Emily Flores, LPC
Preferred Name: Emily
I am a licensed therapist that deeply cares about improving the quality of my client's mental health. I experienced my own struggles with mental health in our field we call ourselves, "wounded warriors". Many of us experience a disconnection from our self-consciousness due earlier traumas during that period. Some of those experiences include: stress, anxiety, depression, trauma, childhood wounds, neglect, abuse, and other of life's challenges. What if I told you could work through that pain and connect to your highest self. A more meaningful and positive self-image. The highest self is connected to intuition, truth, calmness, wisdom, and compassionate. Finding our highest self can be challenging however achievable. My treatment of modalities are embedded in traditional psychology training and interconnected with holistic healing.
Education & Experience
I earned my BA. in education and was a teacher for 8 years. I changed my major when I noticed many of my students were struggling with their mental health. My journey started when I started caring more about my student's mental/emotional well being rather than if they completed their homework. I went back to school and earned an MA in psychology. My career path has led me to working in all levels of care in mental health. I have experience in inpatient, residential, substance abuse, IOP, and currently outpatient private practice.
