About me

Hello, my name is Emily Minear and I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor. I have been working as a professional counselor for over 5 years now. Before I was a licensed counselor I also worked in a psychiatric hospital setting on adult and geriatric units. I have practiced in both inpatient and outpatient settings. I am also certified and have many years of experience working in Substance Use and Addictions. This is something I am very passionate about. One thing to note is that my schedule right now consists of mostly mornings.

Emily is the perfect fit for me. I have even mentioned to her how surprised I am that I was matched with such a good fit on the first time. We clicked from our first meeting and I can’t imagine having another therapist.

Emily is the best! She strikes the perfect balance between being understanding and compassionate while also pushing me to stretch beyond my comfort zone so I can learn and grow. Her guidance has helped me become more confident and given me tools I need to work through grief, anxiety, uncertainty, and anger. Some of the things I've been struggling with the most this year. I can't recommend her enough!
