I practice inclusivity of all cultures and identities. I have authentic curiosity in what makes us all unique and aim to foster a supportive environment to address mental health needs.

Emma is a board certified Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner (PMHNP) with a passion for working with adults struggling with a range of mental health disorders including but not limited to depression, anxiety, OCD, PTSD and bipolar.


Emma came to work in mental health because she believes that everyone deserve hope for a better tomorrow, and she is grateful for the opportunity to do her part in helping people feel better. Her client-centered approach makes care collaborative, educational, and non-judgmental. She likes to help clients focus on their strengths and wants to reduce the stigma around seeking medication, therapy, or a combination of approaches so her patients can thrive.


Emma works at Austin's cutting edge clinic, Heading Health which provides novel treatment options of intramuscular ketamine and Spravato. Emma utilizes a trauma informed, and strength based focus in supporting clients in their healing process.


She provides telepsych visits for initial consults, medication management and follow up visits while also working multiple days a week in the clinic providing ketamine and spravato treatments. In conjunction with medication management, Emma encourages a multidisciplinary approach to mental wellness. Heading Health has an incredible team of therapists that work remotely.
