Emma Nathanson is a fourth year Doctoral Candidate in Michigan State University’s School Psychology PhD Program. She earned a Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology at The College of Wooster in 2016 and a Master’s Degree in School Psychology from Michigan State University in 2017. Emma has experience conducting special education evaluations, consulting with teachers and parents, and leading academic and social-emotional interventions in the school setting. She has also provided intensive behavioral therapy to children with selective mutism in the private practice setting. Emma is excited to join the G3 team and continue to develop and generalize her skills to private practice, under the supervision of Dr. Galvin.
Emma uses a variety of evidenced-based practices, primarily focusing on cognitive behavioral and behavioral therapies for school-aged children and youth struggling with academics, anxiety disorders, behavior management, executive functioning, social skills, and depression. Emma’s goal is to use evidence-based strategies and a problem-solving lens to help children, adolescents, and the adults in their lives to use positive coping strategies to address such challenges while increasing well-being. Given her background in school psychology, Emma’s competencies also include administering, interpreting, and reporting results from cognitive and achievement assessments and social-emotional rating scales. Additionally, Emma’s school-based perspective in a private practice setting is conducive to her consultant role with parents, teachers, and schools.
