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.

These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Emily Minear. We don’t pay anyone to provide their review and they are all made voluntarily. Some people's experience receiving therapy with BetterHelp might be different.
Emily has the demeanor that works for me, but this is because I hear knowledge, listening, understanding, and linking my concerns and challenges together. She is so much better than the first therapist I had. I view her to really care and not just fulfill the session. She seems to care and understands. That means a lot and is powerful
Being able to talk with Emily has made a big difference for me.
Emily is wonderful!!!
Emily is great! Capable, knowledgeable. Helps me figure out my life and issues.
Emily is awesome!! She is so down to earth and easy to talk to but also holds me accountable. She listens to understand and provides valuable feedback and tools to help get me to where I want to be. I can bring my full, messy self and know that I won't be judged. Instead, I feel welcomed, accepted, validated, and challenged in the best possible way. I've been going to in-person therapists off and on for over 15 years and I've come farther in just 3 sessions with Emily than I have with years of sessions with other therapists. She is amazing!!!
I have talked to other therapist in the past and a lot of them focused on situations from other patients that they have instead of focusing on me and my problems. Emily has not done that one and I really appreciate that because my situation and my problems are so much different than other people's. I would call myself a disaster on some days but she has been very helpful and I greatly appreciate getting to work with her
I really enjoyed Emily. She is a very personable therapist. I’m looking forward to my next session!
You’re the best!
Emily is a great counselor to work with! She is understanding, patient, but still able to nail down the root causes of my issues. I would highly recommend her!
Emily seems to truly care about her clients. She helps me see good in troubling situations. She offers ways to think more positively, gives me assignments, and tells of available resources.
She’s absolutely Fantastic! Super patient and understanding. I feel heard all the time. Love her challenges after each call :)
Emily is great and I have loved working with her.
She’s kind and easy to talk to.
She is super kind and really awesome. I was worried about BetterHelp because I'm not super conversational and She can get me talking. I really like how she is super curious to learn about the interests of her patients. In my previous attempts at counseling I felt like I wasn't cared about but with Emily I feel like she not only cares about my mental health she cares about me as a person.
Emily is amazing. I’ve had a very rough couple of months dealing with a loved ones death because of their addiction, and Emily has been phenomenal in supporting me and helping me understand. She is thoughtful, kind, empathetic, and very relatable. Her sessions are always super helpful and it almost feels like I’m talking to a friend instead of a therapist or counselor. She has provided me with challenges to work on the areas I need to work on and provided practical steps and help along the way. Grief, trauma, and addiction are not easy subjects and I truly appreciate Emily helping me through my struggles.
Emily puts me at ease and has given some useful advise for action steps. I’m enjoying my counseling with her.
It took me a long time to accept that I needed to seek help; while visiting with Emily is only one facet of what I'm doing to improve myself and my mental health, she has been a HUGE help and an amazing resource. Especially being so accessible through this program.
I've been working with Emily for just a couple weeks and it's hands down the best decision I've made for myself lately. From our first video session, we connected so well and I felt comfortable talking to her immediately. I look forward to our sessions each week and feel excited to continue these services. I would 100% recommend Emily and BetterHelp to friends and family.
Emily is great, she understands me so well and gets where I'm coming from, I'd recommend her to a close friend or family member in a heartbeat
Emily has helped me pin point and clarify what I am thinking and feeling about issues in my life I was struggling with when I started therapy. She is very good at listening to me and giving me tips and tools to use when communicating with people in my life - family members, spouse, coworkers, etc. about those difficult topics. Even when she knows that I won't like what she has to say, she tells me anyway and pushes me to better myself and challenge my ideas and thinking patterns! I would highly recommend Emily as a therapist. She is kind, she is calm, she is understanding, and she can even make me laugh when I'm crying. She always seems to know what to say to help me navigate through my life without telling me what to do. She trusts me to make those decisions and supports me in my choices without judgement.
Emily is amazing! It is usually very difficult for me to open up and talk to people but she is very easy to talk to. A great listener and provides a lot of helpful feedback! I would recommend her to anyone.
She was very understanding and neutral to both sides. Gave us goals to work towards and helped us understand each other better.
Emily has done a wonderful job and really helped us.
I really enjoy her honesty. I have recommended her to friends who were looking for counseling. I look forward to our sessions each week!
I think she’s super great at what she does, she listens, and offers her advice and help. She even allows room for improvement by welcoming challenges in your daily life
Emily is awesome! She takes the time to listen to your concerns and to help you overcome your barriers. She also focuses on the positives which really helps. I definitely felt a connection right away! I cannot wait to see where this takes me!
She was just incredible. She understood me and didnt make me feel like I was wasting my time as I have felt in standard therapy years ago.
I'm NOT canceling my account because of her but because of hard times. I loved my sessions with her and would love to do this again with her when I'm more financially stable. Thanks and farewell Emily. <3
Phenomenal counselor and human being. Every session is casual (yet professional), informative and fun. I always walk away feeling better and with goals to work on to help me in my future. She treats me like a normal person and not someone to analyze, which I greatly appreciate. I highly recommend her.
Shes awesome! Very confident and very easy to talk to. She also shows interest in your hobbies and thing like that! shes super cool!
Emily is thoughtful and a great listener. She provides strong feedback and helpful tools.
Very friendly and professional.
I am someone who does not like counseling but Emily has helped me overcome that and I have begun to work through issues that have been stealing my joy. She is very understanding and supportive.
I really have enjoyed working with Emily. She’s kind, understanding, and always willing to listen. She doesn’t make you feel like you are a burden to her when you come to her with your issues which is always great. I will enjoy working with her for the next couple months!
