Whether life is presenting current challenges or the trauma you experienced in your past is preventing you from living in the present, therapy can be a powerful tool to help process those intense emotions and find ways to soothe. Enduring trauma can prevent us from living our life to the fullest, whether it’s negative thoughts playing over and over, physical responses, painful memories, or feeling overwhelmed with everyday stressors. Emma provides a safe and non-judgmental space for clients to heal and gain new insights on their own unique experiences.


Emma works with all developmental ages, including children as young as three, adolescents, and adults. Emma obtained her master’s degree in both Social Work and Infant Mental Health from Wayne State University. She has experience working with children, families, and adults with complex trauma, anxiety, depressive disorders, and grief and loss. She utilizes psychodynamic approaches, relational, attachment based, and strengths-based therapy to promote a new sense of well-being with each unique client she engages with.


Emma understands that beginning the journey of therapy can be intimidating and works with clients to ease their nerves while building the therapeutic relationship. Therapy can be tough but together, you and Emma can find hope and safety within your journey.

Gabrielle Deschaine, LPC

Psychotherapist

Healthy connections provide for relationships wherein we feel integrated, empowered, and validated. When these connections are damaged, we can suffer physical pain, social isolation, instability and internal fragmentation. It’s at these times, a supportive advocate can assist in repairing damaged or lost connections through a therapeutic rapport. Gabrielle’s work is done in relationship with you, exploring how stress, trauma, addiction, or disease has impacted your connections and deciding which ones need to be repaired to restore balance to your life.

Gabrielle brings 24 years of connecting with others to my practice using diverse modalities including Trauma-Focused Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy, Dance/Movement Therapy, Internal Family Systems, and mindfulness practices. She has assisted individuals in repairing damaged connections to their bodies, families, as well as environment, and flourish in these relationships.

Gabrielle also has extensive experience addressing PTSD, vicarious trauma, mood/dissociative disorders, sexually reactive youth, and grief. Fostering safety, dignity, and transparency within our therapeutic alliance, she hopes to assist in strengthening the underpinnings of all other relationships. Integrating all experiences with compassion and respect is her ideal goal.
