"Emily was so beyond helpful in getting my creative ideas in order. I came to her with so many ideas but not way to organize them. I left feeling refreshed and ready to keep working towards my goals" - Abigial Jesse, Artist
"When stepping back in to lead a Shakespeare workshop for the first time in over a year, I thought a walk through for my workshop plans would be a good idea. Unscripted Healing gave me much more than that. Emily was able to help my own insecurity and fear of “doing a bad job” or “saying the wrong thing” get out of the way so that I could be fully present with the students in the classroom. She did it with patience and empathy and I can’t recommend her enough—You and your students deserve it." - Taylor Harris, Actor.
