Emerge was developed in 2017 by Elizabeth Vogt and Jamie Larson Jones to bridge the worlds of psychoanalytic thought with modern neurobiological research and the ancient and intuitive wisdom of the mind-body connection.

While they all share a passion for the Emerge mission, each therapist has their own way of working. Take a moment to get to know our great team here, look over our services, or send us a note and we’ll help you find the best fit for your needs.

Therapists at Emerge treat children, adolescents, adults, and couples; explore our clinician bios to find a good fit or contact us to speak with someone who can help make a suggestion based on your needs.

Emerge therapists welcome people from all communities, cultures, and identities. We value an understanding of health, meaning, and thriving that takes your lived experience into account. We take responsibility for our own education while also hoping to learn from our patients. We stand against violence, particularly as perpetrated towards the BIPOC and LGBTQIA+ community, in both overt and systemic ways, every time, every day.

Aleiya Penn

Adults, Couples
I am a psychodynamically informed therapist who is committed to helping clients live with more ease and joy in the face of suffering. I have experience working with adult clients and couples across the lifespan with a variety of presenting concerns including anxiety and panic, depression, perinatal mood and anxiety disorders, life stage and relationship stress, and forms of developmental, religious, and sexual trauma.

Anders Jader

Adults, Couples, SPMI
In my therapeutic approach, I honor the depth of human experience and view each person as more than just a collection of symptoms. My approach is holistic, welcoming the mental, physical, emotional, and spiritual dimensions of life, as well as each person’s connection to the world around them. A fundamental component of successful therapy is that the relationship feels warm, safe, and free of any and all judgment.

Claudia Coleman

Adults, Couples, Family, Kids, Teens
I have worked in a variety of clinical settings and have experience working with children, adolescents, adults, families and couples. My work is strongly influenced by psychoanalytic theory in combination with a commitment to social justice by emphasizing intersectional, anti-oppressive, spiritual and multicultural frameworks. I also incorporate yoga, expressive arts, play therapy, and somatic therapy to provide other mediums in which my clients can communicate and heal.

Colette Molloy

Adults, Family, Infant, Kids, Teens
I have experience working with children, youth and adults in a variety of modalities including individual, couples and family therapy. My therapeutic approach is individualized, culturally responsive, trauma informed and influenced by developmental, attachment-based, and psychodynamic theories. I view the therapeutic relationship and safety therein as a central part of the treatment process. I am both a clinical supervisor and a psychotherapist.

Deanna Pelley

Adults, Teens
Often the things that cause us pain in the present are connected to pain from the past. I build safe and collaborative relationships with my patients. Together we will work to understand the many facets of life and relationships that cause you pain thus helping you to make sense of your own mind so you can live your fullest life.

elizabeth vogt

MA, PsyD, LP
Adults, Teens
I work with my patients to help them understand longstanding patterns in thinking and relating, with the goal of helping them experience increasing freedom and satisfaction in life. I see adolescents and adults dealing with life transitions, anxiety, and high-functioning neurodivergence.

jamie larson jones

Adults, Couples, Teens
Early in life we develop ways of being that were essential for survival at one point, but can create difficulties in work, relationships, and other aspects of our lives in the present. We are often unaware (unconscious) of these patterns or ways of being in the world that we develop over time. Through warm and collaborative work I help individuals and couples address these difficulties. I have extensive experience working with people with relationship difficulties, trauma, dissociative disorders, eating disorders, depression, and anxiety

Jessica Osfar

My clinical experience includes working in a variety of counseling settings and levels of care with a wide range of concerns including, but not limited to depression, anxiety, and OCD. Women’s issues and somatic concerns are my areas of special interest.

Josh Meendering

MA, PsyD, LP
Adults, Couples, Teens
Some people find themselves feeling stuck with certain thoughts and feelings. Others find themselves repeating behaviors that lead to unproductive and problematic situations in their life. Therapy is a process where these concerns can be discussed and worked through from a nonjudgmental standpoint. My therapeutic approach is to assist you in reaching your personal or relationship goals with more effective ways of being. The adolescents and adults I work with are understood as individuals that have their own unique attitudes, beliefs, and experiences.

Kaylene Zickmund

Adults, Early childhood, Family, Kids, Teens
I offer individual therapy to clients of all ages who are looking to ease symptoms of anxiety and depression, improve relationships and communication, or who simply wish to live a more mindful and connected life. I approach treatment from a multiculturally competent lens, and aim to offer gender-affirming care to my clients. I offer a non-judgmental space where I strive to build a strong foundation of trust with my clients so that we can work together to gain insight on life’s stressors and struggles from a client-centered, strength-based treatment perspective.

Kelly Klosterman

Adults, Kids, Teens
I work with children (ages 3+), teens, and adults using a variety of approaches, including play therapy, expressive arts therapy, and psychodynamic psychotherapy. The most important part of my work is developing a strong therapeutic relationship with you that is attuned to your unique process and needs.

Liz DeNio

Adults, Teens
The relationships we form early in life impact how we communicate with ourselves and with others today. Ways we have learned to cope with challenges in the past may no longer be effective in serving our current needs. With warmth, support, and curiosity, we can bring awareness to our patterns and begin reflecting on how we would like to go about living in the present and in the future. Exploring what is personally important and meaningful in life is a unique process for every person. Empathy, self-compassion, mindfulness, and psychodynamic theory are at the center of my practice.

Maisa Boyte

Adults, Teens
I currently focus on working with teens and adults who are experiencing depression, anxiety, trauma, disordered eating and relationship concerns. I aim to create an environment where the client feels supported and empowered in order to explore past and present experiences. I draw from a relational psychodynamic theory and my work focuses on creating tolerance for difficult emotions and increasing self understanding.

Meghan Grahs

Adults, Kids, Teens
I am a psychodynamically-informed therapist with experience working with children, adolescents, and adults. I work with a broad range of clinical issues, and have a particular interest in working with anxiety, relationship stress, codependency, people-pleasing, perfectionism, disordered eating, and body image. I have former experience working in a University counseling center, and I particularly enjoy working with college students. My work is explicitly anti-racist, anti-oppressive, and trauma-informed.

Rachel Nycklemoe

Adults, Kids, Teens
I have experience working with all ages in individual therapy, and have a particular interest in working with children and their families, teenagers, and young adults, navigating the unique challenges of these developmental phases. I am a psychodynamically oriented therapist and also incorporate play therapy, expressive therapies, mindfulness techniques, and somatic principles into my work. With warmth, curiosity, and openness, I strive to create a space where you can feel safe to invite all aspects of yourself for us to explore. I believe our current pain, struggle, or dissatisfaction is often rooted in our past experiences, and by exploring and understanding your experience together, we can free you up to be your most authentic self, moving through life with greater ease and lessened suffering. I am honored to partner with my patients in this difficult and rewarding investment in yourself.
