and esketamine can help give patients a wide variety of options in order to find what works best to help them as an individual.
