Emily Short Steiner, LMFT
I am a licensed marriage and family therapist. I believe that our challenges and strengths emerge from a combination of our personality, biology, family upbringing, environment, stage of life, and current relationships. My goal as a therapist is to help individuals, couples, and families make sense of these influences and understand the context that affects them. My second goal is to support my clients in making the changes they want within this context. I collaborate with my clients to find what works for them in therapy be it validation, challenge, comfort, support, guidance, or a good laugh.

Jessica Sempowski, Post-Master’s Intern
Hello! It is my hope to provide all clients with a safe, non-judgmental place to develop and learn. I want to become a resource for you to use as you navigate life’s hardships. Most of all, though, I want to be a welcoming and inviting person that you turn to in times of need. I have four years’ experience working with college-aged individuals during my time at Wilson. I briefly worked at an inpatient drug treatment center. I have been at Phoenix as an intern since January, and in that time, I have seen a wide variety of clients, primarily younger kids and older adults.
