Emily L Rizzo, LCPC, LPC, NCC, Counselor in Washington
I have worked with teenagers, adults, and families for the last 10 years as a counselor/therapist. I am passionate about working with the LGBTQ population and with people from diverse cultural backgrounds. I consistently work with clients regarding depression, anxiety, motivation, trauma, grief, understanding their identity, familial relations, gender identity, sexual identity, sexual/relationship needs, communication in relationships, and self-integration. Extensive background of working with POC. Certified yoga teacher, incorporating healing movement and breath work into sessions. Strong DBT background and will have Advanced Trauma certification by June, 2017
We all deserve to be heard, understand our feelings, and speak our truth.
Counseling is helpful during a hard time and can be something we come back to when we need support or a tune-up. I believe counseling is part of our every day; we need to take a moment for ourselves to be healthy.
