Hello! My name is Emily Myers and I am a licensed professional clinical counselor through the state of Ohio. I have over 14 years in the counseling profession and over 20 years of work experience in customer service or a helping occupation. I graduated from Youngstown State University with a Bachelor's in Early Childhood Education. I taught preschool for a few years and decided to go back for my Master's in Community Counseling from the same university. I graduated in 2009 summa cum laude. Since then, I have held a variety of positions in the counseling field including depression, anxiety, substance abuse, children and family centered jobs. I tend to have an eclectic approach to counseling based on what the client is wanting from the services. I use a lot of client centered, solution focused, and cognitive behavioral techniques. My sessions are always client driven with what the client is wanting to discuss or work on at that time. I'm excited to have this opportunity to work with you!

Emily has been my saving grace. I was really struggling when I first saw her. I can usually pull myself out of a funk, but this time I was really stuck. It just took a couple of sessions with her to help me feel better and regain my footing. She is kind and caring, but not afraid to tell me when I'm being ridiculous (in not so many words :) ). She has been so helpful to me!

Emily really hears me when I talk. There's no judgement and in her responses she's mindful, understanding and compassionate. She never pushes me beyond comfort and is always so genuine in our conversations. I cannot recommend her enough. Working with her only a relatively short time, she has already helped me in many ways and I am forever grateful.

Emily is very attentive, caring and totally gets me. She checks up on me throughout the week and sends me positive mindset exercises to help keep my negative self-thoughts at bay. I couldn’t ask for a better therapist!

Emily has been great and has worked with me on everything I have asked her to. She offers resources and ways to work on things that have been very helpful to me.

I feel so comfortable with Emily. She respects my boundaries, but also challenges me. I feel understood, and related to. My previous experiences have been awful, this is the first time I’ve felt at ease with someone.
