About me

I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor with 22 years of experience counseling primarily adults in the state of Indiana. I believe in the practice of "unconditional positive regard," meaning I will never be judgmental or shaming during my time with you. Instead, I will be sincere, engaging, supportive and encouraging you in your journey towards a better you.
My experience in counseling includes those with Depression, Grief, Bipolar Disorder, Anxiety, ADHD, Relationship issues, Abuse (sexual and domestic), Shame-based Family of Origin issues, Co-Dependency, and Addictions.
In therapy I use a blend of Adlerian and Cognitive Behavioral therapies, which focuses on how our thinking, feeling, and behavior can drive dysfunctional living, and
conversely, how thoughts, feelings, and behaviors can be changed to produce a healthier, productive lifestyle. To that end, in addition to talk therapy, I use didactic, experiential, and the use of parables to help facilitate your progress. The use of "homework" I find keeps clients engaged in the therapy process while not in session.
If you choose to work with me, together we will make a plan of treatment based on your goals for seeking treatment, and I will walk with you every step of the way.
I am fully aware you have tried everything else before walking through the virtual door and I respect you for your courage in seeking help at this time.

Emily has played a huge part in helping get my life turned around for the better. She is so caring and patient with you as you talk through things. Joining better help and having Emily as my therapist has changed my life more than I could have imagined.

Easy to talk to from the start. Even in the first session she asked just the right questions to make me have one of those "aha" moments. That's a sign of a good therapist in my opinion..... really getting someone to 'see' their own stuff.

Speaking with Emily feels more like speaking with an aunt or someone you look up to than it feels like being in "Therapy". She does not miss a thing and even when I first met her and told her about a confusing work experience involving many people, she kept track of the name of each person and what happened. She listens very actively and anything she says is very specific to what I was speaking about. She helped me go from trembling anxiety/Depression/Xanax to being happily employed with a job where I have set boundaries for myself & my employer and I make time for myself & enjoy my life and family again. I am very grateful to her.

I am privileged to work with Emily McCall. She is very knowledgeable and helped me work through hard to break (change) personality traits. I am a better person, still a work in progress. Thanks!!

Emily is amazing. I’ve been to a couple local therapists and I’ve never felt as comfortable as I do with Emily. I look forward to every session. She makes me feel heard and seen. The homework she assigns is very helpful. It’s been really eye opening to discover certain parts about myself that no one has ever helped me work through before.
