Practicing Since: 2016
Emily often uses cognitive behavioral and mindfulness techniques combined with person-centered therapy. For her, counseling is all about empowerment and giving clients an environment that makes them feel accepted. Feeling fully appreciated encourages clients’ resilience and self-worth. This type of environment makes it easier to explore topics important – be it home life, spirituality, relationships, stress, etc. After all, the client is the expert on him/herself!
Emily has been working in mental health since 2012 when she completed her undergraduate degree. She pursued her Masters in Clinical Mental Health counseling because her belief is that long-term counseling is a powerful tool to aid people in not just coping with but also thriving in their life circumstances. Emily’s experience includes working at the Rockford Center in Inpatient care. She primarily worked with adults with chronic mental health issues and suicidality. She completed a large part of her graduate internship at Harmonious Mind and did crisis intervention work at Affiliated Sante Group working with children and adolescents. Emily believes in the importance of outpatient therapy as a preventative measure to give clients the extra non-judgmental support they need.
