– Counseling

We provide Individual outpatient mental health or drug and alcohol therapy in a warm, welcoming and safe environment. We provide these services through the utilization of various therapeutic modalities such as Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy, Strength-Based Therapy and Trauma Focused Therapy, only to name a few. Through the utilization of different approaches, the client is able to openly process their concerns, set healthy therapeutic goals with their therapist and together actively work to begin the healing process.

At Emily Boris Counseling and Consulting Services, we understand that this healing process looks very different for each individual client. We take pride in working with the client to establish a healthy pace in therapy so that they can process their complex thoughts and feelings. The therapist will assist the client in navigating these thoughts and feelings by giving them a safe environment to express them, while also identifying possible solutions and coping skills needed in the healing process. Over time, as the client begins to heal, they will also learn how to utilize their new coping skills in their everyday lives so that they can establish and maintain a healthy sense of well-being.

We understand that the process of engaging in therapy can be very intimidating and we strive to make the process simple and the environment comfortable so that the client can do the work needed to reach their own unique level of peace. We encourage you to explore the website and look forward to hearing from you in the near future.

Depression is more than just feeling sad or going through a “rough patch”. It’s a serious mental health condition that requires understanding and medical care. Left untreated, depression can be devastating for the people who have it and for their families. Fortunately, once diagnosed and engaged in treatment, many people do find resolution to their symptoms.

Anxiety Disorders

Everyone experiences anxiety at some point in life but not all anxiety is the same. For some, anxiety will be fleeting and not cause major disruption to a person’s life. However, for the majority, anxiety when triggered will produce feelings of intense fear and distress so overwhelming that it prevents the individual from engaging in everyday things. Anxiety disorders are the most common mental health concern in the United States.


Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is characterized by inattention, hyperactivity and impulsivity. While ADHD is most commonly diagnosed in young people, there continues to be an increase in adult diagnoses.  ADHD’s prevalence in women and girls is steadily increasing and also being widely under-diagnosed.

Executive functioning describes a set of higher-order mental skills that help you to get things done. The frontal lobe is the area of the brain that controls executive functioning skills. Deficits in executive functioning skills make it difficult to gather information and structure it for evaluation, as well as difficulty taking stock of your surroundings and changing your behavior in response.

Trauma and Grief

Psychological trauma is an emotional response that may set in after distressing, life-threatening, or an emotionally scarring event. Traumatic events can be anything emotionally impacting such as the sudden loss of someone we loved, a loss of a relationship, an incidence of violence, emotional or physical abuse, bullying, a workplace incident involving harassment or violence, a global pandemic and combat. An Individual can experience grief whenever they experience a loss. There are different stages of grief however how a person moves through these stages can vary from person to person. A person experiencing grief is also more likely to experience a level of depression and engaging in therapy during the grief process can help the individual proceed through it in a healthier manner.

Addiction and Recovery

Addiction is a chronic disease characterized by drug seeking behavior and use that is compulsive, or difficult to control, despite harmful consequences. The path to drug addiction begins with the voluntary act of taking drugs. However over time, a person’s ability to choose not to take a drug becomes compromised and seeking and taking the drug becomes compulsive. Recovery is the process of abstaining from drug usage, engaging in therapy, attending support groups and making whole life changes so that the root causes of the addiction can be addressed and the individual can learn to heal and remain sober.

Self Esteem and Stress Management

Self-esteem is an individual’s perception, opinion and beliefs about themselves. For most individuals, self-esteem is also how they value themselves and can be so deeply rooted that change can be difficult. For most, self-esteem will fluctuate in a repetitive process, that changes over time, going from positive self-esteem to negative self-esteem depending on events in their life and experiences they may have had.

Stress management offers a range of strategies to help an individual better deal with stress and difficulty (adversity) in their life. Managing stress can help a person lead a more balanced, healthier lifestyle.

Anger Management & Emotional Regulation

Anger is an emotional state that varies in intensity from mild irritation to intense fury and rage. Like other emotions, it is accompanied by physiological and biological changes; when you get angry, your heart rate and blood pressure go up, as do the levels of your energy hormones, adrenaline, and noradrenaline.

Anger can be caused by both external and internal events.

Emotional regulation is learning how to identify the range of emotions that we experience and then developing an understanding/coping skills needed to keep those emotions in an “normal” range of functioning.
