    Emily Brown is a Licensed Professional Counselor who loves to work with adults struggling with identity issues, anxiety, depression, life transitions and others looking for growth in their lives. My non-judging and calm presence are referred to as unconditional positive regard, where I provide a safe environment to unpack issues in a manner that brings about true change. I focus on existential, and person-centered modalities to enable progress towards a healthier mental state. I strive to help each person become as genuine as possible. Progress can be made towards becoming more authentic by identifying obstacles blocking you from getting back to your "mission" and your purpose in life. It's only by identifying this goal that we derive more happiness and meaning. I have a Bachelor's degree in Psychology and counseling from University of North Texas and a Master's degree in Counseling from Texas Woman's University.


    I am a Licensed Professional Counselor with a MA in Counseling from Amberton University. Following life-changing paths with my clients is not my first career. I’ve been a writer, a teacher, and a homeschooling mom. I’ve survived trauma and divorce, fought depression, and lived with chronic illness. I’ve made tons of mistakes, and I’ve outright failed—more times than I can count. Sometimes I wasn’t sure I’d recover.

    Counseling helped me heal. And it can help you, too.

    Sometimes healing means diving deep—into your past, your pain, and even your shame. Your own depths can be a scary place.

    But there’s treasure down there, too, if you just know where to find it. Deep inside, there is a person created in God’s own image, uniquely wired to be like no one else in the world. You have gifts and strengths you may have forgotten… maybe even some you’ve never discovered.

    I’m honored to be able to offer a welcoming space for you to explore yourself. It’s safe here. You’re free to be completely, unashamedly you... without all those filters and masks we all wear when we’re afraid to let anyone see beneath the surface.

    I want to hear your story, offer validation, demonstrate acceptance and grace, and encourage you as you take those first steps towards becoming the person God designed you to be.
