Emily Goins, MSW Intern
My passion from a young age has been to learn how to help others and empower them to help themselves. I strive to provide an environment of being heard in a non-judgmental, compassionate, caring manner that encourages curiosity. I want to help you believe in your own abilities, strengths and values.
I incorporate a variety of treatment modalities to fit the unique experience of each individual. I pull heavily from systems theory and incorporate techniques from several modalities including, but not limited to, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Solution Focused and Motivational Interviewing (MI).
I provide services to teens and adults for individuals and couples and persons in relationships, including LGBTQ+ and non-traditional relationships.
