About Emily

Hello! I'm the author of The Power of Meaning: Crafting a Life That Matters. In my book, articles, and essays, I draw on psychology, philosophy and literature to write about the human experience—why we are the way we are and how we can find grace and meaning in a world that is full of suffering. My writing has appeared in theWall Street Journal, New York TimesTimeThe Atlantic, and other publications.
