Emily Mitchell, LPC

My name is Emily Mitchell and I am a Licensed Professional Counselor, and an Oregon native. Though I have been practicing therapy for the last four years, my work and passion for the mental health field has been prominent in my life since I was in high school. I’ve worked in mentorship programs, provided family counseling facilitation through the YWCA, and advocated for mental health awareness through personal platforms. In addition to providing therapy at The Healing Haven, I also provide therapy for a rural school district in Yamhill County.

Treatment Philosophy

I believe in the importance of collaboration within the client-therapist relationship, as this therapeutic alliance creates a foundation in which clients and their families are able to trust and thrive. My approach is a combination of client-centered, trauma-informed, and holistic as I consider clients the experts of their difficulties. I find that clients and families often have a good idea of what they want to achieve in treatment, and it is my job to facilitate their journey in obtaining those goals. Through my style of being genuine, empathetic, and providing unconditional positive regard, clients can experience successful outcomes in treatment. As a community member, I find it important to encourage education serving as a co-conference coordinator with the Oregon Board for Play Therapy and utilizes play therapy techniques with younger clients.

I provide individual and family therapy to those who may be experiencing:

• Stress, anxiety, & worry
• Depression & mood issues
• Relationship issues & divorce
• Trauma
• Grief & loss
• Adolescent emotional and behavioral challenges

I welcome all races, all religions, all sexual orientations, all gender identities and expressions, all abilities, all ethnicities, all bodies, ALL PEOPLE.
