emelie gagliardo, MA, LPC

Hey there, internet! I’m Emelie, owner and lead therapist at Sprout Therapy PDX and cohost of the #Adulting Therapists podcast.

If you’re reading this, I already know you’re struggling. Maybe you’re having trouble “adulting”. You’re feeling like every one else seems to have it all together, why can’t you? Your anxiety is getting worse and worse, day by day, and you just want it to stop.

I’m here to tell you that this is not the best your life can be.
It will get better- and we’re here to help you get there.

counseling in portland

We know how hard it is to find someone who gets it. Who’s relatable and real. Who’s going to be there to weather your storms and get down and dirty with the weird stuff that makes us all human.
Someone who you can laugh with, cry with, or even yell with.

We just want you to know- we are here to help.
