Emily Edwards Holm, LPC, RPT, NCC, Counselor in Vestavia Hills
As a Registered Play Therapist and Licensed Professional Counselor, I focus on treating children, adolescents, parents, families, and adults. I have experience working with diverse populations and look forward to helping you or a loved one manage their difficulties. Some examples include mood and anxiety disorders, behavior modification, attention and behavior problems, ADHD, Autism Spectrum, social skills, grief, sports, school, family, separation and divorce, and relationship issues. I offer coping, communication, and relaxation skills to help clients reach their full potential.
I received a Bachelor's Degree in Psychology with a Minor in Exercise and Sport Sciences from Tulane University in New Orleans, LA in 2005. I graduated from the University of Alabama with a Master's degree in Counselor Education and a specialty in Play Therapy in 2007.
I have experience and training in a variety of treatment modalities including Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Play Therapy, mindfulness (Acceptance and Commitment Therapy), and Solution Focused Therapy (for those needing short term treatment). I look forward to helping you and your loved ones.
