Emma Rixmann, LCSW
I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker with significant experience engaging a variety of populations in the field. I greatly enjoy the diversity private practice work gives me, as it provides me the ability to work with kids and teens, individuals, families and couples presenting with a wide variety of diagnoses.
My clinical specialities are pain management, hospice and palliative care, complex disease management, and end-of-life planning. I enjoy working with young adults managing chronic illness, helping families find meaning through their illness journeys, and assisting others in maintaining their independence.
In my work I often utilize frameworks such as Trauma Focused-Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), and Gottman Therapy. I tend to be solution-focused in nature, employ psycho-education and was trained in a highly medical model of social work.
When not “social working” I can be found on my farm in Amelia County training rescue horses, playing with my pitbulls, gardening, reading memoirs, attending Richmond festivals or cooking
