Emily Ramstad, MA

I bet you’re worried. I was worried when I started looking for a therapist. Trusting anyone with your story is no small feat and I am glad that you’ve made it this far already. Whether you are looking for someone who will cheer you on through any success or sit in the mud with you during difficult parts of life, I am here for it all.

Together, we will explore parts of your life that you wish to gain a deeper understanding and connection with. My goal is to customize your therapy experience to you, as well as, give you the continuous opportunity to shift and change the goals of therapy.

I have experience working with children, adolescents, and adults struggling with depression, anxiety, grief and loss, medical trauma, traumatic brain injuries, suicidal ideation, and relationship concerns. Some of my specific interest areas include working with pregnancy and post-partum, spirituality, sexual health, polyamory/ethical non-monogamy and sexuality, gender, and orientation. I provide LGBTQIA+ affirming therapy by creating an open and caring space for all.
