We are passionate about helping individuals address their concerns, learn healthy coping skills and work to reach their own personal level of healing. We accomplish this through engaging the client in a positive therapeutic process. We provide a welcoming, tranquil and safe environment conducive to the therapeutic process. As well as encourage the individual therapist to utilize their knowledge of different therapeutic approaches to help the client reach resolution and healing. We are currently offering both in-person sessions and virtual sessions, which utilize a HIPPAA compliant virtual platform.
We understand that life can be hard sometimes but believe that through counseling, an individual can reach the point of change they desire to improve their quality of life. We believe strongly in providing a positive and welcoming environment in which a collaborative process between client and therapist can occur ultimately providing the client with the tools needed to heal.
The lives of a first responder can change in a matter of seconds and with those changes can come a complex variation in feelings and a sense of isolation. At Emily Boris, LPC,LLC, we are not only Certified First Responder Counselors, we also have a greater understanding of the different concerns a first responder may be facing. Whether it’s issues with depression/anxiety, PTSD, engaging in self-destructive behaviors with or without suicidality or having relationship concerns, we are able to provide the therapy needed to find path to healing.
Whether you are interested in starting your own practice or need professional consultation on particular cases, we are able to provide a variety of services.
