Emmily Weldon

(MS, LPCC, LMHC)

About Me

Do you find you are expecting perfection from yourself? Telling yourself that you aren’t good enough or not smart enough? Do you feel stuck and not able to make progress because those negative thoughts are getting in the way of you being able to reach your goals? We really are our own worst enemy and our critical evaluations of ourselves are often much harsher than we would ever judge anyone else.

Do you wish that you had someone to talk to about these struggles who is safe and unbiased? You are not alone! Working with a therapist that is compassionate and understanding can help you let go of the past and dramatically change your life.

My name is Emmily Weldon and I own and operate Mindful Solutions, a professional counseling service. I would love the opportunity to offer support and understanding to you in navigating your relationship with yourself and learning how to incorporate self-compassion into your life. I provide counseling services via tele-counseling format in Iowa as an LMHC (Licensed Mental Health Counselor) and in California as an LPCC (Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor).

Coming to therapy, no matter the reason takes an incredible amount of courage. We are equals and I believe in a true collaboration with respect, sensitivity, and compassion. I am only available via messaging here on BetterHelp.

Emily helped me get through stuff I have going on with my brother. She's very helpful and offers great advice on how to deal with family issues.

Emmily is very kind and understanding! Every time we speak I feel better and better each time. She gives me good methods to deal with my anxiety and helps me be more rational and optimistic.

Emily is really great. Going through her, I have seen a lot of progress and more strength in myself than before or with my very first counselor.

Written by C.A. on Apr 13, 2020 after counseling with Emmily for 6 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, self esteem, and bipolar disorder

She is awesome and very good at her job. I think one of the ways to recognize a good therapist is when you leave your appointments with your your typically tangled thoughts, more unraveled and clear. I leave appointments with Emmily feeling that way every time.

Emily is the best counselor!

Written by K.A. on Mar 31, 2020 after counseling with Emmily for 3 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, and self esteem

I'm really thankful that I found a therapist who is understanding and listens so well. I was terrified of counseling and opening up to a stranger. But, she made me feel safe and comfortable. I'm still working on a lot, but I and those around me, can tell the difference she has made.

Emmily has been great. She is very attentive during sessions, and very prompt with her responses outside of the sessions. She has been flexible, understanding, and accommodating when ever she is able to be. I would recommend her to anyone seeking a counselor.

Written by J.A. on Jan 17, 2020 after counseling with Emmily for 4 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, self esteem, anger management, coping with life changes, and compassion fatigue

She is so attentive, patient, and offers some great perspective and advice. She's been a huge help when I am going through a tough time. And I really feel heard and reassured when I speak to her. Emmily was so easy to open up to and I really appreciate her insight and expertise.

Emily has changed my life for the best. She listened to everything and give me the best guidance to help me out with what makes me happy . I can definitely say that she truly taught me how to be happy in the present and take it one day at a time.

Emmily has been great, always checks on me which is really nice.

Written by K.I. on Dec 18, 2019 after counseling with Emmily for 2 weeks on issues concerning stress, anxiety, self esteem, and anger management

Emmily is a superb active listener. I do not feel judged ever on the things I say. Although we have had less than a month of a connection, I feel like she does a great job of having me express myself and open up about myself which I never do to anyone. I appreciate her for helping me feel empowered and making me feel welcome to share myself to her.

Written by M.O. on Dec 16, 2019 after counseling with Emmily for 2 weeks on issues concerning relationship issues, grief, and intimacy-related issues

Emmily is a natural therapist. I feel like I’m chatting with a friend and she has great insights into my various thought processes. She’s caring and gentle, and I don’t feel judged in any way no matter what I share with her. I highly recommend her!

Written by M.I. on Sep 04, 2019 after counseling with Emmily for 2 weeks on issues concerning stress, anxiety, relationship issues, and self esteem

I've tried a number of different counselors and therapists, but none have been as helpful as Emmily! She does a fantastic job of making you feel comfortable, helping you identify the sources of your issues, and offering practical, tangible exercises and advice to help you work through them. She responds very quickly and offers frequent and convenient live session times, and is all around awesome.

Written by H.E. on Aug 27, 2019 after counseling with Emmily for 2 months on issues concerning stress, anxiety, and relationship issues

Emmily has been very helpful to me in my communication challenges with my partner. She took the time at the start to understand in my past counseling and counselors of what worked well and what didn’t. She respected that input during our sessions. I appreciated it because we were able to get down to why I was using BetterHelp quickly and she had an idea of what would work for me.

Written by S.A. on Aug 20, 2019 after counseling with Emmily for 8 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, family conflicts, trauma and abuse, and self esteem

Emmily is amazing, supportive, provides very useful feedback, and asks thoughtful questions. Emmily has been my therapist for about 9 months now and I cannot imagine going through the past year without her support. I feel very blessed to have found her. I have been moving around different countries in multiple continents in the past year and Emmily has been very flexible in terms of changing timezones, and has been an integral support througout many changes in my life. She is also very knowledgeable and resourceful in many specific areas I needed help with. I have had different therapists in the past but Emmily has been by far the most caring and helpful. Thank you Emmily for all your help!

Written by C.O. on Jul 09, 2019 after counseling with Emmily for 1 month on issues concerning stress, anxiety, relationship issues, grief, intimacy-related issues, parenting issues, self esteem, and adhd

Emmily is not the first counselor I've had with BetterHelp, but she is BY FAR AND AWAY the best, and I plan to work with her for as long as I'm with BetterHelp (and she is, of course LOL)! She is kind, caring, funny, understanding, respectful, and she interacts and asks and/or tells me things to help me think about what I'm feeling/thinking/needing/etc. She's not one of those counselors who just sits back and says, "And how does that make you feel?" to everything and never gives you any actual, USEFUL feedback. In short, Emmily is the best!! :)

Written by L.A. on Jul 06, 2019 after counseling with Emmily for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, grief, sleeping disorders, self esteem, and compassion fatigue

Emmily really listens and has made the online therapy experience very valuable. I wasn't sure what to expect but it has been as helpful as "traditional in person" sessions for me. She is professional and good at her job! Very pleased.

Written by C.H. on Jun 04, 2019 after counseling with Emmily for 2 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, and bipolar disorder

Emmily keeps in touch with me, even when I go a day or two without responding. That means a lot! She's honestly helped!

Written by L.O. on May 30, 2019 after counseling with Emmily for 8 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, trauma and abuse, grief, and self esteem

I just love Emmily. She is so kind and compassionate, and really listens to me. She understands me on a level most people cannot, and she always knows just what to say to help me through a tough situation. My mental and emotional health have improved so much with her help.

Written by Z.I. on Apr 09, 2019 after counseling with Emmily for 2 months on issues concerning stress, anxiety, and sleeping disorders

This is a really good experience that Emmily helps me to explore myself even though sometimes I may not be seriously mentally unhealthy. Having someone being very natural and helping to dig into yourself and improve the way you think about problems, your perceptions, and where you went wrong is really helpful.

Written by M.A. on Apr 08, 2019 after counseling with Emmily for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, trauma and abuse, and self esteem

Her approach is warm and welcoming, she makes me feel like she's listening and actually cares about what I'm saying or feeling. She checks in if I don't respond for a few days and generally makes me feel important. I didn't realize how much just knowing someone cares enough to respond in a way that shows not only were they listening but that they understand would help me. I'm not easily impressed, but Emmily Weldon impressed me very quickly.

Written by J.A. on Mar 21, 2019 after counseling with Emmily for 1 month on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, trauma and abuse, grief, self esteem, and anger management

Emily Weldon is a great counsler who is supportive, compassionate, and reliable. She's constantly checking up on how I'm doing, listens carefully, and suggest great feedback. I definitely recommend Emily as a counselor, she has provided a huge amount of clarity in my life and continues to motivate me throughout this journey.

Written by G.R. on Feb 24, 2019 after counseling with Emmily for 1 month on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, self esteem, anger management, and coping with life changes

Emmily is so insightful. She never tells me what to do but guides me so I am able to make positive choices. She has been there for me in a hard part of my life. She is so caring and an amazing listener. I recommend her to anyone.

Written by R.O. on Feb 05, 2019 after counseling with Emmily for 3 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, and self esteem

Emmily is a great counselor, she listens well and offers great advice. She has really helped me get out of my slump and back on my feet. I would highly recommend her.

Written by A.N. on Feb 02, 2019 after counseling with Emmily for 4 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, addictions, relationship issues, family conflicts, grief, parenting issues, self esteem, and anger management

Emmily is warm and responsive. She is good at mirroring what I have been saying and asking good follow up that does not bring her own feeling or personality into the equation

Written by A.R. on Jan 22, 2019 after counseling with Emmily for 2 months on issues concerning depression, relationship issues, intimacy-related issues, and sleeping disorders

She's a tremendous ally and support. Thankful I was connected with this counselor and I'll likely stick to working with her for a while.

Written by T.I. on Jan 10, 2019 after counseling with Emmily for 2 months on issues concerning depression, and stress, anxiety

While being completely professional, Emmily is positive, encouraging, and quickly put me at ease. She has presented me with tools to facilitate communication in between sessions and in doing so helps me to re-focus on my personal goals. She thoroughly listens and adds perspective that I didn't previously consider. I have recommend her to three different people in the time that she has been counseling me. I am very grateful to have her council.

Emmily has been a wonderful person in my time of need. If it had not been for her, I would not be alive and had given up hope. She saved me and has brought me back to my regular self.
