I am a counselor licensed in Indiana and Ohio with over 7 years of experience. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, addiction and recovery, stress management, and family relationships. I also helped many people who have experienced physical trauma or emotional abuse.
My counseling style is warm and interactive with some humor and sarcasm thrown in for good measure. I believe in treating everyone with respect, compassion, and empathy, and I don't believe in stigmatizing labels. My approach combines cognitive-behavioral, mindfulness, and motivational interviewing styles. I will work to tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet your unique needs and goals.
It takes some major courage to seek a more fulfilling, healthier, and happier life. Change is not always easy but the effort can be well worth it. If you are ready to take the next step, I am here to support you.
I look forward to working with you!

I really enjoyed talking with Emily kurtzhals . We have a plan we are working on to help me with depression.
Provides a more personal, conversational style to therapy/counseling that I feel really helps me and understands how to relay information in a relatable way.
Emily is very caring, compassionate and understanding. I would highly recommend her.
Emily is great, she listens, gives great suggestions for dealing with issues, try’s to help as much as possible and checks and responds to messages in a timely manner. Really appreciate her willingness to help.
