About Me

Welcome! My name is Emily Vierra and I'm a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist in California. Many of us experience difficulties at different points in our lives and need help to overcome these obstacles. It takes courage to ask for help and I commend you for reaching out. Many of us need a safe place to share our feelings and I am here to help you talk openly without judgment. I approach therapy with respect, compassion, and empathy. I will work collaboratively with you to help you identify your needs and work through these difficult experiences.

I have over 13 years experience working with individuals, families, and couples dealing with a wide range of issues in numerous settings. I have experience working with all ages, from very young children to elderly adults. I am currently working with foster children ages 0-18 in an outpatient clinic as well as their parents, foster parents, and other family members. I also am currently working in a private practice setting with children and adults who have been a victim of a crime. This includes sexual/physical abuse, domestic violence, and the death of a loved one. Prior to this, I have experience working at a hospice clinic, an outpatient clinic with individuals, couples, and families dealing with daily life stressors, and a clinic with at-risk children displaying behavioral issues at home/school. These positions have given me extensive experience treating depression, anxiety, stress, suicidal/homicidal ideations, PTSD, trauma and abuse, relationship issues, family conflict, parent/child issues, adjustment disorders, anger management, at-risk behaviors, conduct disorders, self-esteem/self-worth issues, and so forth.

I take an eclectic approach with therapy and will tailor my treatment based on your specific needs and goals. I will utilize different modalities including Cognitive-Behavioral, Solution-Focused, Family Systems, Humanistic, Client-Centered, etc.

In terms of availability, I check and respond to messages several times a day. I am flexible with my schedule and understand that you may have obligations during the day and am happy to accommodate most schedules, including nights and weekends. I look forward to working with you!

Emily is a great therapist. I feel like she listens and understands, no matter how trivial or huge the issue is. She offers plenty of resources that are genuinely helpful. Really easy to trust and talk to.

Having been paired with Emily for a few months now, I can say that her approach with me has made me feel seen/heard/understood. She's provided tools that help in hard moments that used to overwhelm, and her demeanor helps me feel like I'm not alone in the decisions I now make. I feel a lot more balanced thanks to her work, and life has been improving steadily as a result. She's been absolutely amazing.

Emily is so kind and amazing she always helps me when I’m having a rough day. She helps me when I’m going through stuff by letting me rant or by making me realize the reality of the situation.

Emily is so good for me. She is very understanding and offers suggestions on how to get through my tough times. She has truly been such a great help. I am so fortunate to have found her on Better Help!

Written by D.I. on Mar 19, 2019 after counseling with Emily for 4 months on issues concerning stress, anxiety, family conflicts, trauma and abuse, grief, self esteem, anger management, and career difficulties

Emily has been very helpful, caring and supportive. I have unloaded a lot of childhood trauma onto her and she patiently listened, without judgement. It is important to be able to speak to someone without holding anything back to gain control over the past and move on. I recommend her to all my friends.

Emily is the kindest soul I’ve ever met. I was lost before having her as my therapist. She really listens to me and always provides me with great feedback. I fully trust her expertise. She always helps me see things with clarity and for that I am thankful.

Written by D.A. on Dec 06, 2018 after counseling with Emily for 1 month on issues concerning stress, anxiety, and trauma and abuse

I have never felt understood by a therapist until Emily. We've barely begun our process and my levels of depression and anxiety are already going down.
