Emily Snodgrass, LPC-Intern, Ms
It is my belief that every person is innately different. Each individual is intricately composed of life experience, family expectation, societal norms, emotional expression, spiritual connection, and biological nature. I want to provide a safe space for you to talk, move, feel, and express your authentic self. In this space, we will work together to explore the inner workings of your natural responses and turn what was once overwhelming into overcoming. This journey of self-discovery will not always be easy, but together we will develop a relationship of trust and empathy that will help guide us toward your personal goals.
I facilitate counseling for individuals, couples/romantic partners, and families from an integrative approach. This approach supports the holistic view of the Self, somatic attunement, and awareness of the neurobiological components associated with mental health. Focusing on these areas collectively allows us for multiple avenues towards healing. Research has shown that by integrating the mind-body connection with traditional talk therapy, the autonomic nervous systems of the body are able to regulate and process a wide range of experiences. This goes beyond typical talk therapy and can be a different therapeutic experience. Learning how the nervous system supports growth and healing from all types of trauma is an advantage with this modality. Exploring your biology rather than attaching to the biography of your experience supports curiosity with sensations & strengthens the capacity for your body to heal.
I am a Registered Counseling Intern. I obtained a Masters in Counseling Psychology from Avila University in 2018. I am currently obtaining an Oregon Counseling License under the clinical supervision of Ariel Yabek, LMFT. I completed a clinical trauma training which focused on working with the neurobiological legacy of trauma. This is supplemented with a 200-hour trauma-informed Registered Yoga Instructor with emphasis on mindfulness, meditation, and breath work. In addition to individual, couples/romantic partners, and family psychotherapy, I also conduct psycho-educational groups for anxiety management.
