I have worked with individuals and families to overcome challenges for over five years. As a therapist I believe we all have the ability to unlock our own healing potential. I have experience working wiuth children, adolescents, adults and couples and enjoy having a mix of all ages on my caseload. My treatment approach varies depending on the need of my clients. I work mostly from an Adlerian approach to gain insight into who my clients are as people and what they have experienced and then draw from many different approaches to help my clients meet their treatment goals including; Cognitive Behvioral Therapy, Solution Focused Therapy, Emotionally Focused Therapy and Mindfulness. I will also often use Art and Narrative therapy techniques depending on the interests of my clients. I have experience working in multiple settings, such as private practice, schools, and family homes. Working from a systems approach I believe one person in a family system can make a change and subsequently the rest will also transform.
I completed my graduate degree in Marriage and Family Therapy at Adler Graduate school with a Bachelors in Psychology from Argosy University in Minnesota. Having great professors and supervisors from many theoretical frameworks has given me a wide array of knowledge and skills to individually tailor to my clients . I am also an avid reader of mental health and self-help books and can't remember the last time I read a fiction novel because I fell in love with my field and wanted to have plenty of resources to recommend to clients. I enjoy spending time with my family, gardening, travel, arts and crafts, fishing and anything to do with the great outdoors! I love to help my clients discover what truly brings them happiness and help them overcome roadblocks to finding meaning, purpose and connection in their lives.

Emily offers so much support to my life. Feel significant progress in a month. Thank you!
I have only been working with Emily for a couple weeks, but I can already begin to see and feel how impactful she has been on my mental health journey. She is a great listener and really grasps who I am as a person. She gives me great tips and tools that are accessible to me and effective.
I’ve been working with Emily for a while now, and she’s been nothing but respectful, helpful, and insightful. She’s an excellent listener and really makes me feel heard. Her expertise and empathy allows her to give thoughtful and insightful feedback and answers to my questions.
Emily is wonderful. She has diverse experience and a depth of knowledge and compassion. She has really helped me a lot in a short period of time.
Emily is great. Very responsive and listens to everything I have to say. She gives me new perspectives on things and supports me in what I am going through.
Emily is a wonderful listener, asks great questions and I really feel like I can trust her insights/advice.
I have been working with Emily Mcinnis for about a month and a half now but it feels longe due to the fact that I feel completely comfortable and like I am able to be vulnerable. I came to Emily at first because with covid and all the things going this year, my relationships in and out of work and mostly my romantic one stared to struggle and it showed on the way I interact with people. I was not me any more physically and emotionally and I felt like I was digging my self deeper and deeper into a hole. A friend introduced me to betterhelp and although there’s still a lot of work to do, I feel more confident and secure in my self that I can become even better than the person I was before. Because now I am actually dealing with my traumas, emotions and actions that come when I am triggered because I have Emily and her tips and tasks to help me along the way. I also love betterhelp because I have help everyday at tip of my fingers, it’s amazing and it’s my favorite part about betterhelp!
Emily is really nice and supportive
Emily is great!
