About me

One of my favorite quotes, by Robert Frost, is: "The best way out is through." It is a brave action to enter counseling; I am so glad you are considering this! Walking through a difficult time, topic, or concern can feel overwhelming. My role is to help you feel supported, empowered, and heard along the way. I believe you have what you need within you to create what you hope for, and am here to help you find what you are searching for.

I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker, (LCSW). I gained my Masters of Social Work from the University of Texas at San Antonio. My approach to counseling is strength-focused, warm, and interactive. I utilize an assortment of reliable interventions, including but not limited to, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Solution-Focused Therapy, and Narrative Therapy. My professional background is diverse in working with populations such as adolescents, military families, LGBTQ, and parents, from diverse cultural backgrounds. I practice with intent to help clients gain direction and clarity that I feel each client has the ability to access. I operate within the understanding that each individual is worthy of having a place where they feel safe and important, while visiting struggles and internal questions.

I look forward to working with you!

Reviews

These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Emily Perez. 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.

Written on Jul 18, 2021 after therapy with Emily for 1 year and 4 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, addictions, relationship issues, trauma and abuse, grief, intimacy-related issues, and self esteem

There is no way I could say enough about Emily. She is one of the most caring, loving, dedicated, passionate, and masterful people in the talk therapy realm. She held my hand through some of the toughest moments of my life and helped me process some really difficult things to grapple with. I never felt overlooked. I always felt heard. It can be extremely difficult to open up and let someone enter your mind. I always felt as though I had the space to say whatever I needed to say, and it would be received with compassion and understanding. She has a great sense of humor. She has a delicate touch but will hold you accountable. The thing I think I liked most in working with Emily is her passion for what she does. I don't know if she just really likes helping people, or is some kind of angel sent from the clouds to bring peace on Earth, but I highly recommend Emily Perez as a person to talk to if you get the chance. Honestly Emily, thank you so much for being there for me when I was alone and couldn't be there for myself! I will always have love and gratitude for you! I'm a taller, more confident, and overall happier individual after meeting you. From the bottom of my heart, Thank you!

Emily helped me through one of the most difficult experiences of my life. I really don't know how I would have done it without her guidance, affirmations, and kindness. She is the best!

Emily is an avid listener and provides me with clear and helpful insight/advice. I don't get any feelings of judgement from her, and I get the sense that she truly does care about trying to help. I have appreciated her kindness as well as her devotion to what she does. I would recommend Emily to any friend or family member who is considering therapy.

Emily’s responses to my concerns and struggles are so empowering! She finds things that I am already doing well and praises me for them and encourages me to continue. She is so good at validating my concerns, I feel heard every time we communicate.

Work with me!
