About

Ian Esmay is a Licensed Clinical Mental Health Counselor who has been working in the field of counseling for over 10 years in a variety of settings. His specialties include anxiety, depression, trauma, LGBTQ+ issues, stress, gender identity, schizophrenia, and more. He has come to learn that counseling can benefit anyone and help everyone find their true self. It isn’t about being perfect, just the best version of yourself. Ian's role as your therapist is to provide non-judgmental support in a safe space where you can explore your genuine feelings and individuality.
He is willing to work with anyone, but his primary focus is adults struggling with emotional issues. He has been trained in cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), dialectical behavioral therapy (DBT), motivational interviewing, seeking safety, and many others. The main focus is to assist people in living a healthy life in their own way.
Although he has a wide variety of experiences, Ian believes each person is unique and the benefit of counseling comes from a solid relationship. He is always willing to be a positive and empathetic voice in your life if you are ready for it. Ian looks forward to meeting you!
