Emily Mitchell, LPC
Hello! My name is Emily Mitchell and I am a Licensed Professional Counselor, and an Oregon native. I have been a practicing therapist for the last several years in the capacity of community mental health, school district mental health programs, and now with The Healing Haven.
I believe in the importance of collaboration within the client-therapist relationship, as this therapeutic alliance creates a foundation in which clients and their families are able to trust and thrive. My approach is a combination of client-centered, trauma-informed, and holistic as I consider clients the experts of their difficulties. I find that clients and families often have a good idea of what they want to achieve in treatment, and it is my job to facilitate their journey in obtaining those goals. Through my style of being genuine, empathetic, and providing unconditional positive regard, clients can experience successful outcomes in their treatment. I am trained in EMDR therapy techniques, a psychotherapy that encourages clients to heal from symptoms and emotional distress that are the result of traumatic or disturbing life experiences. As a community member, I find it important to encourage continuing education serving as a board member with the Oregon Board for Play Therapy and utilize play therapy techniques with younger clients.
I provide individual therapy to those who may be experiencing:
- Stress, anxiety, and worry
- Depression and mood issues
- Relationship and attachment issues
- Life adjustments and change
- Shame and guilt
- Grief and loss
- Child/Adolescent emotional challenges
I welcome all races, all religions, all sexual orientations, all gender identities and expressions, all abilities, all ethnicities, all bodies, ALL PEOPLE.
